Oh, believe me I KNOW! Many people could not understand why I was "carrying on" over a dog. These people just don't know what it is like. Also, I truly feel their hearts are very small. It is a shame that they can't know what unconditional love is all about. I TRULY UNDERSTAND...and I am going through it with you...as all of us on this site are...
I also want to say that there really isn't anything they could do for renal failure. There is no cure. There are some meds and a serious change in diet for the dog and it may have prolonged his life. However, it would have gotten him anyway. So do not feel that there was anything you could have done to prevent it, because you couldn't. You dog lived a full life and a healthy one and didn't have to suffer so take peace in that. You were a great mom to your dog and cared deeply for him. Believe me,he knew that.
Believe me, you did everything that you could in the little time that you knew that he was ill. People cannot always "be there" but it doesn't mean we don't love them with our whole hearts. I am sure your baby knew just how you felt. They definitely can feel our love without any words.
