The Hardest Blog Post To Write

This has been a really hard week for me.

As I’ve posted a few times before, my dog hasn’t been doing well. She had been having seizures off and on for the past six months or so. We had her since she was a puppy, for 15 years. Even though my family and I knew the day would come when she would pass on to heaven, it didn’t make it much easier when it actually happened.

After an excruciatingly hard exam on Monday night, I did what I usually do when I come home… had dinner, talked with parents, gave my dog a big hug and held her for a few minutes, then checked stuff related to work and school online while watching a little TV.

Well, not too long after I went upstairs I heard my dad calling me saying our dog died.

I flew down the stairs and was in shock. We cried, held her for a last time, said goodbye, etc. It is a bit of a blur and honestly too hard to think about again so soon.

I’ll try to write more again, maybe next week. I have a couple reviews I have ready to post later this week, which I hope to get up, if not I hope everyone understands that I just really am going through the motions of everything right now.

:( So sad when they go. At least you didn't have to be the one to make the decision and she went on her own time.

I am very, very sorry about your dog passing. It is like losing your best friend, your sibling, your safe place. All i know is that each of mine has left me to go on to their rest and make room for another rescue animal to be able to come to their forever home. Do I miss them any less, no. I get a lot from my current kids but I miss each that has gone on and I will remember them as long as I am able.
