The dog was whimpering, because it hurts when he breathes and he was breathing so rapidly and he was just an ordinary, local black dog. He was about 16 years old. As my doctor prepared the injection, the owners were crying and the dog seemed to know that it's for the best and the animals normally last long enough until they're certain that their owners are able to let them go.
He didn't need much restraining and he didn't put up a fight, he was OK. He seems to understand and seconds within the administration of the injection, he "released"everything and he finally looked peaceful. He was just lying there, looking so peaceful. I cried with the owners.
I've learnt that animals are here just to teach us lessons or help us through certain things in our lives, the most memorable quote about pets, I would like to quote Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)," A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because, they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Souls mates, they come into your live just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. A soul mate's purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you, your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master..."
After that, I thought that I'm immune to Death. Death doesn't scare me anymore. I learnt how to embrace Death. Until Death came knocking at my house, and took Patrick. Who is Patrick?
