This was the last picture I took of our dog, Buck. Just a few weeks before he got sick. He passed away last night around 10:30 - 11 pm. And I wanted to be there if he goes, but I wasnt. He'd fought a good long fight. He'd been sick for I think close to 2 months. And always I would cry when I see him getting worse but then in the morning you'd see him all perky despite not being able to stand or walk. He would bark or cry whenever you leave his sight and would sometimes reach out for my hands or feet with his, as if comforting me. When it should be the other way around.
He was a very gentle, loving and friendly dog. Im relieved that he is free from pain and probably running around in Doggie heaven. But also sad because I miss him. For weeks, he had been a constant fixture in the living room area. And it makes me sad not to see him there. I hope me and my brother had made him happy during his last few days. Thats all I wanted, for him to be happy before he goes.
Anyway, thats it. Sorry for the gloomy post. Just needed to let that out.
