Duke has gone to play

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I would like to thank everyone for their thought and prayers.

Duke fell sick on Sunday June 24 and passed away Thursday June 28 at 2:23 am. His liver was failing his lungs were filling with fluid and his breathing was very labored. He stopped struggling to breath in my arms on my bed and with my mother and I petting him and Sibohan looking on. He was not in pain for long but the pain for my family is immense.
We buried Duke at the place he loved the best, My parents backyard. Where he is able to watch all the birds chirp at all the squirls and chipmunks he wants to and play with Sam(cat), Storm(dog) and Buffy(dog).
Sibohan has been looking for him all morning and is beside herself running from room to room looking for him. I'm looking for him too... it seems so unreal. He got sick overnight (he was fine on Saturday) and now he's gone. Duke was 5 and a half years old.

So, so sorry to hear this.

Play happily over the Bridge, sweet fella, and remember to hold your family tight while they try to get used to you not being physically with them. You'll never leave them, but it does take a while to grasp and hold onto that.

RIP sweet Duke

I'm so sorry

Duke was far to young to leave for his journey across Rainbow Bridge, but he'll be well loved and cared for by all his new friends that are waiting to take him to his new home

Run fast across the bridge Duke, but keep looking down on those who loved you so much because their hearts are breaking right now

I'm so very sorry for your deep loss.

Explain to Sibohan what happened to him. They understand much more than we give them credit for. She will grieve for him too, right along with you.

Play well at the Bridge, Duke. You are so very loved, and that light and warmth will surround you forever.

Oh I am beyond sorry honey! I saw this & my heart just sank. He died in your arms, surrounded by those who loved him.

Play happily over the rainbow bridge Duke!

I'm so very sorry that your beautiful Duke has crossed the bridge. I know how hard it is to say goodbye. I'm glad that you were there with him, and that his final moments were surrounded by the love of his family.

Play happy and free over the bridge, sweet Duke.

i really know just how you feel - Mouse was here & got sick so suddenly, too... Duke, look for my Mouse - she was only a year & a half older than you, so y'all are compatriots!
Sibohan2005 - i can't remember your real name but i have some for you... talk to Sibohan [the kitty] - i know she was there at his passing, but talk to her about it anyway. explain to her what happened. i found that Pixel did much better after i told her about Mouse. you need more of these...

I'm so sorry that you lost Duke - and he was so young too! I'm happy for him that he had you at least while he was here. Hugs for you and Sibohan. RIP Duke - and look for little Smudgie at the Bridge. He was only here for 5 months.
