Lady's Story & Details
I have loved dogs all my life. They are a big part of me and I couldn't imagine my life without them; in fact, I love dogs so much that my first word was doggy. But my mom absolutely hates animals; she still does. So when my mom finally gave into letting me have one, I was ecstatic. I got Lady on my sixth birthday. We had a hard time finding the perfect dog, but we did. We got her at a breeders' home; Lady had one brother that had already been adopted and she was the only one left. We brought her home and I took her outside. I was going to name her Magenta (from Blues Clues), but my parent's talked me out of it; hence, the name Lady (from Lady and the Tramp).
She was the cutest little fluffball as a puppy. She never barked unless someone was at the door, and when they walked in, she would immediately hop up on them. She was really friendly with everybody. She wouldn't care much if my brother played rough with her; she was amazing. She especially grew close to my aunt, Heather. She lived with us for a while, and Lady stuck to her like velcrow. It would take her 5 minutes after greeting Heather just to calm down. I remember when Lady buried a dead bird in Heather's bed. it was the sweetest thing she'd ever done-and the grossest.
As time went on, I grew closer to Lady. I hardly had any friends in elementary school, so I would look forward to Lady greeting me at home everyday. We were inseparable. I loved her more than anything in the world.
But just a few months ago, Lady got a bump in her neck. She had been slowing down and hadn't been acting like herself. My dad finally look her to the vet, and she was diagnosed with cancer later that night. I was so devastated. I couldn't imagine my life without her, even though I knew I would have to in a few weeks. I wrote her memorial letter that night. I wrote about everything I loved about her, everything I didn't. I wrote about memories, the good and the bad. I wrote about how she would always have a piece of my heart, and I would always have a piece of hers. She meant everything to me, and I wanted her to know that.
She died on January 5th, 2010. She was breathing very rapidly and I could tell she was in pain, even though she tried to hide it. I went over to her, and i started to talk to her. I heard that if you give your dog permission to die, they would feel like it was okay to leave you. We planned to put her down the next day, but abou 30 min after I talked with her, she was gone. I was watching Rachael Ray while she was dying; i looked over to her-her breathing was slowing down. i ran to her, and I touched her about 2 seconds before she was gone. I cried so much that night; my eyes looked like they'd been stung by bees :) I tried to be strong for my brother, who was also very close to Lady. We both missed her so much. Not only was I just crying, I was in pain. I knew that this was just the first of many nights she wouldn't be with me. I went into a state of denial for a while, thinking I would be okay if I believed she wasn't dead. But I soon realized that this wasn't helping at all, and I would have to face her death sooner of later. I miss her more than anything, but I let her go because I love her.
My family and I are now adopting two new dogs from a shelter. And I can't wait for them to be the new additions to our family.
