My beautiful great dane Loki died on Friday January 4/13. He had'nt been eating that well and while examining him, I noticed he had a large abcess on his canine tooth. I consulted with my vet and we booked surgury for Friday morning, I took the day off work so I could be with Loki as soon as possible. Loki was 5 years old, 190 pounds of the sweetest disposition you could ever imagine. A true gentle giant. Loki loved all other animals and loved children. He was constantly by my side and was a true and trusted friend. I received a call from my vet around noon, telling me I had to attend the office asap, they wouldnt tell me why. As soon as I walked in the door, I said tell me my baby is okay and the vet shook his head. It was the most surreal feeling I have ever had. I laid on his dead body for a very long time just stroking his still warm body, wishing to god that his big heart was still beating, but it was'nt.
