My Baby Girl

by Nicole

My beautiful German shepherd, Dutchess, passed away a few days ago (7/20/16) at the age of 10. She had suffered from Bloat. I did everything in my power to save her life within the hour she had suffered tremendously.

Dutchess died in my car as soon as I pulled up to the animal hospital. Guilt swept over me. I blame myself for not keeping her alive. I was angry, upset, and hurt.

As traumatic as the experience was for me and her, I was glad I was the one to be with her in her final moments. She knew that I had loved her so much and did everything I could for her.
