We're putting our old dog down on Monday
She's been a major part of my childhood. I can't remember a time without her because there never was one. She's 16. Older than me by a whole year. She's been in the family since she was a puppy.
I'm sorry if this is too dramatic or dark or personal for the forums. I don't know. I haven't been on in forever but I remember people would come here for comfort whenever something like this would happen. I feel like maybe this will help me process it?
My mind honestly still can't believe it. I can't believe she's not gonna be here next Monday night. I've never had to do this before? I hate it?
She's old. Her body's breaking down and she's never getting better. She needs pain medication. There's no doubt its time.
She's just so tough. She never gives in or shows pain.
She's an old fashioned American Pit Bull. Not a mix or a modern bully dog bred for extreme features. She's been judged unfairly and many places that accept other dogs with open arms turn her away, but she's honestly one of the kindest and sweetest and most loyal and friendly and stubborn dogs ever. Nobody who's ever met her can deny that.
My family isn't religious. I'm not religious. But if there's a better place, I know she's going there, and if there isn't she'll at least be free from the aches and pains and hardships of old age and her failing body.
I'm crying. I hate this. I'm sorry
