I know I rarely post on the actual forum anymore now that we have the Chaz Facebook group. For those that aren't friends with me on FB or in the FB group...

I lost my sweet young Xolo boy, Itztli, on December 17. He was only a year and a half. According to the vet his kidneys were under developed and really small. I took him to the emergency vet because we had been treating him for a yeast infection and what my vet thought was leaky gut. He had starting having shakey tremors which was very odd so we went to the emergency vet where they diagnosed him in late stages of kidney failure. That was on a Tuesday. He failed so fast that by Thursday he couldn't stand up to walk, he had ulcers in his mouth that had quadrupled from Tuesday. We had him on fluids and Chinese herbs and had tried a couple other things such as acupuncture and ozone treatment. Thursday, December 17 I made the hardest decision I have ever had to make. I said goodbye to one of my best friends. I miss him terribly. I've recently lost two human friends as well in the past month and I'm taking the loss of my dog so much harder.

Run free my sweet sweet boy.

Oh no! I too lost one to sudden kidney failure and I know how quickly it can happen. Please take care of yourself during this time.

Thank you so much. It's been a really difficult time and a really heartbreaking Christmas season. I had so many big plans with this boy... So many adventures ahead of us. My heart is literally shattered. I will definitely be getting another Xolo when I'm ready, but right now I'm just hurting. This is the first time I have ever had to make the difficult decision to euthanize a dog and to have it be such a young dog... I just can't. I stayed by his side through to the very end and after he was gone it took about 20 minutes for my husband to finally pull me off of him. I couldn't bring myself to let him go.

I still keep looking for him at home. I've accidentally made him dinner a couple times. I keep hoping to wake up from this awful nightmare.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Losing a dog is always hard, but I can't even imagine losing one so young. Take care of yourself - you guys are in my thoughts :(

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I lost one years ago unexpectedly due to kidney failure. It's so heartbreaking. Hugs to you.
