This post was definitely not the post I was planning on posting today & it hurts my heart that I even have to write this post. Today has been a day where life shows you the down side.
It’s been a very sad Sunday for me, we lost our family dog Pixie, she became very ill & had to be put down this morning *Crying*
It’s the second time I experience a family dog being put down & it’s still hurting as much as the first time. The first one was the same breed & she was 14 years old when she was put down due to illness, unfortunately Pixie wasn’t that old, she was only 7 years. My parents got Pixie just after I moved out of their house, but I have always visited a lot, therefore I’ve also been very closed attached to her as well & her to me, even through I didn’t see her every day! We have always had a special bond, I was kind the playmate to her, & I could make her act very foolish like no one else could & I’ve taught her many funny tricks.
Honestly she has always been a bit of a weird dog, but I loved her anyway & it was these weirdnesses that made her so special & lovely.
It’s honestly like loosing a family member when you lose a pet & this time I have taken it really hard, I’ve literally been crying on & off the whole day & still while I’m writing this! So this has been such a sad day for me & it’s going to be so strange the next time I go to my parents house, cause there’ll be no one to greet you at the door, no one to greet you in the morning, no one to take for walks & no one to act silly with running around the garden or house, god I MISS her so much already.
I was at my parents house this weekend, so luckily I got to say a proper goodbye to her, we all went to the vet & said goodbye to her. She is now buried in the garden with our first dog & I’m sure she is at a much better place now & that she got peace, even through it hurt like hell that she isn’t here anymore!
You really get attached to a pet & it’s both a good & bad thing, it’s the most amazing thing when they’re here & happy, but the most awful thing when they aren’t anymore & you have to say goodbye.
She was very ill & this was the right thing to do for her & we’ll all get through it eventually, but the next couple of days we all be hurting & mourning, we’ll be processing it in our own pace & that’s okay, cause we lost a member of the family on this very sad Sunday!
I’ll end this sad post with the first & last photo I took of little Pixie, may she rest in Peace.
