I know she is just a dog, but she is only 5…I don’t understand why the universe deals such rotten hands to its most innocent, beautiful creatures. Fuck cancer. We all have had our lives shattered watching someone we know have to battle a diagnosis that, for the majority, was completely unprovoked. It just seems so senseless. Scientifically, I understand why and how…but emotionally, it is the most frustrating disease to ever plague this world. It’s unfair. As childish and naive as that may sound, that is how I feel. I finally let the tears roll down my face as I come to the realization that I have to helplessly watch her health degrade to such a point where her quality of life is no longer present, and make the horrific decision to end her life for her own sake. People will tell me she is just a dog, and I get it…But I love her as much as I love my family. I just wish she had the opportunity to live a long, healthy life. I’m sorry I can’t save you. I’m sorry that there’s nothing else I can do. I’m sorry I just have to sit back and watch you die. I love you “H”…so much. Thank you for always being there for me when I needed you the most. I wish I could’ve given you more during your short time here. You will forever be in my heart.
