I wanted to let you know, I lost Ella to bloat last Monday. I have just not been able to write until now. I miss her so badly. She went every where with me.
It was 2 am and I got up and went into the restroom. Ella was very comfortable in her bed half asleep.
I had only been in there maybe a min and I heard this horrible throat noise. I came out and she was throwing up and acting like something I had never seen before. I got her in the car and on the way called the University Of Georgia ER and said I am on my way. Surgery was performed, but her stomach had twisted and half of it was dead up to her esophagus. I did not want to let her go, but for her sake I had to.
Ella was a once in a lifetime dog. She was my soulmate. She watched over me and got me going on days I did not want to go. My only regret is I did not have her longer. She was so smart and beautiful. Human like. Never have I been with a dog like her.
I want to thank Mosby for helping me give her a new lease on life ,last year, which she enjoyed to the fullest.Bless all of you for what you do. Here is one of my last photos I took of her. Such a beautiful girl. Inside and out.
In Memory Of Ella “Ms Gant”
“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
