Dog is horribly sick

Our one year old Great Dane Roxy is horribly sick.  Two days ago she went to the vet to get spayed and stomach tacked and when we picked her up today she could not walk.  She laid around the house and didn't eat.  Finally my dad took her to the vet and he called, crying, saying that she is in critical condition and the next 12 hours will determine if she will live or die.

Please, God, don't let her die.  She is the most loving, playful, funny dog in the world and we love her so much.  Maybe that is why you want her in Heaven with you, but we don't, at least not right now.  She is our ray of sunshine in the darkest days.  She is fighting to live and we do not want to lose her.  Please, God, she is a wonderful dog and I don't want her to die...

Roxy died three hours after I wrote my prayer request.  I am angry with God.  Why does He let the most horrible, mean dogs live for years and years but not Roxy?  My Dad is so sad.  We have cried until we can not cry anymore and then we cried some more.  She only lived for one year and five days, and we only had her for ten months.  Why did he let her die?  Why?  Why?  Why?

I am so sorry for the loss of your dog. I know you and your dad loved her very much. Please do not be mad at God for this terrible situation. Unfortunatly we all live in sin.  Death is a result of sin.  God loves you so much He sent Jesus Christ to die in YOUR place.  I pray that you know that God weeps with you in your loss. He created your dog Roxy.  I pray for your sorrow and your loss. I pray that you will be comforted in His love for you.  God brought Roxy into your life and that brought joy to you and happiness to Roxy. May you live with his memory close to your heart, and know that God is there to help you thru this situation.
