Tigress our puppy was BURIED yesterday

Updated on June 11, 2014

Approximately about a month ago my aunt brought a puppy for my granny who is "eighty one years old" soon to be eighty two. At first the puppy was very noisy and irritating to me because she was near my bedroom window and barked all night long. I am not really an animal lover nor do i like dogs licking me or rubbing against me etc so it was easy to annoy me.

However this little puppy was different she was cute, feisty, playful, skillful and bad, LOL. My granny was fascinated by her, how she'd hold on to the broom bristles and rag it and won't let go , she would drag a concrete brick all by herself. Twice Tigress untied herself from the chain, she'd do flips and stunts jumping in and out of a card board box. Granny use to sit for an hour or more teasing her and enjoying watching her play.

She grew very attached to granny as she was her main entertainee, about one week ago June 5th 2014 my granny had to go to the hospital so she spent two nights by my mother. When i came home the Thursday evening from class i saw Tigress looking very sad and she would not even bark at me. I suspected she was missing granny and was just sad, immediately after i called her telling her the puppy was missing her.

Granny came home the next day and Tigress was still in the same condition she would not play with her or anything. She won't eat her food or drink water, then she started to vomit worms, she was given a worm out when she just came, but maybe she was infested with them. Tigress grew frail and unresponsive she'd just stare in space and lay down in one position and rarely move. Her symptoms worsen and she started to pass blood, we were told that she was to weak for the vet to give her a shot to help her. So on Tuesday morning when we woke up granny went outside to see if everything was okay with the dog.

She came back inside sad and said that the dog had died when i went to check she was lying down motionless with spots of blood on different parts of the ground. I was sad that this dog had died because it was granny's entertainment, this morning granny suffered two seizures and she keeps thinking about the dog.

Tigress we will miss you

you were only with us for a month

and now you're gone.

No more puppy barks

and playful sparks.

No more doggy flips

and showing off for us

to see. I won't see you

anymore when i open

the kitchen window or

come from work.

No more little fluffy tail

wagging and barking for

mangoes to suck. No

more crunching of your

dog chow.

Granny is sad that you left

her and she wailed like a baby

for you. Said it hurt her that

you die. She's looking for a

dog now but am sure it cannot

replace you.

You was unique, smart, tricky

and playful. We hope that your

in heaven now looking down at

us. Keep good until we meet again.

To Tigress with love.

      So sorry. Some dogs grab your attention despite everything in you that says I don't care for dogs. Seems like Tigress was one of those dogs.

      I do not have a dog/pet and, like you I do not favor them, but I could still feel the moving emotion when I read that. Tigress, your Granny and your family have my sorrow Joanna.

      That happened to me once Jo with a puppy I got from the pound and the Vet said what it is, is the puppies have worms when they are born from a wormy mother probably (I am assuming) and by the time they get any worm medicine they are so full of worms that the medicine rushes the worms up into their heart and kills them. Sometimes too much medicine for the size dog too. It is sad; I cried so hard over mine that was so tiny and I loved so much.

      I hope after she gets over it your granny gets a good one already wormed. Sounds like it would make her happy.
