Default My little girl

I know I have another thread on this, but I can't find it.

I lost my best friend today. She had to be put down. I bring this shit on myself because I only adopt rescue dogs and only older dogs because nobody ever gives them a chance.

This one hurts the most. She was a small rotty when I got her and she loved when I carried her around like a baby on my shoulder. Eventually, I nursed her back to health and put weight on her. The, she developed what the vet described as the worst type of cancer.

Her name was Brooklyn (not my choice. I keep their original names).

When I went to the site to adopt, I was looking up the hill as I walked, and she lowered her head and stared at me. She had golden eyes. She hated me. The previous night, she had run from the rescue site and spent the night in the woods. She bit me twice. But, we eventually became best friends.

I'm sorry for the long message, but I need to get this out. I'm pacing the house, have an assignment due for my phd program, can't concentrate on anything. I don't think there will ever be another dog in my future.

I wish I could post a picture of her, but I don't think I'm allowed.

I've tried for an hour to put a picture up, but I just can't figure out how to do it.

Their lives are so very special. While too brief, it sounds like she was very much loved, possibly for the only time in her life. That is such a powerful gift you shared.

Making the choice to end her suffering brings such a mix of feelings -- I hope knowing how much you helped her lessens the pain you feel at losing her.

Take care.
