My puppy is throwing up :( UPDATE Molly died. - Page 2

I saw you question. It looks as if she came to the feedstore already sick. There she was wormed and vaxed for Parvo, which made it worse.

I need suggestions for helping my 6 yo deal with this.

I am so sorry! It is very hard to pull pups thru parvo. When they are so small, they have little resources in reserve so a tough illness like parvo can take them fast. You did what you could!

My dd is almost 4 and we just lost our dog to cancer. She was almost 10 and was a part of our life since dd was born. Our dd really took it well but at her age, I don't think they quite get the permanance of death. My dd didn't have the emotional reaction I thought she might. She was very matter of fact about it all with no saddness apparent at the time. She was sad the next day and talked of not liking it when dogs she loved die.

I think it helped that dh and I explained that her body would return back to the earth and nourish the plants. We too buried her in the back yard and have plans for a memorial tree. I think explaining that helps her to see how we live on. We also talked about how people and animals live on in our hearts through our memories.

Maybe when the tenderness of this loss has passed a little, you can consider getting another puppy. One of the same breed may be what your dd wants or she may want something totally different so it doesn't remind her about the loss of your little Molly.

Again, I am so sorry for you all.

I'm so very sorry to hear about your pup. My thoughts are with you, I know even after a week it's hard to lose a puppy--we had ours for about 10 days and it was very difficult.

My DD was about 5 when we lost our puppy, and it just took a lot of repetition of "sometimes living things get very sick, and when they die they don't hurt anymore". Lots of "well, will you get sick and die?" questions from her, but she seemed to deal with it in her own time.

I often come back to this poem (from the aforeposted website) when remembering a beloved furry one....

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
