We lost Gus today... 5 months and 1 day post amputation.  Not to Osteosarcoma!  He got bloat this morning (twisted stomach / intestines) and it was a very sudden, very terrible case.  I had him to the vet hospital within 30 minutes of his first symptoms and we still couldn't save him.  I'm in complete shock. He was doing so well.

Heartbroken to hear this!  Absolutely heartbroken! Yes, stunned and shocked!!!!  We ALL cry with you today.  So very, very, very sorry.

I have now words right now.  Not tnat there are any words ever.  Bloat comes up literally out of the blue  and rarely does it turn out well,  even with the earliest intervention.  So brutal.  So unfair.

I'm  just  so sorry.

For now, all any of us can do is surround  you with our love and hugs.  We love Gus❤

Nooo... oh man I am so terribly sorry. Bloat is horrible, damn. I am just so sorry. Gus was a great pup and you took wonderful care of him. My heart is breaking for you, I know you are devastated. 

Sending you the biggest hugs that i can, I'm sitting here crying with you. Please find peace in such a dark sad time. Sometimes no matter how hard you fight their time just comes anyways. 

I have no doubt your boy is being greeted by all of our angels and they will show him how to fly free and whole again.

With much sympathy and love,

Jackie and Huck ❤️❤️🌹❤️❤️

Woah I am soooooo sad to read this! My heart goes out to you, bloat is so sudden and distressing. I know you must be feeling so shattered right now! Please know that you did everything to give Gus the pain-free life he deserved. He knew he was loved up until his last breath, no dog could ask for more in life.

If and when you feel up to posting a tribute to Gus in Coping with Loss, we would be honored to be part of the remembrance. I'm so very, very sorry for your sudden loss.

I was so sorry to read this-- I know that Gus was greeted by Otis and all of our other beloved pets when he crossed. As I've learned, there really is nothing like going through this experience and then having to say goodbye. It is so, so, so hard. My heart goes out to you, but I know that Gus was lucky to have you in his life and you did everything you could for him. It helped me a lot to make my post in Coping with Loss, so perhaps when you are ready you can share more. Sending you a big hug. I know that it will take a long time for you to be not sad, but I am wishing you comfort. Lots of love,
