A little blind, a little
She'd rather sit in your lap and avoid a walk. No dog parks. No play dates.... just quiet, and gentle moments left. There was a time when she was lovely, and her owner proudly displayed her like rare china. But now she's old, her fur sparse, skin rough and thickened like the hide of an elephant.
Someone with a kind heart saw her wizened little face and just wanted her to have more time and a loving home for the last moments of her life. The person offered to take her if no one else would. When I called to check I was told the little dog was scheduled for euthanasia. They couldn't find her. After searching, she was found. So I asked the supervisor to please hold her. He put in an IP for me, I said I'd pick her up the next day... There was a home that wanted her.... someone was interested... someone cared....
I planned to pick her up after work.... at around 3:00. I had everything ready.... I had pulled out the small crate, and picked out a little blanket. It was one of my softest.... pink with little black puppy paws.... I figured pink for a little girl. At noon her new mom-to-becalled to check on her. She was told that she had been euthanized.
So now I'm holding this little blanket to my face and I can't stop crying. I know it sounds silly. Some people would say it's only a dog, and it's only a little old dog at that... she would have died anyway....
But she still had time, and someone that would have loved her until the very end.
