As you can tell, this post is about the death of someone. It was someone very close to me, and I loved him like a brother, even though he was a dog. I grew up with him, and he lived much longer than we thought he would. He had a dangerous tumor that had been growing in his throat for a few years now, and by his death it had reached his heart and lungs as well. He was given a month to live 3 months ago, which we took as a godsend. He was a lively dog up until his death and his health had begun to look like it was improving.
He died on December 5th of this year, and it had nothing to do with his tumor. In the end, he died of a twisted stomach, which apparently is something that happens to older dogs right out of the blue. He had begun bloating instantly from the gases that were building in his stomach, and we learned that it was either a very expensive surgery that most likely wouldn't work due to his health, or the fact that we would have to put him down. We figured that the surgery was selfish, because he would be suffering for the rest of his life.
We then said our goodbyes in the garage, and needless to say, I cried.A lot. He was my first dog and I'd had him since i was a little baby. I grew up with him and the thought of going through one day without him was a troubling thought. We then loaded him into the back of the truck, as my father drove off with him, headed for the animal hospital. After waiting two hours for my father to return, the garage door opened and I heard a jingling of a collar. My heart jumped a beat, thinking that he was ok, and was still alive, but to my dismay, it was just my father bringing the collar back home. This even opened up a new round of tears, as we sat on the couch crying.
I know I will compare all my pets and all animals to him, because he was my first and best dog ever, and he will be missed.
