My Dog Is Slowly Dying From Cancer

by Hailey

My dog, Rosie, has cancer. She's slowly going away. I can just see it in her.

I have a deep hole in my heart like I'm missing something. I feel like I'm drifting away, like I need to cry and just stay alone in my bedroom.

I have exams so it's so hard for me to keep up with her, take her outside, love her, make her a bit better, happy, and so much more. She's always there for me, kissing me, and even walking up the stairs -- it takes her about 5-10 minutes.

I'm going to miss her.

Rosie

Hug her, kiss her back, and tell her you love her so much! When the time comes, she'll let you know.

Hold her, whisper in her ear, and tell her she'll be in God's hands and you'll always love her.

You're going to hurt so much for so long, but you don't want to think back and know she suffered.

Peace to you.

Cancer
by: Priscilla

In 2009, Nell, my beloved little Sheltie, suddenly laid down, unable to walk. I took her to the Vet, only to discover she had lymphoma. I expected to bring her home, but due to the advanced cancer, it was only fair to her to let her go and stop her suffering.

Even as I write this, there is an emptiness in my life. Be kind to your friend and don't let the suffering continue.
