My Angel Casey!
Me and Casey
It has been almost 2 years since I lost my best friend. I was blessed to have spent 8 years with my beautiful yellow lab, Casey.
Casey was wonderful, playful and caring. There was never a time when she wasn't having fun, but she did get herself into trouble sometimes.
Unfortunately she had swallowed a rock and had to go through a surgery which was very unaffordable for my mother, who is a widow with six children. We did all we could to keep her alive. She recovered from that quickly but about a year later the same thing had happened. My family was filled with tears knowing that we had no choice but to put her down at this point.
Well it wasn't that easy. My mother then managed to pay for another $4000 surgery for our precious dog. She was healthy as always after that.
My family and I did so much with our dog. We took her to the beach plenty of times, which was her favorite.
It wasn't until Casey was around seven that she started going downhill. We noticed she was always shaking and sometimes crying because she was in so much pain. We knew something was wrong when she tried to bite my brother when he was petting her.
We weren't strong enough to go to the vet because we knew that we were going to be faced with the decision of putting her down. Each day went by slowly with tears in my eyes, thinking about what I'm going to do without her.
It wasn't until November 3rd when my mother picked me up from my friend's house and I got into the car. Her eyes were glassy and I saw it in her eyes. I started screaming, "No mom please no it didn't happen. NO." The words I never wanted to hear came out and she said yes.
It was one of the hardest moments of my life. I will never forget my angel Casey. She has touched my life.
