A Sad Time

It's been a while since I last posted.  I have been taking care of my very sweet little Pomeranian named "Spike"  or "Spikey" as we called him.  I had to let him go last Saturday as he was suffering so badly.  Now, I know....to never give your dog any kind of bone other than a steak bone, but I let someone else persuade me to let Spikey have a pork chop bone and because of this character flaw in me, I have lost my dearest friend.  It will be a long recovery because he was the kind of pet that everyone would wish for.  My grandchildren live away from me and my husband is married to his job, so Spike was my friend 24/7.  Everywhere I look, I see him.  I'm hoping that somehow this information will be helpful to everyone, and possibly save a doggie's life, but also I am writing this as a catharsis for myself.  Never give your dog a pork chop bone! ......and always trust your instincts.  My baby is running in Heaven. 


  1. so sorry for your loss-at least you have passed on some good information for those of us with dogs-just sorry it had to be under sad circumstances.

  2. Hi Annie....I have tears in my eye's at the moment after reading about your dear Spikey!
    I am so very sorry. I understand about seeing him everywhere. I had a white kitty that we had adopted. He was with me through thick and thin. Through my surgeries and poor health. My grandchildren live far away too. Hubby is gone all day and my elderly mom lives with us. Sam was my refuge and constant companion. When Sam passed away
    I was so very sad.
    Spikey will live on in your heart forever. I believe that someday we will reunite with our loved ones as well as our beloved pets. When you feel Spikey near..he is! He loves you!

    Warm hugs to you,
