RIP My Angel

At 6:15pm, Lilo's little body finally gave out on her. Just after the front desk told the vet I was there to see her, she stopped breathing and arrested. I watched while they tried to revive her and bring her back to me. But she was gone. I selfishly begged for her come back to me even though I knew she was tired. I sat and held my baby and told her how sorry I was that I could not fix her and how much I loved her until they came to take her away. My heart feels like it has been ripped to pieces and will never be whole again. I never in a million years thought that snorting pile of fur would make such an impact on my life. She was the catalyst for so many changes in my life and for that I will always be grateful.




July 18, 2003 - July 6, 2011

I will do a proper post for her in a day or two, but you have all been so loving and supportive that I wanted you to know that she has crossed and she is breathing easy now.

Salinger The Pug said...

Oh Jess ((((HUG))) We are so so so sorry over here and really thought we would hear some good news about sweetie Lilo. We feel lucky that we got to spend the time that we did with her and know that she's entertaining everyone on the other side of the bridge right now with her antics! I bet she's in her Hooter's girl outfit and passing a big tray of wings to all of the sweeties that made it to the bridge before she did!

You were a great mom to Lilo and we'll never forget her!

Love,
Salinger, Laura, Kevin and Holden

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. As the proud mama of a 8 year old pug, my heart breaks for you. Pugs are amazing lil creatures and they bring so much love and joy into our lives. She knows just how much her mama loved her.

Punchbugpug said...

Oh that Lilo rocked every outfit I made her!!! Through my tears I am remembering how crazy she was in the car that day jumping and climbing all over me...then later at the Posses' house climbing all over my head. She was one of a kind and was lucky to have you for her mama. Don't ever doubt yourself!

Remi said...

Oh no. I'm SO sorry! Very recently, my 8-year-old kitty was unexpectedly taken from me, so I know the emptiness and pain you are feeling. Even though it is comforting knowing she can breath easier now, it will still take time adjusting to a different way of life for you all. Please allow yourself time to grieve. I found doing a memorial blog very therapeutic. Remember...we are all here for you.

Sabrina PugTails said...

Jess, my heart breaks for you.

I cried when I saw your Facebook post last night and immediately gave all of my babies hugs and kisses as they helped dry my tears. I always loved seeing Lilo at the KPR events - she looked so cute in her beautiful dresses! You are a great pug mom - she was lucky to have you!

Payton said...

So so sorry, but at least she is breathing freely now. I know we all wish we could take away the pain.
Love,
Christy

"May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sunshine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the hollow of his hand"

RIP sweet Lilo xxx
