    My dog,ebony,died a couple of days ago:hit She had a disease that nobody could figure out and had to be put down [​IMG] The day before she died,she laid on a rug for seven hours until I came home.Then she waited at the door and barked.By that night,she was feeling better but they put her down anyway![​IMG] It's not uncommon for a dog to be sad that her owner is at school,especially if she's sick!And now they are going to try and figure out what happened![​IMG] You should have made a better effort when she was alive,So that she could get better,vets!But no.They try harder now.And now my mom said,"In a couple of years,we'll get another dog.."[​IMG] WHAT?A COUPLE OF YEARS?And I've had a dog all my life until now?I'm about scratching my eyes out just waiting to get chickens!I mean come on.[​IMG] Wow I need a time machine...either to go back to January when she was alive and well,to go into 2013 so I can get another dog (if I can't convince her to a couple of months,)or to go into 2026 so that I can become a vet and keep this from happening to someone else.[​IMG]

    Maybe in the mean time Fluffy you could volunteer at a local shelter. They always need people to help walk and care for the dogs there.

    Thanks guys. I still look for her when I get home. We still don't have any pets, thanks to my mom's cancer. We can't get the MRI until June, so even if it's gone, no dogs or chicks for a while. [​IMG]

    I [​IMG] cancer!
