Goodbye sweet Mr. Nobbie



Howdy all,


Our Mr. Nobbie was put to sleep on Wednesday.....Our sweet little fur boy has no more pain...

...After three months of many vets....reiki...lotions and potions...
All the Kings Horses and All the Kings Men couldn't put poor Nobbie together again...

Nobbie rallied several times in the three months...He seemed to respond well to the Reiki....
but then became worse again....We were hoping the Reiki person was correct about her feeling that nobbie just has a bad tooth infection...but she was wrong....

He had a few nice days sitting outside here in North Carolina before getting sicker....His left eye filled with blood....He had some blood in his ear as well.

I could tell he couldn't see very well. He also had was in some pain ...I gave him arnica montana and that made him sleep....

Monday ..We went to another vet...a holistic one, who said he indeed had cancer... he also recently went blind...she felt he also had gastritis....and if he could rallied we could address what else was going on. We went home and I started the pill regime, feeding with a syringe and cleaning his eyes and ears....He was also in more pain...i would give him his remedy and it seemed he would feel better for a while. Wednesday I could tell nobbie had enough...he didn't want to take the pills and would gag them up...he was very disoriented....I knew it was time to say goodbye...

We took him to the vet Adele uses for her pets...She was very nice....she shaved nobbie where she was going to put the needle in and said his skin was not pink...that it was yellowish...which meant his system was shutting down....

He went to sleep very easily and we held him and kissed him goodbye...

I have to say that I am in many ways very relieved......it was very stressful taking care of this sick little furboy and seeing him in pain..... I miss my sweet little noblet.

Last night he came to visit me in my dreams and walked around the bed and rubbed his face on me.....

This past week has been a very sad one for Jeff and I and each day it is filled with tears....
I miss my Noblet and I miss My dear friend Patti....
They were both sweet souls....

oh man...such sad news that brings tears to my eyes. I know you guys are going through pain and an empty spot in your hearts. My friend Lynn just had to put her loving Sammy dog to sleep and she is having a real hard time with it. He was her little boy, just like your noblet.

Noblin Hob Goblin was truly the bravest of all the cowardly lions. He was a special little boy and a real trooper. We will miss our orange fur ball.

Oh Dawn, my heart aches for you and Jeff.
First Patti and now Nobbie. What a horrible week. Our collective solace is that now Patti has a new friend to share their next lives together. You can rest assured that Patti will take good care of the Nobster.

There is something I want to tell you. Patti was prepared to do a tribute to Nobbie when she heard that he was ill and collected some old photographs of him that we had.
Sadly, she left us before the Nobster. I feel frustrated that I do not have the talent and ablity to complete what she was intending to do. The Tribute you did for Patti beat her to the punch.
I am grateful that you and Patti were on the same wavelength re: doing thoughtful and incredible things for each other. You and Patti are really special people.
My heart aches for you my dear friend. Please accept my deepest and most sincere condolences.
When will the tears stop....

Wow, It is so hard to come here and not be full of tears this past week. We all know how you loved your Nobbin and how he was your baby. This had to be so difficult for you. I can feel your pain after losing Sparky recently and having Ping ill. Hugs and love going out to you and Jeffy from Joe and I.
