Oh man, I just saw this Littlefoot...

I'm so sorry, I don't know what else to say, but I know you must feel horrible...

I agree with everyone else too, don't beat yourself up. If anything, be proud that you were the only one there trying to give her a second chance at life... There's no way you could've known she wasn't eating because she was sick - If anyone should've noticed, it should've been the vet or shelter staff.

I can't imagine how you must feel - Just know you did everything you could for her, and it is NOT your fault.

Again, I'm so sorry... :((

Rest in Peace, Shame...

I am very sorry for your loss, Littlefoot. RIP Shame.

I know this will probably not help but I didn't see it in any of the other posts and I wanted to add that you WOULD have noticed if you had her for longer and knew her schedule and her behaviors. You and she were new to each other and you did not know what to expect as her "normal" versus her acclimating to a new situation. Unless you were a mind reader her behaviors/symptoms are very acceptable when a dog moves into a new home.

Again I am very sorry for your loss. Please don't blame yourself.

LOL If I kept every dog I loved...I would have never given any of my rescue/foster kids away. LOL But I know what you are saying. When the time comes, and if the right home comes along for him...I will do what I believe is best for him, and him alone.

yeah i agree when it comes down to it you have to do what is best for the dog, but it does look like he has a great life as it is. :))

I'm very sorry to read this....

But it is not your fault. The shelter should have noticed her not eating and not going to the bathroom, they should have seen this! You took her out and gave her a chance, and gave her love, she had a good week with you, there is no way you could have known nor prevented this tragedy.
