When I found the Over the Rainbow Bridge postings, it immediately brought tears to my eyes.
My baby boy Bentley died on January 11, 2005. I know that may seem like a long time ago to some of you, but to me it will never fade away. I woke up in the morning to get ready for work and let him out of his kennel. He was having convulsions and began bumping into walls. I carried him out to the lawn cause I thought maybe he had to potty ( I know now how ridiculous this sounds). I didn't realize the severity of the situation. I was bawling as I was driving in rush hour traffic to my dad's with poor Bentley in my lap. My vet is at least forty minutes away from my house because I don't trust anyone with my animals. So I went to my dad's because I knew I couldn't drive there alone. He called the vet to tell them we were on our way. By the time we made it to the vet, Bentley had already passed on in my arms. I just sat there holding him not believing that this was happening. Everything had been fine with him. He was a brilliant, energetic, playful boy.
He died when he was 7 MONTHS old. It was the last thing I ever would have expected.
The vet did an e-cropsy on him but it is still unknown what ended up killing him.
