Oh, Littlefoot, I am so sorry to hear this. I cannot imagine your pain but Blover is right, you gave Shame a fantastic week and you were with her every step of the way through her ordeal. You showed her love when she needed it most. :sad:

Wow, that's horrible news. Sometimes there's no explanation at all, but I hope you get one that puts your mind at rest. Poor Shame, R.I.P. :frown:

It could have been a reaction to the anestetic or the drug used to counteract it.

I'm sorry for your loss, but she had a great last week of life thanks to you.

Littlefoot, I am very sorry to hear what happened. It must have been a very sad sad day. There are a number of things that could have caused her death and they don't nec. need to be assoc. with her spay. Please let us know what the necropsy shows!

Im so sorry. :sad: Don't beat yourself up. Daisy didn't eat for the first three days almost with me and continued to barely eat for a couple of weeks after that. Dogs do this, new homes are stressful. You gave her a shot which was more than she was going to get. You did what you could and whatever happened was before you even got her. Keep your chin up for the other pups. :\ It wasn't your fault. If anyone could have/should have noticed it was the vet.

Littlefoot, please remember that YOU cared about this lovely girl. YOU did, no one else. You gave her friends (human and canine) and warmth and love for 1 week, I'm sure that is more than she's ever known. You did your best - this was not your fault. :frown: I hope you feel better soon, I really do.

I agree with the others. Don't blame yourself, you did what you could for Shame. Gave her a chance. It's a horrible tragedy and in my opinion the shelter should have noticed her illness. It is not your fault.

<----agrees with everyone else.

I'm so sorry. I remember when Molly got spayed...we let her outside. She had be pretty lethargic the previous day and all day that day, but all of a sudden she got a 20 second spaz attack and ran to the dirt and rolled all around in it. Some of it got in her incision and she got a little infection, and I felt SO bad. But this was MY fault. Shame wasn't your fault...I can't imagine how you feel right now, but I sincerely hope you realize it wasn't your fault.

that's so awful, but it is sooo NOT your fault. poor shame. it's so hard to know what is going on with dogs, especially ones that are stoic and don't show their pain or problems.

you did right by her and i'm sure she appreciated the love and attention you gave her during her last week.
