Sometimes Winning Isn’t so Good

9 Mar

The last few days have been pretty shitty.  My new dog, that I had for exactly 71 days, had to be put down last week.  It was very rough, and very unexpected.  He was a sweet boy but was very sick.  By the time I got him, he didn’t have a fighting chance.  As you can imagine, I’ve been spending a lot of time moping and crying off all my make up.  In the last day or so, I’ve started to get back towards my normal self.

Yesterday afternoon I walked out with Disney as I do on most days.   We decided to play this wonderful little game where we attempt to one up one another.

  • Catherinette: My dog is dead.
  • Disney: So is mine.
  • Catherinette: Well I have two dogs that are dead.
  • Disney: My mother is dead.
  • Catherinette: My dreams of a future with a husband and children are dead.
  • Disney: You win.

    I am so sorry! I’m sure his last 71 days with you were good, though!

    I’m so sorry about the pup. It’s hard enough to lose one!

    And girl, don’t even joke about your future being hopeless, because if there’s no hope for you, I am royally screwed. We’ll be ok yet!

    Any guy would be lucky to have you, as was your dog to have been able to spend the last days with you.

    Your life has sucked royally, I agree. However, I think you need to be in the right place at the right time to find your Prince Charming. I’m thinking a few hours north or you…

    Just started reading you – and I loved this post (being a big animal lover.) I’m glad he was able to spend his days with someone who obviously cared and loved for him.

    Like Mel, I just started reading and I’m sorry to hear about your dog. I’m a big animal lover too. I reflect the sentiments of your other commenters: I’m sure you made the last 71 days the best of his life.

    Sorry about your dog…that’s tough to take. On the other hand, I laughed out loud at your game. Good post.

    Obviously I am way late to this post, but I could hardly believe it when I wrote it. So sorry about your loss (for the second time in a year)! I know how hard it s when a puppy gets sick. We thought for sure we were going to lose Jersey. Luckily she is still around.

    I hope the next pup is a lifer!
