Christmas gifts yet?
SO's beloved Springer Spaniel, Max died this past May. He was being treated for a possible cancerous growth on his leg, and we were waiting for biopsy results. SO and I had gone out for a class reunion, Max was at his Ex wife's. We picked him up on the way back through to my place.
Max began whining with pain shortly after we got in bed, so I asked SO if he had any pain meds for him. .. Yes, and they were in the truck, so SO went to get them. Meanwhile I got out of bed to comfort Max, and he basically had a seizure and died in my lap just as SO returned with the meds. We think he died from spetic shock as SO's wife had taken Max to the vet while we were out to get his bandages changed, and that vet said the first vet did a horrible job of the biopsy/bandaging, etc,
SO was just heartbroken... his beloved running buddy and sidekick of 9 years was gone.
He still tears up thinking of him.
I had several pics of Max on my phone, and a CM friend in another group is quite a talented artist. She's doing a pencil drawing of Max for me so I can frame it and give it SO for Christmas!
I can't wait to see it!
Life is divine chaos.
Embrace it. Forgive yourself. Breathe.
And enjoy the ride....
