A few months ago me and my brother wanted to walk to the gas station so we shut the gate and left… when I got back one of my biggest fears in having a dog came true. My dog some how forced her way through the gate. She probably tried to find us but the house was off of a main road that is really busy so it’s possable some one picked her up. I looked every where and did every thing I could but i couldn’t find her.
I’m still too sensitive to losing pets and things I grow attached to so I’ve been pretty downthe past few months. This is the second dog I’ve owned so I’ve learned a valuable lesson I can take away from having the blessing of being able to have her as my friend for a short amount of time.
Hopefully she found a new home with nice people. She was sweet and smart so hopefully she wouldn’t get put down at the dog pound-(I’m thinking negatively) but it would be awesome if they helped her get adopted. (I love the dog pound and animal shelters it’s a lot of fun to go see all of the animals they help and take care of) I’m thinking it’s going to be a while before I take a new dog in. At least till I get a good house of my own any ways so there’s always volunteering at the animal rescue at least.
I don’t like crying and I didn’t cry at first but I cried in time and dealt with my feelings in my own way and with a little help from friends. The life of a pet isn’t comparable to human life so I can’t imagine what it must be like in the places around the world when I have trouble getting over a pet. I’m not much help but I pray every one can find help in all these situations with in themself and with family and friends to get through all of the senseless violence and every thing else going on.
My dog running away reminds me of death and also faith in a way. I have faith she isn’t dead but I can’t be sure. I can’t see her or know exactly what happened after I lost her but I have faith she is in a better place regardless. 🙂 my faith in Jesus really helps because that’s where I first learned how to get through the general pain of loss.
I should have been more responsible in keeping the gate secured.. and I thought It was. There are steps to be certain but as I found out the hard way some times accidents happen.. and it’s possible some one opened the gate and took her but no matter what happened I’m glad I got to know her.
Love, Grace and peace
