Some of you know whats been going on with Slim. She has been having hip problems and we were planning on having her PTS for several months, but I just couldn't do it with just having to put down Stack this year. She was very ill bred and has had a number of health issues in her 4 years of life.

Well a few months ago Slim started loosing weight rapidly. We took her in and got some blood drawn and after they did there thing and tested it however they do they came back to tell us she had hypoglycemia. I was not to sure about that and did my research and she didn't really have the symptoms that go with that, but I was like ok maybe she just has it very mildly.

Things have been fine and she was gaining her weight back......

This morning she had a seizure. I have never dealt with seizures and most of what I know comes from talking with Tye about Penny.

Her seizure was mild at first, but then became severe so we got her in the back of the van and during the 5 min drive to the vet she died. Her temp was 107 when we got there and they say thats what did it was the fast temp increase. I asked if I shouldn't have moved her and they said no her temp would have done that anyway.

I have been prepared to loose Slim, but not this way......

RIP Pitts Blue Fire AKA Slim De da giminie

She wasn't the smartest or most coordinated dog, but she loved her family and loved her kids with all she had.

Oh Holly I have tears streaming dwn my face I can't hardly type, I am soooooo sorry. Words cannot express my sympathy for you. When Penny had those cluster seizures her temp had gotten to 105.8. Oh Slim you will be missed. Holly I am here as are the others of the forum, my heart and thoughts are with you and your family.

RIP Slim, Penny will greet you with open arms at the bridge.

I love that one too. She was so mothering to any animal I brought home. That was a calf I was raising and she would lay with it and clean it. She was so good to animals.

I just wish I would have had her PTS months ago when I should have and she would have never had to got through this.

Fish is going to be so upset. They don't know yet, she thinks Slim is out in the kennel (because thats were she would be right now, ot that I told her that)......Slim wasn't good at much, but kids was her thing. She just loved Fish from the day we got her and gave that same love to Noodle from the day she was born.

Holly I am very sorry for your loss you gave Slim the best life and all the love a dog could have hoped for and in return he loved you and your family. It's sad the strong bond we share with our animals never preparing ourselves to say goodbye to them one day especially when we don't see it coming. May Slim be smiling at the rainbow bridge waiting for his family to join him one day. God Bless .... RIP Slim :(

Oh Holly, from the sounds of it, Slim was good at everything that really matters.
Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures with us.

Oh no!!! Slim was a gorgeous animal and I always just thought she was so adorable :( Give your kids tons of hugs and kisses, i know it's hard to lose a dog they must be so sad already after just losing Stack. RIP Slim, I can't imagine going through what you are going through Holly! Sucks so bad.

Its sucks, but I was at least prepared to loose Slim. Like I said we had planned for some time now (like 6 months) to just have her PTS, but I keep making excuses and saying oh she ok, its not bad enough to have her PTS.. ect...

With Stack though it happened all of a sudden and we realized what was going on and had him PTS within like 3 days.

I'm so sorry Holly, I am tears right now. :( Especially after reading how much the girls loved her. Slim was a beautiful girl. Nanny dog is the best title a dog can have. :) Really makes me sad that Helena and her were the same age. RIP Slim

Thnx everyone. Her age bugs me so bad, with the issues shes had in such a short life. She has has non stop health issues from the day we got her and is a prime example of what happens when people put no care into what they breed. You have a great dog plagued with health problems that not only hurts the dogs, but the people whos family their apart of. I have spent more money on vet bills for Slim than all my other current dogs combine. She was only 4 and seemed to be 12 with the issues shes had.
