Zeke (Hey Who Whiz It)

Recommended Posts

Zeke – Hey Who Whiz It – 4/6/09 – 7/20/20.  I never in a million years would have thought he would be gone before Larry.  All he did was go up the stairs and his wrist shattered.  With his back end getting so bad, trying to repair it or amputating the whole leg was not a good option so we made the incredibly painful decision to let him go – he was in a terrible amount of pain.  I would not wish this on my worst enemy – he was in SO much pain. :cry1 :cry1  The doctor at the Evet wasn’t 100% sure it was osteo so I was beating myself up, wondering if we made the right decision.  Later that day I emailed the x-rays to his regular vet, Dr. Finan, and thankfully, she said absolutely it was osteo and he wouldn’t have survived the surgery and we made the right decision letting him go….so at least that made me feel a tiny bit better.

Bruce and I are devastated.  Zeke was truly Bruce’s special boy, they both just adored each other, and he was my silly blue bear.  I always said he was a Labrador in a blue greyhound suit – he had so much energy and was such a GOOD boy.  He was the smartest dog I’ve ever seen.  He LOVED kids and all the kids at the park would shout “ZEKE!” when he walked by and they’d all run to come see him and love on him.  He had perpetual ETS and the stinkiest of farts LOL The last thing that happened before he went to go up the stairs was he looked up at me and chattered LOUDER than he ever had before, and I gave him a big kissie right on his sweet nosie.  I’m forever grateful for that. :cry1 

Run free and fast at the bridge, our sweet Zekie Bear.  There will be no more rain or thunder or *$#()*#)&  storm sirens to scare you anymore.  He would always come and lay by his big bro Larry for support when he was scared.  I’m grateful we had 7 ½ wonderful years with you.  Your big brother Larry misses you.  Zeke would always lie in front of Bruce’s part of the couch (in the “L” area), on the plain carpet and yesterday after we got back from letting Zeke go, Larry went and lay down in the same spot, for over TWO HOURS.  Larry has NEVER laid there before and rarely if ever just lies on the carpet.  He was trying to make his DaddyMan feel better, and it was Zeke that told him to do it – of that I am absolutely sure.


I told Rainey and Nube to be there to greet you and show you the best clouds to lay your sweet blue head on.  You will forever be missed, loved and cherished by your DaddyMan and That Food Lady (me, :lol:).  I hope there are a lot of chipmunks and squirrels to stalk in Heaven.  Rest in peace, my sweet blue bear.  Be sure to send us a sign that you made it ok.  We WILL see you again.

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 heal and 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.

I'm so incredibly sorry. It was a horrible way to lose a sweet beautiful blue boy, even though you know you made the right decision.

Godspeed Zeke.
