Goodbye sweet boy 😪
Gibson was my constant companion these past 14 years. He joined our family right after Landon and I got married. He was with us through 2 home purchases, my pregnancy and the girls' childhood. He sat in on every conversation Landon and I had in the kitchen as we have made life decisions. And he was by my side as I've struggled with depression, postpartum, and suicidal thoughts. He was my rock. He will be missed endlessly. 😪
Bit of a scary day for me yesterday 😔 | Story down below 👇🏻
What started out as a great day (I’ll get more into that tomorrow) quickly turned into an emergency trip to the vet. My hoomans took me for a walk to a nearby reservoir that I’ve walked before. It was showing about 79 ° but in the sun it felt hotter - still we had water and shade so we thought we’d be good. Halfway through the walk I couldn’t cool down and started making choking noises while panting plus I was refusing water. We were kind of stuck but my hoomans did their best to safely get me back to the car where finally I drank but still I couldn’t stop my choking pants. They decided to rush me to an emergency vet since my vet was closed and they immediately sedated me and put me on oxygen. The vet said I have an elongated soft palate / brachycephalic airway syndrome which means when it’s too hot or I’m too stressed it’s hard for me to catch my breath. This is the first sign I’ve shown for it besides the CavSnort which my normal vet said was normal in pups like me. So thankfully I was able to come home that night after waking up and given the okay and now I’m resting up and getting back to being me. Still have to get back to my vet and work some things out and see about some other things but for now I’m just enjoying some relaxing time with the hoomans 💙 Anyone else ever go through something similar and have tips for my very worried Mahm?
