Nothing can’t really describe how painful I feel right now.. I can’t function well nor think straight. I was pretty excited to travel with my dog Leia few days ago. The day before yesterday, we arrived to Washington D.C. My dad came to the airport after his work as the airport was almost right next to his work. Leia was excited to see my dad ; she licked him and wiggle her short tail… we had a short ride home however while my dad was driving, Leia went on his lap and looked at him for 5 mins non stop. I thought that was so adorable…which I should have took a picture but I was pretty exhausted from long plane ride.
My parents have another Yorkie name Chewy – we were so excited to introduce Leia to Chewy. They haven’t met each other as I adopted Leia when I moved to California. Leia was chasing Chewy barking and barking. I’ve never seen her barking that crazy but we’d thought that she will eventually stop.
It continued for another two hours so we separated them. As soon as we separated two dogs, I saw Leia was breathing very very hard so I called her to hold her and pet her… She couldn’t walk straight and suddenly she fall.. seemed like she couldn’t use her leg or her own strength to stand up. I was scared. After 5 mins of massaging her body, I’ve notice that she doesn’t seem right.
So I called my parents that we need to go to the vet asap. We were in the car, heading to the nearest vet. But I felt she stop breathing. Her heart was stop beating. But her muscles were still twitching so I thought we might have chance to save her.. but too late. Her legs were already hardened.. I crashed. We tried CPR at the vet but we had no luck. I couldn’t think anything but her and memories we had together.
I never thought of seeing my healthy dog dying in front of me just like that. She was my everything. She was the first dog I’ve ever taken care of since puppy stage. She was my only friend when I first moved to California. She was my family and my little baby. I cried and cried, tears after tears. I took here with me here because I wanted to make her happy. Playing with other dog was her favorite so I thought she might enjoy being with Chewy. But everything happened in 2 hours of arrival at home. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat.
We buried her in the backyard next to the flower tree that night after we came back from the vet. wishing her to be re born as a beautiful flowers. I was so sad and i am still. I can’t even take her with me when i go back to CA. I put her favorite toys in the box for her to play when she goes to the doggy heaven. My boyfriend called me and said only the good die young. She was pure and adorable.
Now in the back yard, there’s a pink flower bloomed… I believe Leia went to a good place. I love you Leia. I will always love you in my heart and will never forget every moment we had together. Love you my little baby.3
