Tonight we said good-bye to my faithful companion. His pain had become too much for him. He put on the front that he didn't hurt; kept a smile on his face and continued to wag his tail, but he couldn't really stand anymore and he could barely walk two steps before he fell. Ryan had to force feed him his pain medicine this morning, so we knew it was time. I spent part of last night laying on the floor next to him as he tried to find a comfortable position. I cried into his fur and thanked him for being a faithful companion and loving me unconditionally. There is no question in my mind that this dog was sent to me from God, and he has been a blessing to our family from the moment he arrived.
Run free and out of pain, Chili Dawg. I love you so much!
