|Thank you so much for the DD guys!|
Our 15-year-old beagle had lost the ability to walk on his own, began refusing food, and water. All within a week. We made that decision that we were dreading so much, after finally realizing what it would’ve meant for him if we had kept him home, lying on a blanket, day-after-day, We had to make that decision; the one that we were dreading for so long.
We saw it in his eyes. He wanted to get up, run, and howl into the fresh air, and dig up some tasty
cat poop food. As he was, he couldn’t do any of that.
We took him to the vet, and had him put to sleep. It was painful, but having him suffer at home would have been worse.
He had always right behind someone, always quick to steal the other dog’s food, and howling/baying for attention when we were busy. Whenever we had company, he wanted to be the first to greet them.
He was the first puppy that my brother, my sister, & I ever had.
He was a true test of patience. I remember spending hours chasing after him down the street, even on cold winter days.
Still, he brought us so much laughter, and he was a great source of comfort after dad just up & left us for no good reason. He would always send us to sleep with a little cuddle here & there.
He had an iron will and a stomach of steel. When he didn’t get his way, he would throw a very noisy tantrum.He had a huge Napoleon complex, which he acted on without shame. He was also very handsome, needless to say…
Charlie, you were a real handful, but you were worth it. Every day now, we remind each other of both the big & little things that you did, and we treasure those moments. We’ll take good care of the other dogs & cats. There’s no need to worry.
You gave us your love in any way that you could. We will always remember you. We miss you so much.
We love you, and we always will.
