I have buried friend’s, family, and loved ones in my time. But yesterday morning may have been the toughest thing I have ever had to do. On August 22nd 2015 my wife and I woke to our 7 year old husky having a seizure at 4:30 am, we did everything we could to keep him calm and cool so he would not go into hypothermia. As my wife tended to our dog I got online and started looking for 24 hour emergency vets, this is almost an impossible task, it seems that 24 hours in the metro Detroit area only means from 9 to 5. It was to late, my dog had multiple seizures and passed away In my wives arms. By 5:30 am I was now looking for somewhere to take our beloved friend to be cremated. The city we live in you can not bury animals. I finally found a place to take him and returned home by 6:30 am. Within 2 hours our lives had been turned upside down. All we have now are the memories we shared with are beloved dog. This is the first time I have ever cried in front of my wife in 14 years, and the pain is getting worse and worse. Dogs are our best friend’s and companion’s, they love you and there family unconditionally and deserve the very best in there short time on this earth. I understand that things happen in life that you have no control over and that death is part of life. I guess the point to this tweet is that if your animal passes away take as much time as needed to grieve, in my experiences the loss of are dog has been much worse then any of my friend’s and family that have passed on. Please share this tweet with anyone you know that has a best friend at home that they look forward to seeing as soon as they walk through the door. R.I.P Dean, we love you and we miss you.
