Tribute to Moebert
I Lost The Love of My Life,
My Dog Moebert
I lost Moe to cancer on June 3, 2010.
He was my buddy, my heart and soul.
This is the last post that I thought I would be writing so soon after we lost our other beloved dog Curley to cancer on April 23, 2010.
Not that I didn’t love Curley but Moebert was the love of my life, my heart and soul. I am so devastated over his lost that no words can express what I am feeling.
He was acting strange that morning when I left for work and I just thought there must be a storm coming. (He always was afraid of thunderstorms.) I thought that was the reason that he was so upset. Little did I know what I would find when I got home.
When he didn’t greet me at the door I knew something was wrong. He was lying on his bed, his mouth and nose were so cold even his whole body. He had labored breathing and was so weak. I went to call the Vet and when I came back into the room he was standing but not for very long. He looked so pale, I know that sounds odd but now that I look back at those last moments together he almost had a ghostly look about him when he was standing there staring at me. It was like he waited for me to get home and now he could say good-bye.
I took him to the Emergency Animal Vets because my Vet had left for the day. When I got there they came out with a gurney to take him in and said they were going to start oxygen and a IV right away and a few minutes after they took him back they came out and said he went into cardiac arrest and what did I want them to do…I told them everything they could to save my dog, he’s my life.
There was nothing they could do, they couldn’t bring him back. The Vet said he had a hemo-abdomen which was from a (hemangiosarcoma) which is a bleeding tumor in the spleen. When the tumor is located in the spleen or liver, the clinical sign is usually due to a rupture of the tumor that subsequently bleeds into the abdomen. The Vet said to confirm that she inserted a needle into his belly and pulled back a syringe full of blood (which she showed me), and that she was so sorry but there was really nothing that could have been done to save my Moebert.
They let me see him and ask what I wanted to do. I told them I am taking him home. So they said they would wrap him in a blanket and bring him out to me. I cried all the way home, it was a wonder with all the traffic that I made it home but I did and we dug the grave and made his casket and laid him to rest. My heart is so broken and empty I know that each day it will get better but right now I don’t think that day will ever come.
Everyone tells me that I shouldn’t feel guilty but I do so much that it is almost too painful to bear. My mind keeps saying what if, why I didn’t see things, why didn’t I do something, it’s too late now…
I really feel that I let both Moe and Curley down which I know will haunt me forever no matter what people say. I loved him more than life and I would have gladly have traded places with him.
From day one when he came into the house he let Curley know that he was going to be top dog. He was so little he couldn’t even get up the steps without help but that didn’t make any difference.
He even ruled my sons’ three dogs with just a look, he wasn’t nasty or aggressive but they all showed him respect. As you can see in the picture below all three were bigger than him. Especially Bailey!
Dillion, Bailey and Tyler
He loved playing with his weasel ball (without the ball) he made a game out of any kind of treats; especially Porky Puffs or Porkhide Bones you gave him.
My friend Hope said, “I believe that everyone gets that one dog in life that is the one you will never quite stop missing, the one that has a place in your heart that will be treasured always.”
I believe she was right, I have had other dogs in my life and I have loved them all but Moebert to me was a one of a kind, his personality, his loyalty, his unconditional love that he showed everyone that came into his life. He always greeted everyone with his Lipizzan horse prance or his big paw hand shake.
All the words in the world cannot express the magnitude of the loss that I feel for the loss of my Moebert. No time on earth is long enough to share our love with our pets or to prepare our hearts for saying good-bye. Life brings tears, smiles and memories. The tears will dry, the smiles will fade, but the memories will live on forever.
That is why I made this “Tribute to Moebert Video”. I watch this so many times during the day and night because it brings me closer to what I have lost….
My World, My Heart and Soul.
My (Moedawg) may be gone from my touch, but he will never be gone from my heart or my memories. The untimely death of my dog Moebert has turned my world upside down.
In Memory of Moebert
