RIP My Beloved Gizmo


A week ago today my beloved dog Gizmo of 13 yrs sadly passed away. The pain and heartache is still very raw and it still hurts so much even when I try not to think about it.  I know that time is a healer as pain will subside and eventually turn into good memories. I know some people dont understand how hard this is as they think the loss of a pet must be easy but for me it has been as devastating as losing a family member

It was very unexpected and devastating since Gizmo did not even show any signs prior until she was brought into the hospital for blood work due to bleeding gums and a fever, that was when they pointed out bruised spots all over her back. She had to stay overnight for IV, blood work, X-Rays etc.. though no one there could figure out what was wrong with her even after all these tests. Then we received the call we dread to get that she was in critical condition and we had to go back immediately. By the time we got back to the hospital she was very weak and blood clot has spread throughout her body, we asked for a specialist to rush over to do a ultra sound in hopes to find the cause/treatment. This took a long 30+ mins which we were by her side comforting her while giving her oxygen.  I guess we both knew the end was near hearing her breath abnormally but the ultra sound was our last hope.. by the time the specialist finally made it in, Gizmo took one last long breath and she was gone at approx 4:45pm with us beside her. The specialist ruled out the cause was due to low blood platelet count resulting massive internal bleeding which could happen in a matter of hours. My heart is aching so much and a part of our family is gone. What was once a pack of 3 is now 2 leaving Rusty and Pebbles left which I don’t even think they have realized Gizmo is gone.

Gizmo you are in doggie heaven now you brought us so much love and joy throughout these 13 years together .. You were so smart, loyal, beautiful and gentle.. so snuggly and soft . I miss your polar bear walk, those cute sounds you made, the cute head tilting and your soft gentle licks. I hope to see you in my dreams and we miss you soooo much.  Til we meet again.. you will be in our hearts forever.
