    I canNOT wrap my mind around it...and I HATE thinking of how heart-broken the family is. I am just devastated for them. Kobi was one of "our" little super stars...beautiful, healthy, SO active, SOOO loved. It is absolutely shocking that "we" have lost that precious boy. It IS just SO unfair. Bless you, sweet, beautiful Kobi. Our hearts our with you, and Sarah, our hearts are absolutely with you. One thing is for sure...that baby had a SPECTACULAR life...he most certainly knew that he was one very loved baby boy. Damn it...there truly are just NO freaking words.

    Sarah, you and your family have my most sincere condolence.
    I think I know what you feel right now.
    A rush of emotions too numerous to list.

    This evening I burn this incense in honor of Kobi.
    It burns in the place it burned earlier this month for Kali.
    Where it burned for Daisy.
    Where it burns for any one or any creature significant to me.
    In the background, that greenery. It was only a sprig or two when Daisy was here.
    She was gone shortly after.
    I water it every day.
    Every time I see it I think of her.

    So, I burn the incence, from how ever many thousands of miles away I cry with your family.

    Somewhere, in doggy heaven, Kobi just met a firey red head Doberman. She will guide him.
    I know she will, because it means much to me that she does.

    Run free Kobi.

    A little piece of me died yesterday . I'm still in shock and my body feels numb :(

    Today was the day when I was supposed to bring him home. Instead of bringing him home I'm bringing home his collar. Why is life so cruel? I cannot believe it. I think I'm going to wake up from this nightmare and everything be ok....but no.

    And to think his recovery was going so well.

    I knew something was going on early yesterday morning. They took him out of the crate to come meet me and as he walked towards me blood drops appeared. on the floor. The nurse said "oh dear, looks like the stitching is bleeding!" I thought to myself...it's been 3 days from surgery. Hm! It didn't feel right.

    After that the vet said it was best to open him up and look at the intestines to see if there was any leakage (due to blood found in his abdomen)...the intestines were fusing brilliantly so they knew something more was going on.

    Now, my husband took the devastating news on the phone and I think he was so consumed with terror and shock he relayed the wrong information to me.

    What happened was, when they were inside him EVERYTHING they touched internally bled. When they opened his stomach he was full of blood......he bled out :(

    The kindest thing to do was to let him sleep...forever. There was no coming back from this. We had to make that awful decision to let him have his wings although our hearts weren't ready.

    I really don't know what to say at this time. I'm deeply deeply shocked and saddened. He gave us so much love and affection and he'll be sorely missed.

    I want to thank each and everyone of you for your love and support through this very difficult time. You have shown me, my family and my boy, Kobi so much love and support and I'll always remember your kindness towards us.

    @Gelcoater, your words touched my heart deeply. He'll find her, I know. Thank you Gel!

    Some day, in the future we will open our hearts and home to another but for now I'm going to hold onto those wonderful, sometimes crazy times we shared.

    This was my last, at home picture of Kobi....


    That gorgeous face will never leave me. He was loved more than life itself and we fought for him till the very bitter end. We couldn't of done anymore.

    I'll still be popping in and out of the forum and I consider DCF my family. I thank you all once again for your love and kind words xx

    Oh my gosh, I'm sat in the car at this very moment after writing my post to you all and suddenly on the radio a song is played...I cannot believe it. This song I sang to him in the car when we were out and about and I'm sure he thought "wha? Not again...she doesn't know the words and making any old crap up!" Lol I think I drove him mad with my crazy singing. Lol But it was our car song.

    The song is Despacito, it's a sign from him because my tears have just turned into smiles and laughs.

    Thank you boy! You are watching over me and that's all I ask of you xx

    Oh dear Sarah ..I just can't express how sorry I am for your loss of Kobi! I am crying too. It has been such a terrible year losing Flynn and now I feel that your loss is just as tragic and shocking. I know we are all just devastated for you. Run free Kobi, you will be missed.

    Can't help myself from tearing up, that face of his and his expressions I see Brinks every time. I know what you mean about wanting to wake up from a nightmare, none of it seems real. Even to us it doesn't.

    We love you and your sweetest boy.

    Omg, I sit here sobbing so hard for you!! I feel so bad about losing Kobi. He and your family are a big part of this Forum and he will be sorely missed!!!

    I am soooooo glad that you got a sign from him!! And believe it, it is a sign! I am a big believer in the afterlife and signs we get from loved ones that have passed. This was wonderful and certainly comforting!! God bless that boy! He knows you are suffering and wants you to know he is ever near. :love:

    My heart breaks for Sarah and her family. Sitting here in tears reading this as I had just updated myself on his other thread. There is nothing to take away the pain from such a loss. I know words of sympathy from others go in one ear and out the other as you sit there in disbelief.

    Sarah, please know I am praying for you and your family. I hope you find peace in knowing that Kobi now runs with the angels and watches over you all from above. You did all you could for him. If only love could save them.
    Run free and swift sweet boy.....

    We are here for you when you are ready.

    This feels like losing my own Tobie all over again... the hardest part was his incessant and irrational happiness that radiated at all times and that it was suddenly gone - no wagging nub when I came home; no content sigh when we curled up on the couch in the evening; no giant welcoming head when I woke up in the morning. I saw that in Kobi, too. I am not a person of faith but I can't believe there isn't a happy place for dogs to run around and continue to enjoy life after they've passed - there is too much good in them. Tobes still watches over us from atop a shelf and I can tell when Rubie get's a sniff of his scent when one of his old toys or blankets pop up. I'm so glad Kobi lives on through pictures, video's and stories you've shared on this site with us.

    This has me in tears, I cry for your loss and the loss of an amazing Doberman.
    Please give your family a hug from me and my pack. I am so incredibly and terribly sorry.
