In May 2015, I was aware that my dog, Buddy was having episodes of the symptoms of dog arthritis. As a beagle, he’s also had ear infections. In early 2016, I was told by the veterinarian that he had a tumor in his stomach. The options were: 1. Either put him down, 2. Perform surgery and see if he’s operable. Even then, the chance of success is no guarantee. Or 3. Use painkillers to slow down the tumor. The last few weeks and days have been painful. He was immobile, shaking, couldn’t eat, drink, stand, and was in pain. On June 29, 2016, he passed away. :'( Despite knowing this day was coming, I’ve been going through the grieving process…Everybody that came across or who has met him, loved him.
This piece is dedicated and in memory of him.
Rest in Peace. I love you, Buddy. <3
We love you.
