Hello everyone, it’s been a while…
Lot’s of things happened on this month and a half I took a break, and if any of you follow me on my Instagram then you already know. The most recent and the most painful by far was that our beautiful dog Menta passed away a week ago.
(This picture is from the day she died a few hours before)
She died the age of almost 16 years old (Jan was her birthday). I planned a big birthday for her but she didn’t make it. She was such a wonderful, crazy and cute doggie and she will be missed forever.
She passed away at home from lung cancer and it was just heartbreaking to see her go, we wanted more time to play, be with her, saying our goodbyes… But it was too fast.
We still find ourselves calling out to her as we try to live without her but our routines, habits and moments together for so many years, makes it so hard. It’s been a week now, and it still hurts a lot. I call out to her so that she will cuddle up with me, or to give her food or just to see how happy she acted as we entered home and we called out her name.
I am so happy that I was able to be with her in her last moments, especially when things went to the worst fast. Just hours before she was doing okay (not great but really okay) and a few hours later she was gone. We truly thought we had more time with her. The vet called to tell us that the blood results came back and that she has lung cancer that was very aggressive and that with the treatment she will only have another week. We planned to go the vet the next day or after that to give her the injection but she passed away that evening.
I am so relieved she didn’t suffer much and at the end, she passed away at home in my arms as I calmed her down. But even now, a week after her death still hurts so much. And even now as I write this post and tears pouring down my face for missing her so much, I am still so grateful to have all these big and small moments with her for 15 years.
Thank you so much, Menta
You will be missed so much ❤
