I'm so Scared

My little dog is getting old. He's at least 13 years old. I have no idea how old he was when I addopted him. He has some problems and is going to the vet tomorrow. I'm so scared.

If you have a pet, you know what this is like. You wonder if this is that time you have dreaded for so very long, and you hope with all your heart that it isn't.

If I don't post for a few days, please don't forget about me. I will be back, maybe even tomorrow, it just all depends on the unknown.

Thank you for understanding

Oh PoP,
Boy do I know how you feel. I've had to put many animal friends down due to sickness or just plain old age. No matter how many times you do it, never gets any easier. My heart goes out to you.

Dear Patricia,

In the past year my daughter has opened like a particularly deep and wide window.

And in have jumped many souls... and the very best have been the souls of dogs I've known or that people she's loved have known.

This includes dogs of several generations back of whom we never had heard until we asked relatives about them.

Now this may seem strange and delusional. Perhaps it is... but it is uncanny in what she hears from them and what even I can feel among them.

There has come to be a great dogpile of love and hilarity here after many obscenely spare, harsh years.

Just tell you know he'll come to you. And make sure you greet him.

If you want more stories, I can let you know plenty.

Know where you're at. Had to put my 9 year old down due to bone cancer last fall. It sucks, but if they're in pain it's best to let them go rather than keep them around for us.

I hope your dog is comfortable and that everything works out for the best. It sounds like he's been lucky to have been adopted by you.

My cat took four years to die.

My daughter's cat is five and running.

Both were diagnosed with terminal illnesses.

I bet you got a lonnnnnng way to go with the dog.

ah, Patricia, I am so sorry your little one is not well. I'm so hoping it's temporary, and that he'll be coming home with you. Many animals have come my way, mostly dogs and cats. They just show up and tell me their names and walk in when I open the door. And stay. I can't say I know how you feel, I can only say how I have felt when they have been sick and when they are old and I know that losing them is inevitable. Whatever happens is meant to be, and he will always, always be there with you.

The kindest sweetest people on the internet visit my little site. Thank you for your kind and sincere comments. In the past, more than I want to think about, I have had to love my pets enough to let them go. My heart has been broken many times and yet it seems to heal and we start all over again. If it gets broken tomorrow, I know it will heal one more time. It has to because there will be another little dog some day who will need me just as much as I will need him.

It's one of the problems of living three score and ten in a world where most of the rest only make it to one if they're lucky.

All dogs go to heaven. Let's just hope that it isn't time for yours to go yet.

Everglades for me tomorrow, gators, snakes & birds.

I hope you're doing well and holding up ok. It's nice to see your "cyberspace friends" pulling for you. Count me in as one of them, too.

Dear Patricia, I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. I hope he'll be ok. You know that you loved him dearly and he knew it too. Actually I knew it too.

Be well

My sympathies, Pat. We all know the moment, and it's the worst.
