Wave & Willie

I never posted here when Wavey died and since I'm still relatively numb, I figured now was as good a time as ever.

 

I had posted my medical questions when Willie stopped eating. The majority seemed to think he was depressed, as we could well understand. Well, turns out that Willie wasn't sick with grief, but was sick with ?????? which led to acute renal failure. He spent his last week on earth in the hospital with IV fluids and medications. His body shut down and we had to help him to the bridge on Friday.

He was literally dying before our eyes.

 

Wave left us August 23 and sixteen days later, Willie joined her.

 

We're not sure what took him away from us - the vet is leaning towards Leptospirosis and if not that possibly kidney cancer. We'll know about the Lepto this week. We began treatment for it anyway.

 

Wave and Willie were best friends. They were with us over six years. Two seniors came in our lives (one for a year and one for about six months) but Wave and Willie were - well, it's hard to know what word to use. They were WaveandWillie. You never saw one without the other. They came into our lives a few weeks apart. Wave was only 18 months and she was so naughty. I wanted to give her back, but the group swore she'd be better with a friend, so in came Willie. He chilled her out, but she taught him to be naughty as well. Not what we had planned, but she was our butch bitch and well, he was Willie. Deathly afraid of flies on his butt, but a guard dog, keeping all his girls safe. Afterall, he was the man of the house.

 

The house is so empty now. We feel lost and alone and it was a huge blow to our perfect little family. Our only solace is that they are together, just as they would have wished. We figure Wave called Willie a sissy for not sticking it out without her, but he took in stride, like he always did.

 

Thanks for all the support and kind words.

Jen & Gwynn

Wave, Willie, Midge and Opal all healthy and playing together again

Oh No!! I'm so sorry.......I know the emptiness. It hurts so bad, almost like someone cut out your insides from the shoulders to the waist.

 

We're here for you.

I am so sorry. words don't even begin to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I can only hope they just needed to be together. I pray for comfort and lots of strength to get you all through this. They were a beautiful pair. May your memories of them become your most cherished treasure. God bless you all.

I am so sorry for your losses. You wrote a lovely tribute for WaveandWillie.

Missing my sweet girl Scout. My snuggler, my chow-hound, my kissy girl.
It never thunders at the Bridge, and your food bowl is ALWAYS filled.

So strange not living in Atty World. I was a love struck handmaiden to your every whim.

I am so, so sorry. Try to take some comfort in knowing they are together again. :candle :candle

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.

I remember when you first posted about losing Wave. :cry1 No doubt they needed to be with each other, though I know that doesn't mend your broken heart. Know that you did the best that you could, and they are smiling down on you :grouphug :grouphug :grouphug
