My baby is gone. Sudden heart failure this afternoon, after living through surgery #2, to repair a several inch diameter hole in his stomach. They did everything they could do, there was just too much damage. His stomach had been leaking into his abdominal cavity, which caused infection and a fever spike. They went in and fixed what they could with surgery this morning. We saw him briefly before he came out of the anesthesia, but were supposed to go back this afternoon when he was awake. The doctor called a couple of hours ago to tell us that he died in his sleep.

oh grace, i'm so sorry. he was a very special guy...i'm glad i had the chance to meet him.

omg, that is so terrible. i can't imagine anything in my life that would equal losing my dog. fwiw, it's clear that he had a great life. make sure you take all the time you need to deal with this. there is a good site called rainbowbridge (i think) that might be of some help. you are in my thoughts.

I am so sad to read your update about Chance. You gave him the best life he could have and he obviously loved you as much as you loved him from all of your stories. (Josie from Phoenix)

So sorry to hear this. Remember at least that you gave Chance a better life than he'd otherwise have had.

I'm so sorry, Grace - loosing a furbaby is so tough - my prayers are with you and Mark.

I'm so sorry, Grace. He looks like a lovely dog, and was obviously very loved.

Grace, I am so sorry. I know how much you guys loved him. Please tell mark how sorry I am and I hope you know all my love and hugs of symapthy are coming your way.

Grace, I'm so very sorry to hear about Chance.
