Echo is at the Rainbow Bridge
« on: January 19, 2009, 12:58:50 pm »
Yesterday morning Echo was acting disoriented when I went to let her go outside. She was my female Siberian Husky and was 10 years old. She has had seizures at about one every 3 months since she was 4 years old. Typically she would act disoriented for an hour or so afterward. So I figured she had had one earlier while in her crate. She went outside and laid on the back porch. I let her in about an hour later. She went into her crate and laid down. I checked on her about an hour later and she had deteriorated, She could not see and was breathing heavily. I offered her some water and she drank it. It appeared to me like she had a stroke. She went to the Rainbow bridge about an hour after that. I was with her when she took her last breath. It was so sad. She was fine the day before. In a way I am glad it was not a long drawn out illness and she died at home. I feel it was just her time.
It has been a hard time for me as I have lost 3 of my furbabies in 5 months time. Grizelda had to be PTS in August, she became to frail and was in pain and had stoped eating. She was around 15 or 16 years old.She was my Pointer cross. Then Marksman my male Siberian husky who had doggy alzheimers had gone down in his hind end had to be PTS in September he was 12 years old. And now Echo...

I am so sorry to hear of poor Echo's passing. 
At least you were there with her to take that first step across the bridge...

It is my sincerest hope that my 14 year old Chili will pass to the rainbow bridge as your Echo did. Quietly and in my arms. I can think of no better send off for your baby. :'(

Our hearts are with you and share your pain. But no more seizures for your Echo. Green fields and cool running brook under the Rainbow bridge.

I lost 2 in one year and thought I would die.  I can't imagine losing 3 in 5 months.  I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers.
