|Shelby girl <3|
With a heavy heart, I am writing today's post.
Shelby has been sick for quite some time now - had three surgeries to remove tumors. After complications and just cancer completely taking over her body, sadly, Shelby had to be put to rest on Monday.
I know it was so she wouldn't suffer anymore - her leg was swollen three times normal size, it was bleeding + oozing, she lost 5 lbs in just 10 days, she would only move from her bed to the living room...I could go on + on with her issues.
I've never had to put an animal to sleep before - they've all passed on due to natural causes. It doesn't make sense to me - my brain doesn't compute it - we don't put humans to sleep, but animals, we do? I have a hard time digesting it.
I just need to keep reminding myself that now she isn't in any pain - she isn't suffering anymore.
She was the best pup - ever. Had her for at least 13 years. She loved to swim, play fetch, chase ya...so energetic. It was so heart breaking when she was only able to fetch her ball three times before she gave up - it got to be too much for her.
I've lost a part of the family and it is so devastating, it really is. I know, with time, it will get a little easier. But there will always be an empty place in the house - and my heart.
|So spoiled. <3|
Sorry for the beyond depressing post today! It feels good to get all of that out, though.
