My Dog Died Today

“You never know what you got til it’s gone.”

After suffering from cancer for over 4 years, my dog, Py, has finally found peace. Towards the end, Py was in a lot of pain. He became incontinent, shivered a lot and had random convulsions. He lost all appetite, even if you put the most delicious treat in front of him, he wasn’t interested. It was hard but I knew deep inside it was time for him to go.

Euthanasia is the kindest act that one can do for a dying dog in a lot of pain and so I had Py receive it today. 2 jabs and that was it. I was crying like a bitch for several days. The realization that Py can no longer make it far is when I noticed he could not stand up properly 4 days ago. He was wobbling about and had trouble lifting his head up to look at me. I was so heartbroken.

At first, Mom didn’t agree to euthanasia. Eventually she did, but she said her goodbyes in the morning and went to work, right before Dad, Vivian and I took Py to see Dr Pava at 10.30am. He administered 2 shots, first which was the tranquilizer and two, the euthanasia. It was so quick. Once Py was jabbed with it, he immediately stopped breathing. He found peace at last.

I feel so regretful to not have spend more time playing with Py. Giving him treats. Rubbing his forehead more often and longer. Giving him healthier, quality meals. As a result, I only have this much memories of Py.
