About my dog, Crystal. She’s almost 11 years old, but she’s hurting a lot. She’s on 7 medications but now for the past couple of days it is hard for her to walk.
I think my dad was thinking about putting her to sleep asap. But I suggested waiting a week, and my mom quickly agreed. A week is long enough to see if she’ll get better, right?
Well, for the next week I’ll be taking as many pictures as I can of my dog and I. I was devastated when i thought she was dead after she got hit by a truck almost 6 years ago, but I feel it will be easier to let go now that I know she’ll be happier once she’s out of pain.
I’ve always wanted to know why you guys are scared of death and dying. According to what I’ve heard from the majority of you guys, people who die go to a “better place” and heaven is paradise and fantasterrific. So… wouldn’t you guys count the days until you get the privilege to die instead of fear it?
Well, death is a scary concept. What if you didn’t get to finish everything you wanted to? What if you aren’t good enough for Heaven? You have to leave behind everyone you love, not knowing how your death will affect everyone. I know I have this concept of not being good enough for a lot of things, so death is something that scares me personally. There are some really devout Catholics/Christians that, even though we’re sad about death, they still rejoice that their loved ones are going to Heaven. Some of the stories of the saints rejoice for the gift to be with God.
It’s just human instinct.to be scared of something that seems so permanent to us.
I hope that helps a little bit?
