from the heart of Robbin and Cody
December 20th, 2020 - the day my heart was ripped out my chest.
My pride and joy left this earth at 5:46pm in Cody Lott’s arms. Last Wednesday Ryder started throwing up. We took him to the vet... they gave him an injection for nausea and sent us home. Two days later Ryder still wouldn’t eat. Took him back. After x-rays and other tests, it was decided Ryder would have a pretty common surgery to remove his blockage in his large intestine (reasoning he wasn’t eating). Surgery went great and we got Ryder back Saturday night. He was to be healed up right after Christmas. However, our little man developed an untreatable blood clot. We didn’t even have him back for 24 hours before he was gone. And during that 24 hours was the hardest thing for a dog mom to experience. He cried and cried in pain and I couldn’t do anything to help him... We took turns sleeping on the floor with him to let him know we were there. I know he’s not in pain anymore, but I can’t help but be selfish and want him home.
I’m heartbroken. My best friend and little helper for everything is gone. Cody and I don’t know how to function in this home without him.
I’m angry. He was so healthy and happy. And we still have to pay back the vet bill for his surgery.
I’m just so broken. This sweet sweet boy brought me so much joy. He was our child. He was our first. He made our hearts full and our family happy.
Ryder please know we absolutely love you and did everything we could for you. We miss you deeply. Our pride and joy. Our little Wiggle butt.
So.. let’s try to raise money so that this healing
process can begin and not be reminded every month when this payment is due
