A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

On Sunday we lost Bentley to GDV. What an awful medical nightmare. On hour we are playing fetch next hour we are rushing him to the emergency vet. Then next hour we were home with just his collar. Bentley joined our family in June of this year. He was 8 year old happy active doodle who loved to play ball. We were blessed to have him in our pack. If you are not familiar with GDV please look it up and know the signs. Surgery is the only possible option but it is not a guarantee. Brodie and Harrison are a little down but with extra love we are sure they will be okay.
Hugs and slobbers
Harrison and Brodie

Kris so sorry to hear about Bentley.  Our hearts go out to you, BRodie and Harrison.  At least you all made him happy for his last month's on earth.  He's on the rainbow bridge.  May he RIP (Rest in Paradise)  At least he went fast and hopefully did not suffer.  I am not familiar with GDV, but will look it up.  Sincere sympathy from the Crouse House.

I am so very sorry to hear about Bentley.  My heart goes out to you.  My Gizmo (6 years old) has just been diagnosed with Acute Kidney Failure.  I totally feel your pain.  Hugs.

Kris I am deeply saddened by this news. To lose a precious pet is heartbreaking, especially so suddenly.
Know that there was nothing more you could have done. Our Elliott had GDV surgery when he was 2. Even after the surgery for 72 hours there is a risk that the dog's organs will cascade into failure. We know how lucky we were that he survived. But we also know the outcome was not in human hands. Please don't blame yourselves. You loved him and got him help quickly. So very sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear.  It's a terrible condition.  You had such a short time with Bentley but I'm sure you'll never forget him.

I am so very sorry to be reading this. Such heartbreaking news. It is likely little comfort, but you gave Bentley the experience of being a part of a wonderful loving family and that means a lot. I wish you peace in the many happy memories of the time you guys had together.
