dyk  i am really struggling this week.

Dyk we had to put down my beautiful 15 year old dog Sam and honestly i am crushed. i took him to the dogwash monday and he collapsed , we took him to the vet and he thought it was lukemia or lupus.

DYK  at his age there was not much they could do, they gave him a shot hoping it might give him some time but by tuesday afternoon i could tell he had lost the wonderful spark in his eyes and was having difficulty breathing. it all happened so quick.

DYK Sam helped me get   through some hard times as a teenager  and has been by my side all these years, its like losing one of my best friends.

DYK i am trying my best for the family to get on with things and i know some people think i am strange being so upset, i just cant help it though,  he really was the most amazing dog and i was so lucky to have him.

dyk I am so sorry about Sam. It is not at all strange to have deep feelings and be distraught over the loss of a pet. Our Coco is 16 and I'm not sure how much longer we'll have her. She has definitely been my 4th child and she grew up with my kids. She's almost completely blind now and mostly deaf. She has pancreatitis and high blood pressure and doggie dementia. She often falls over and has trouble getting up. But we'll hold on as long as we can. dyk hugs to you.

dyk your post almost brought me to tears.

dyk I'm so sorry about your dog Sam. It's not strange to feel sad or distraught over a companion you've had for so long.

dyk I think I am finally full.

dyk I haven't been eating enough and with running, I think that's been contributing to the crankiness.

dyk but now I feel sleepy. HA!

dyk I am 1/2 way through packing -- maybe more if you consider that I had to grocery shop as well, haha and we're taking most of the food I bought for the DINNER TOMORROW

dyk Sean's brother and Sean are making breakfast

dyk then they are going to the shooting range

dyk while the girls (Me, Heather (aka Sparkle), Abi and Ellie cook and bake

dyk I got the fruit Abi asked me to for her to make more fruit skewers

dyk and Ellie.... she'll prob play with the dogs the entire time

dyk I have car snacks, movies, drinks, all the electronics charged....

dyk when Sean was camping he said there were things he knew should have been organized better and it irritated him that they weren't and he said that I have ruined him for all outside planned events HA

dyk that's funny.
