Goodbye monkey.

I lost my pet today.  Well, lost is the wrong word.  I chose to euthanize him to end his suffering.  I’ve lost pets in the past of course, but this is my first time as a adult.  I’ve had Toby for just over 5 years.  He was a Valentine’s gift from my ex-husband and in many ways was the best gift I’ve ever been given.  He came from an SPCA and it seems his life before he came to me wasn’t necessarily the best.  We worked through a lot of issues together, and he took to being a spoiled, pampered pet like a duck to water.  There were many times he drove me crazy, but so many more that he made me smile or laugh.  He was one of those dogs that looked like he was always smiling.  He liked to mooch off your plate, and sleep between my feet.  I’ve been feeling guilty about uprooting his happy life but he never complained.  He never minded when I cried in the night on our walks, and he was a great listener.  My ex once said that he was the kind of dog you tell stories about.  Maybe I’ll feel like telling them someday…but right now all I can do is cry.  I need a hug so badly, but I’m all alone.   Consider this my cry out into the wilderness: if you read this, and believe in a higher power, ask them to smile upon my Toby.  All in all, he was a good dog.

P.S. please, no Rainbow bridge.
