It’s Never Easy

Posted on

It truly is never easy to say goodbye.  No matter how long you have prepared yourself for that one last time, it still hurts like a ton of bricks.  Later today we’re saying goodbye to our long loved family dog Lance.  We all knew the time was coming.  He is an elderly, almost 14-year-old, Golden retriever with severe allergies, hip dysplasia, thyroid disease and basically no teeth.  He now struggles to stand on a daily basis.  It is time to let him go.  I was told the decision had been made this weekend and I really didn’t have any emotion about it.  That was until last night when it really hit me. This was it.  No more big ball of fur laying next to my feet whenever I go to visit my parents.  I will post a little eulogy tomorrow when I can gather all my thoughts.  For now I want to say I will miss you Lance but I will never forget you.

  4. So sorry to hear this. It’s so hard to begin seeing them as only a shell of their former selves. I was just reading the post above when I saw this one, but it does sound like he was very well-loved.
