Bella is a Great Dane. She would have been 7 in December. I am so lost with out her my heart breaks and can not stop thinking of her the pain is unreal I need to be at peace with this. I have gone many hours searching of why this happen or what it was that caused her to die. Bella was a active Great Dane she had a half sister she died at the age of 5 we had to put her down she was unable to walk and she lost so much weight she was very ill my heart breaks from that as well. Bella loved her sister and they were always together we never seen Bella grieve from sassy's death so we just thought with our support she would e fine which it seemed she was. she continued her everyday living not different we work so she was alone but she always had our attention she would lay on the couch and beds with us my kids loved her she would run around the house and just leave chasing the kids as they would jump in the pool Bella was a healthy great Dane which is why i am on here trying to get answers. Bella was up to date on shots. I noticed about a month or less ago that she looked like she was getting thinner i was unsure because it was a slow weight loss then it sounded as she would cough it was loud like she was clearing her throat or something she did that on and off for a month which i thought it was nothing it happen the most in the evening and usually after she ate or just out of the blue. she started eating less and still was drinking my husband and i came home from work as usual let he in from outside and we fed her like usual nothing was different however she started that coughing and then seemed like she was trying to vomit so we put her out side and then she came back in and kept repeating it for like an hour So she finally laid on the floor with feet out in front head up nothing different but she was in a spot where she would never lay it was behind the recliner so i went up to her and covered her with a blanket and rubbed her and talked to her and my husband and i discussed she needed to go to the vet the next day. She then got up and laid in another spot then we all went to bed we just thought she was sick she wasn't crying or showing any type of pain we just thought she was under the weather. I hate myself for going to bed that night and not staying with her. My husband woke me up at 2am and told me she had passed during the night. I am so heart broken I feel this is my fault she should have taken her somewhere that night it just didn't seem like it was an emergency at the time but she was dead beside the bed on a blanket her rib cage seem extended. she just looked like she was sleeping but she was stiff and was not moving we have 3 kids and both work we didn't have the money to find out what caused her death we buried her at 2:30am next to her sister. This is heart breaking I hate this pain I cant stop thinking was when she was pacing around in the bedroom was she trying to get our attention for help we just told her to lay down :( we didn't think anything. Did she go fast was she in a silent pain was she scared so many things are tormenting me and I am so lost with out her it hasn't been a year sense sassy our other Dane got put down. This is just really hard she was more then just a dog she was our baby and our family. I am looking for any kind of advice thoughts. Thanks everyone I am lost.
