Our Big Guy Freddie Is Gone!


Recommended Posts

It is with a very heavy heart and lots of tears that I post about Freddie's passing! Freddie was dignosed back in May with

heart failure and fluid in his lungs. Annie and her vet started him 2 meds in hopes of buying him more time. Over the last 2 months Freddie had his good days and he had his bad days. But even when he was having a bad day he could always manage a smile for Annie! Freddie was a smiler! But it became evident that Freddie was on a down hill slide starting last week friday. They were able to up his meds but that still wasn't helping by monday of this week. And he had been getting Annie up at 1:30 am the last few days to go potty and that wasn't like Freddie at all! And then Tuesday into Wensday is when he got worse. He got her up at 1:30 and and then a hour later.And he hasn't been comfortable most of this past week and he had been pacing a lot too. By Wensday morning it was clear that Freddie was ready to go. He looked at her and she knew it was the right thing to do. She didn't want him to suffer and it was clear that he was done fighting his illness's. So we meet Annie and Zach at the vet Wensday afternoon and helped Freddie cross over!

Freddie has been the most amazing hound you could ever ask for! He spent the last 8 wonderful years with our family! And I wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything! Freddie has done lots of events for GPA over the years. And everyone just loved him! He was one of one in a million hounds! And if it weren't for one of our own GPA adopter's who knew Freddie's trainer. We wouldn't have met him at all!

Run free Freddie! We love and miss you very much!

So sorry for your loss of Freddie :grouphug .




When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
