The companion i’ve had by my side for the last 12 years, never a day without each other. Seeing her unwell and in pain hurt me just as much as it hurt her, as much as I didn’t want to be gone I knew it had to be done. It was what was best for her. January 20th, 2015 would be the last time I saw my precious dog. I arrived home from school with my mom, my dad arrived home slightly later.
I thought school was kinda’ fun and I enjoyed playing with my friends at recess. My life was normal. But one day after school my Dad called us all into the family room. My Dad was usually one to always be happy and not one to easily show defeat, but that day he looked sort of dejected as we all sat down
I just wish I had my parents back. If only I could start over and tell them that I respect their decision to keep me home. I would tell them I would stay home and spend time with them. I would say to them that I love them and will spend weekends at home instead of going out. If only I could start over and not let them leave me.
Loneliness - my experience… Loneliness is something we have all experienced, however there are always different extents to which it has been experienced by each one of us. In many cases people deny that they feel lonely from time to time, but deep inside we all know, that it’s an undeniable fact. Every person has different circumstances in life, which leads to some of us experiencing what being lonely is like at a very young age and some of us having the experience being older. Being older, doesn’t necessarily mean being more mature. It always seems that when you are an adult, it is easier to deal with loneliness and that might be true, however there are more exceptions than we see.
Sure, all the girls were nice enough, and I had found people to sit with at lunch, but it all just made me miss my two best friends even more. I missed having crazy conversations at lunch, private jokes that only we got, and just having someone to hang out with after school. I had always loved school before because it was a place I got to be with my friends, but this year was different. This year I did not love school. In fact, I started to dread going to school the next day because I felt like an outsider.
I have got to know this dog before but, the dog never really was comfortable with me being around it so I tried to keep my distance from the dog. There was times where the dog did want to come near me and let me pet it but that was a very rare experience and there was days where it wanted nothing to do with me. I mean I was perfectly fine with having space with the dog I just didn't like the dog as much because it was a lot bigger than me. This day was not a good day for me nor the dog that was in the situation, as I was playing with my friends I was running around a fence and got too close to the
When we first brought her home, she was a cute little puppy that preoccupied everyone 's attention. We cared for her just like our own baby. We watched her constantly to ensure that she would not come to any harm. We put diapers on her for when she had to urinate. We even gave her milk when she was hungry.
Next morning, my dad wasn’t there with us, it felt lonely, as if part of my heart was not there with me. I wanted to cry, but I knew that my dad was not there with us physically but he was with us in our hearts. As time passed, my mom asked us if we wanted to go to The United States and my sister and I were so happy, we said yes because our dad was up there.
My sister never really appreciated it but I did. The compliments I got on the nice things my dad gave me was awesome and I could never feel any better. One day I was sitting at school and I waited for my dad to come get me from school. Mom told him to don’t forget to come get me because she had a doctor appointment. It was raining very hard and I was getting soaked and wet so my teacher gave me a ride home.
I left it at home!” I grinned, “Well then, see you two later!” **** I just reached home just in time. But, something was different. There were more police cars in my neighborhood than usual. I quickly ran inside and saw my mom sitting on the couch, crying. I ran up to her and hugged her.
