Take your time man. We, the humble way walkers, understand. There is no rush.
I am sorry to hear that, I’ve been there myself a while back.
I’m so sorry to hear that.
Take all the time you need.
Losing a pet is hard. Please don’t worry about us and take your time.
it’s crazy stuff like this:
doggo, refusing to eat her ground up hamburger i made her, me, panicking because her appetite is my guide for if she’s in too much pain and needs to be put down, in a soft voice says, “are you okay, doggo? do you need more pain meds? have you decided it’s time? do i need to call the vet?” as i lean down to scratch her ears, she lifts her head, staring sadly into my eyes with her own brown, as she very delicately if not stealth fully snatches my grilled kielbasa off my plate, devouring it in two happy bites.
doggo: wags tail, then proceeds to eat hamburger.
hilarious, but stressful.
jfc my dogs do that a lot too, but it’s just because I’m a pushover who will feed them by hand because they are my children, but stillllllll.
These situations are incredibly stressful and can throw you out of your writer’s headspace, so don’t feel bad if you need to focus on something else that isn’t the game, okay?
Sounds like your doggo has learned a lot of tricks
She might have been talking to mine,
Hopefully there will be more memories like this to share in the near future
@impeccably-stressed - seriously i’d love to focus on anything else but its hard, ya know? between this and the nightmare that is house hunting…ugh.
@Eiwynn – whats wild is in all her 12 years she has never been interested in people food until these last few weeks. it’s amusing and distressing as she fades.
I view it as their attempt to get closer to their loved ones.
My sister’s pug is not well. He has just (as in the last 24 hours) gone completely blind and his behavior at times this last few weeks are being seen in a different light now that we have this knowledge.
I hope you are able to turn your distress into positives; perhaps your gal can make a cameo appearance in your stories, that would be a cool way to focus your distress
yeah, i think someone is going to save a doggo somewhere in a tale here or there.
No joke, this just made me burst into tears. I recently lost my kitty and she was the same. I spent years thinking “oh god it’s coming” only for her tough lil butt to keep chugging along. Take all the time you need, and I hope you get to make many more funny memories together.
Doggo collapsed and wouldn’t get up. We sat with her for a bit, petting and talking and with tears in my eyes I suggested that we get dressed and take her to the vet.
Doggo then proceeded to sit bolt upright, struggle to her feet and insist on getting up the steps to bed.
This dog is going to destroy my blood pressure. -_-
I wanted to share a story about my doggo, typed it all out, then was like “this is a sad story, I don’t want to inflict this on others, I should delete it.” Then I was like “I typed it all out sooo…” here ya go:
Man, that would kill me. My puppers was having trouble breathing on Friday (years ago, not any time recent) at 13. He was a pit so that’s about right for lifespan. I’m freaking out. Mom is freaking out. I get there, the little bastard hops up and runs to me and licks me all over, happy that I’m home. He’s fine all weekend. Monday morning, I wake up to rasping. I look down and he has a blue tongue, eyes popping out of his head. I don’t even change, I pick him up and run him to the vet to have him euthanized. It KILLED me to do that but he couldn’t breathe and I could not let him struggle to breathe for me.
It sounds like your dog has had a long and happy life with a loving owner.
You sure this dog is not the reincarnation of Sem? Jokes aside, I hope everything will be ok.
RIP my Doggo

I cannot believe your last earthly act was to stick your tongue in my mouth.
Love you forever <3
I am so sad for you!!! But doggo has moved onto Doggo Heaven and is no longer in pain! Take time to grieve, we’ll be here for you when you return.
