Earlier this week, Gretchen Fullido posted on her Instagram account requesting for prayers for her senior dog Doogie who suddenly had to be rushed to the vet clinic and confined after suffering continuous seizures. An animal lover at heart, Gretchen shares how her 13-year-old furbaby is more than just a pet to her and her family. On August 8, the TV Patrol reporter shared that Doogie had passed away on August 7 before she left for work.

She wrote:
“Doogie is in heaven now   🏼  This is our last moment before Doogie passed away. You know your dog really loves you when they time their last goodbye  

Wednesday morning, Doogie was still stable but after lunch he suddenly became really weak & had diarrhea.

I kept telling him to please sleep & rest na & that he doesn’t need to worry about me anymore… so please let go na, Doogie (while stroking his head and tiny body)
but ang tagal pa... we had a good hour together on the floor because his temperature was dropping & the heating pad was on the floor.

I checked Waze to see how traffic it will be driving from Taguig to QC, I was computing what time I should leave the vet’s because I really want to spend as much time as I can with Doogie thinking I might not see him alive when I get back after work.

As my time of departure was nearing, Doogie suddenly had a seizure, a really bad one. He was stiffening up & his eyes looked like he was in pain but he couldn’t move that much at that point. I kept telling him, ‘Doogie, please let go na… rest na my love… mommy will be ok…’ Doc Racky then gave him a mild sedative just to calm the seizure and it did, but when we checked his reflexes (his eyes had no movement) but he was still breathing. Doc Racky said, Doogie is already in a coma… & 30 minutes after, he passed away at 4:11pm.

Can you imagine how selfless Doogie was? He sped up his passing knowing that I might be late for work or miss TV Patrol & Doogie wouldn’t want that  

The drive to work was difficult I was crying and crying. I had to compartmentalize my emotions and went live for Star Patrol. After work, I rushed back to pick up Doogie’s body which was in a box  

As we got home, I opened the box & cut some of his hair for me to keep. His lifeless body was so cold and hard but his face looks peaceful. He’s now in heaven running free & happy. Doogie is finally reunited with his mommy Honey Juju (who died 3 days after she gave birth to Doogie) Pepper, Fifi, Duke & all our other doggie babies   🏼 Born on September 21, 2006. Doogie was suppose to celebrate his 13th birthday next month. Thank you all so much for your love & prayers for Doogie. God bless you all!   🏼”

You just don’t know how happy I am to see you, Doogie πŸ˜’πŸ™πŸΌ When I visited him, he mustered his strength so he could stand (even if he was off balance) and cuddle. Such a priceless moment when he leaned his head to my face as I kissed & cuddled him. . I know you still have a long way to go with your recovery & you’d have to stay confined at the vet so they can give you all the medical attention to make you strong again and to make sure that you don’t have any more seizures. . But I’m so thankful that you’re still alive and fighting. If it is indeed your kidneys that have a problem, we will find a way to give you the best medicine so you can have the best quality of life. I wish I could stop time so we can stop your aging process. Can’t believe we’ve had 13 awesome years together! You’ve brought nothing but love & happiness to me and everyone who had the chance to meet you. . I pray that God still extends your life here on earth, I hope that doesn’t sound too selfish of me, but I trust the Lord’s plan. I need to accept that when the time comes, you will have to go to doggie heaven... but for now, please stay with mommy as long as you can. πŸ™πŸΌ I love you so so much. . Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes for Doogie. He is fighting and I know that his supernatural strength is from all of your prayers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. πŸ’œ . Will update you again on Doogie’s condition on my next visit. Please continue praying for Doogie. πŸ™πŸΌ

Thank you for all your prayers πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ I just finished my coverage for TV Patrol & will be checking up on Doogie in a bit. He’s still confined at the vet. It was so hard to leave him yesterday but I know it was for the best. At least he’s hooked up on IV dextrose & closely monitored with all the machines and medicines readily available. If only I could sleep there just to watch over him, I would. 😒 I didn’t get to sleep last night praying and thinking about him πŸ˜“ Nakaka-stress talaga when our babies are sick... even if you don’t want to worry, it’s really really hard not to. But I trust the Lord’s plan for Doogie. Will update you later on how he is. Please include him in your prayers πŸ™πŸΌ Thank you all soooo much πŸ’œ Just want to share Doogie’s photo yesterday before I left him. He briefly woke up after he was given a sedative to calm him down and stop the seizures. He looks like he’s smiling. Grabe ka Doogie! Ang cute cute mo pa rin even if your life was in critical condition. πŸ™ˆ I love you so much and I can’t wait to kiss you & hug you. Be strong my baby πŸ˜’πŸ’œπŸ™πŸΌ . Your 13th birthday is next month na, September 21 (Martial Law) We’re going to celebrate your 13th birthday so please get well na, my Doogie baby πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

Asking for prayers for my 13 year old Yorkie baby “Doogie” πŸ™πŸΌ Doogie woke up beside me, we had quick cuddles in bed and I brought him out so he can eat his first meal. When I came back a few minutes, I saw him struggling & crying. He was helpless & having a seizure attack on the floor. I immediately gave him Dextrose powder because in the past, he would have seizures because of hypoglycemia. But this time it was different. The seizures didn’t stop & he was crying & crying like he was in pain. So I rushed him to the vet, the seizures still wouldn’t stop even if they had injected him with IV dextrose to rehydrate him. We did some blood tests, blood chem & other tests to see what was causing the seizures. I stayed with Doogie, cuddled him & made sure he was getting lots of oxygen. For his age, his test results were actually good except for his Hemoglobin & we’re still doing more tests for his Kidney. Other than that, most of the other results came out ok (Praise God πŸ™πŸΌ) but his seizures still won’t stop... his arms, legs & head were stiffening up non stop, it was like he was paddling (like in swimming) but there was no water πŸ˜” They had to give him a mild sedative to calm him down.... but you could see that he was still twitching... I kept kissing him, cuddling him (he’s so tiny so it was really hard to embrace him but we made it work while I was still holding the oxygen for his nose & mouth) & I would sing songs to him, we already had a heart to heart talk which brought me to tears 😭😭😭 I lifted & surrendered Doogie to the Lord, & if God still heals Doogie & gives him an extension in his life, that would be such a miracle. I’m hoping & praying for a miracle but I’m also preparing for the worst. I trust in the Lord’s plan. Thy will be done. I hope you could say a little prayer for my Doogie baby. Thank you everyone πŸ˜’πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’” Doogie is currently confined now so they can constantly monitor him. I will visit him tomorrow. Can’t stop thinking about him. Thank you doc Anj, @docracky & to the ever reliable staff of Mount Sainai vet clinic for always giving your best for my babies and to other pets who go to your clinic. God bless you all πŸ™πŸΌ
