it's almost time to say goodbye

sara and ryan came to get me from the hospital this morning, so i am home now. the nice vets gave me fluids through a tube, but they told me there's not much more we can do because the cancer has moved into my organs.

for now, i'm just going to lie out in the backyard in the shade and enjoy some time with my family. i'm not in too much pain really, and i am still drinking some water, but i just don't think i can hang on much longer. even though wienerblabs are world-renowned for being excellent fighters, i think it's almost time for me to go.

i keep telling sara and ryan not to be sad, and that i am so glad that they let me adopt them. they say that they really would have liked to have more time with me, but i am reminding them that i have had the best 25 months that i could ever have imagined!! even if it took more than a year for my people to discover pupcakes, and even if i was sick near the end, i have had a wonderful time!

Scubee, noooooo.
My humans keep telling me Chessa will be there (wherever that is) to give you lots of doggie kisses. And they say she will play with you lots.
But I don't want you to go.
I love you little buddy. You are the best.

My dearist Scubee
We love you so and wish you could be around for a bit longer too, but you have been such an amazing pup and made all of our lives so much fuzzier and happier and we could not ask for anything more from you. You hold a very speical place in our hearts and you have shown Fernwood what an amazing weinerblabs you are. Rest well Scubee, and run free and happy for forever with our dear Chessa.

Scubee
I cried and cried when I read your comments and post.

I don't know what to say.
more than 6 years ago, our family dog had renal failure. She was not in pain but could not longer hold down food or even water.
It was time to go.

We didn't know if it was okay to keep her on drips or to let her go with dignity and compassionate medical intervention.

You see, I had grown up with her in my life. She was always there.

Was it okay to let her go ?
Was it enough for her?
We hired many animal communicators and eventually got a clear message that seemed like it was our dog talking. She passed away peacefully in our arms and was laid down to rest.
I am crying as I post this.

I am sending you lots of love and faith in that we all meet our loved ones again.

Love
Fei and Eve( the human)

Boomer and his mom Carol said...

Dear Scubee,

Though we never met I am so sorry about this. Cancer is a very scary thing, for people and animals. I pray that God will bless you and your family during this time. Though your time may be short here on earth, it will be infinite in heaven. (and pain free too!)

Enjoy the time you have my dear pooch. Drink some water and lounge about in the shade, and know that lots of doggies (and humans) prayers are with you.

Ike said...

Wally sent me over. I hope you aren't feeling any pain and I wish your family strength.

Scubee, You are such a brave little guy. We are feeling so sad for you and your family right now, but are very happy that you have had the best months ever with them. I'm sure this has been the best 25 for Sara and Ryan too. We're thinking about you and sending loads of furry snuggles. You are the most amazing Weinerblab we have ever known.

Peanut said...

Oh Scubee we will miss you. You were the one and only weinerblab we knew. My mom is crying right now as this makes her sad but we are glad you had to have a great 25 months with sara and ryan.

Ruby Bleu said...

Lots of Loving Licks, Ruby

((((((((((((Sara and Ryan))))))))))) - - > that's a cyber hug from my mama. We are both sending you human and puppy kisses, and pray that your passing is a peaceful one. I can't think of a better thing to do than sit in the sun - especially for us black dogs...it feels so good! I bet your humans are giving you lots of love as well.

You had me at Weinerblab.

Dear Scubee,

I just heard this from Fei as I have been away for awhile. I'm so very sorry to hear this. Mom and I are so very sad.

You have been truly loved for 25 months and that's more than a lifetime sometimes for rescues like us.

May you enjoy your time with you family Scubee and know that everyone of your friends loves you and prays for you.

Scubee may you look over us when you are gone and know that we will hold you forever in our hearts.

We love you so much and are so very sad.

Scubee,

We were visiting the Brat Pack and they told us about you. We are sorry we have missed the chance to get to know you because you sound like a wonderful friend. Your family has been made better by knowing you and you have given them lasting memories. None of us are promised forever but it's great that you got to spend this much of your life surrounded by love. You and your family are in our prayers.

CASPER AND PALS said...

We came over from Wally's blog. Momma has tears in her eyes, even though we have never met you. We hope you can rest easy and spend some time with Sara and Ryan in this next while. If they are sad tell them about the Rainbow Bridge. It is where all the animals go after their time here and are restored to being healthy and happy and can run and play again until one day again they see their special person who is also coming over the bridge to be reunited again.

Loves from Casper, Buddy, Nikki, and our momma

Toby said...

Hi Scubee,

I'm sad that we had not met before... You seem like a real cool guy. My Mommy and I are very sad to hear that you're not feeling well. (Mom actually has tears in her eyes as she types this for me). We hope you are spending lots of quality time with sara and ryan right now. You and your family are in our prayers.

you are a really awesome wiernerlab...why have i never seen your superior breed at the westminster show? too fabulous i think!

BLU and Comet said...

Scubee, I'm happy that you got to spend the last two years with loving people like Sara and Ryan. We never have enough time with the ones we love. My best friend Tequila died of cancer two years ago. Look for her on the other side of the rainbow bridge. She'll show you all the fun places to sniff and pee.

You don't know us but our Mommy heard you were sick from Reina's blog. Our Mom lost her little girl Samantha (a mimi dashie) to renal failure 2 years ago when she was almsot 15 years old. Samantha is the reason we are here...when she died our Mommy adopted one of us, another and then another from DROH. Now she fosters rescues too. We just want to say that you and every other rescued doggies are special and will always have a special spot in the hearts of all of us. Mommy says when you get to the rainbow bridge call out Samantha's name & she will come running and you, her and all the other beloved little ones can play and frolic pain free until we all meet again.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family....Mona, Jacks, Toby, Bradley (our little foster) & our Mom, Sarah too!!

God Bless & Keep You.

Scubee, I heard about you from Wally and came right over.

I don't know you, but it's obvious you have loved well! You let Ryan and Sarah love you up until you go, then run like the wind, buddy!

I will see you someday at that bridge or once we both cross over. Would you give some of you Scubee love to my sister, Rosie and brother, Bert? They're Airedales too and will totally LOVE you, man!

Your new Goober bud,

Hi ya Joshua Peacock (wonder why your folks changed you name *wink*), it’s Annette your first foster mom writing to you and sending love. I have been trying to write without much success for several days.
I was just looking at your baby pictures from your time here, and remembering all the fun we had. Sara and Ryan are the luckiest people to have shared their heart and home with you, as I did for a short time
I know I should not be crying as you have been a joy to all you have touched and brought so much to our lives, but I’m selfish and want you to stay with us
Please let your mom and Dad know if there is anything we can do we will be there in a flash…the ARC gang took it hard when we read your message
Thanks for being the special kid you are, and love to your family
With love

Hey Scubee, I heard about you from Reina and came right over. I am sorry I never met you before now but I am really sorry that you are sick. My older sister went to the Rainbow Bridge one time. Will you say hi to her for me? She was red dachshund. You'll know her when you see her.

I hope your peepol hold your paw.

Love and licks,

So when you are ready run free of pain.

Scubee, let Sara and Ryan know if there is any treats you would still enjoy. If there is, they can stop by or I will deliver them to you. And yes, that includes pupcakes.......as many as you want. We are presently setting up a "in memory of" page on our web site in preparation of our 16 & 17 year old boys and would like to include you. I have met your parents and you should see the smiles and joy in their expressions when they talk about you. You mean the world to them. Take care big guy and thank you for the smiles and laughter you have brought us when reading your blog.

Oh Scubees,

I wish I had met you earliers. You've crossed the Rainbow Bridge to a life of no pain. I like your attitude, “I have had a wonderful time“. That's what we all want to bark in the end. It was sooo wonderfuls that your sara and ryan were able to help you have a great time. I know it goes both ways and they will nevers forget the good times they had with you.

My humans' nephew's dog crossed the bridge last week. Maybe you'll see her soons.

Remembers the good times.

Scubee,

Although earth time is very short, once you get to the Rainbow Bridge, the time never ends, your pain goes away, you are young and happy and will have plenty of pups to play with (say Hi to Nikki and old guy-guy Nova for me).

Although your humans will be sad when you cross over, they'll join you eventually, to play and love fur-ever.
