Hey, here is the story of my dog (my childhood pet)


My parents got saga 9 months before i was born, which later became my best and only friend for the next 9 years of my life.
He was very protective of me, and only let immediate family close to me.
He got hepatitis around the age of 3/4 which according to the vet he got from drinking pond water. He also had alot of problems with hips, and by the time he was 7 was blind. towards the end he couldn't even walk anymore as his back legs had completely gone and he could no longer walk, this is when my parents and grandad thought it would be best to get him put down so he wouldn't have to suffer. I remember seeing him struggle up the stairs, was heart breaking. He also suffered from fits, and would shake and vomit.
One time in particular i remember, it was christmas morning about 4/5am and i was downstairs with my parents and mom opening 1 present cause i couldn't sleep, and saga was there with me, he then disappeared behind the sofa and started having a fit and i remember after he vomited, he dragged himself across the floor to where i was and looked at me, i was terrified and turned away from him. I can never forgive myself for doing this, and i feel absolutely heart broken and still find myself crying even after 12 years.

It was my first experience of death and i don't think i can ever get over it. i spent every weekend and afternoon with that dog, after he died i remember going to my parentss house and seeing all his carpets where he laid just gone, as if he wasn't even there anymore, i cried for 3 days straight. His ashes are buried under a rose bush in their garden now, and i often sit by them for comfort, i hope in my next life to see him again, because its a horrible, heart breaking feeling to think i never will.
