It has taken me several days to work up the strength to make this post, but our little Katie passed away last week. It was sudden and we are still in shock. She was not even sick… that we were aware of. Only last month we took her to the Internist to have a very thorough check-up done. It included a full blood panel and ultrasound. The bloodwork was basically fine and the ultrasound indicated a little pancreatitis. For the past month she has been playing and eating normally. Last Thursday she began to act a bit lethargic and we took her to the vet. Blood work was drawn and it was INCREDIBLE what had happened in only a month! She needed an immediate blood transfusion in order to live! Her values were barely compatible with life! They indicated a severe blood loss although there WAS NO BLEEDING ANYWHERE. They did a quick xray and saw nothing! Somehow her body was eating up her blood cells. We rushed her to the Emergency vet. Dog Donor blood had to be used because they didn’t have her type on hand. Her labs also indicated liver damage had happened in the last month… but HOW??? We needed to transfer her care over to her Internist, but FIRST she had to get the blood. It would take 3 hours to complete. We were told to go home and come back first thing in the morning when the Internist’s office opened to pick her up and take her over there. I was on my way there… 1 minute from there… and she had a heart attack. They performed CPR and she didn’t make it. Katie was just gone. We don’t know what happened. Maybe a blood clot. We don’t know what was even wrong with her because the Internist never had a chance to examine her. One month ago she was fine and now she is just gone. I am still in shock and just can’t stop crying. I will never have any answers as to what happened. My little Katie is gone.
We will miss little Katie sending prayers to you 🙁

Dear Darsey, Millie and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss of your sweet little Katie!
I know how you feel and that you can’t understand WHY. Lost my little Trixie last year and her twin brother Tyke in June this year.
Sending you love, kisses and hugs from Germany.

Omgosh! I’m sorry very sorry to hear this about Katie passing. I got the pleasure to actually meet her along with the rest of the Mitchell family in 2016 at Hershey Park. Sending thoughts, prayers and hugs for everyone.🙏 🐾🐾💋
So sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Katie. I understand what you are going through. We lost our dog Freckles five years ago on October 8, 2016. It was a sudden passing as well. He went into shock from a tumor in his spleen that had ruptured and was bleeding into his stomach. The emergency vet hospital was going to do surgery to save him but he went into cardiac arrest and didn’t make it. My husband and I were devastated. It was so sudden and unexpected. He was only ten.
So very sorry for your loss. I will cherish the visit I had with all of you. She was so loved and will be missed
So very sorry💙🙏🐾💙🙏🐾
I’m so sorry for your loss
Oh I am heartbroken with you all. My deepest condolences. It’s so hard and to lose her so fast. Although I’m glad she didn’t suffer. I’m sure her sisters are bereft. I’m sending my love and hugs to Mummy, Daddy, and her sissies.

I am heartbroken for the loss of Katie Scarlett, and my deepest sympathy to all of you. It is always hardest when illness comes out of nowhere, and before we know it, our precious loved ones are gone. I am so very sorry. Praying.
I’m so sorry. Katie was a sweet little dog. She was a part of your family and you will always miss her but little by little it will get better.
Always so heartbreaking to lose them, even worse when it happens overnight and is unexplainable. I am so very sorry for your loss, the other girls must be in shock as well. Hugs to all of you.
