I too am in shock. Yesterday started out like any other day. Everything was fine. She had her breakfast, I even gave did her little nails in the morning.

About 11 I sat down at the table and looked over at her in the bedroom. I rushed to her as it was clear she was struggling. She was seizuring (seizure-ing). I called the Vet to say not to go to lunch that something was wrong with Shoshi and I was going to get her there.

I couldn't lift her but got her as far as the front porch. I was screaming for help and a neighbor came over but again, we couldn't lift her. I called the Vet screaming that I needed help and they were on the way. I've got to say they were such a blessing.

It was likely about 10 mins and they were here with a van. The seizure didn't stop.

I followed them to the Vets where they began to work on her. The seizure wouldn't stop. They struggled to get a vein, but finally were able to do so. Her heart was working but she was struggling to breathe. At that point, I told them it was time.

I held her close the whole time. I have never loved anything so much as I did my Shoshi.

Rosa, I hope these words can give you some comfort...

“There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived through its turnings and walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.” —Suzanne Clothier

My dear sweet Shoshi. She was so happy seeing the holiday tree. Hers is the pretty white stocking hung by the chimney with care and now all I have is a locket of hair.

Rosa, Rosa you know much better than I can say what you have from your Shoshanna. Under the Lord, there is no way to measure the riches from your sweet, sweet girl-no way to measure on earth.

I am so very sorry for your loss.
