where all dogs go

My dog, Rozz, passed away this weekend.

He was already sick, and has been for a long time (diabetes), but on Thursday his condition became notably worse. He couldn't walk or get up on his own, and he wouldn't eat and would barely drink. So um, I guess I kind of could tell it was coming...but overall it was just a really horrible experience and I really miss him dearly.

I would've given anything--anything to have been able to take him to the vet, but we just didn't have the money. And I have a feeling they would've had us put him down, anyway, so I really don't think there was much more I could've done for him. :( I still feel so guilty though. I wish things hard turned out different.

So now I just have one dog, Sparky, who's probably really lonely without his friend. I've been trying to hang out with him more, and he seems all right. But I still worry.

It was also Anime USA this weekend, but sadly, I don't really have a lot of cosplay pics to post, since my camera was full and I was too distracted by what happened to care. I might do a post anyway, if I feel so inclined, but sadly I have a host of other things to worry about first (all school-related).

Yeah, 'cause that's definitely what I want to be thinking about right now >_>

Sorry to hear about Rozz. It's really hard to see a pet in such a state. We had a red pointe siamese named Isis who developed some kind of disease and when we took her to the vet they wanted to put her down but we refused and took her home and took care of her so she knew she was loved. If his condition was already bad there was probably nothing they could've done so keeping him home was the best so he could be with the people who loved him.

*hugs* Yeah, he had been suffering for a really long time--in addition to the above, he was also blind and really had trouble just...doing anything the last couple days. It was really heartbreaking and in a way, I'm relieved that he's in a better place now.

But I still miss him so much and I wish things had turned out different. ;_; I'm sorry to hear you had to deal with a similar situation with Isis. I've had friends who have dealt with many pet deaths and they say it really doesn't get any easier ;_;

Now I'm just trying to be with my other dog as much as I can (I do have school during the day, but at night, I'll try to stay downstairs and watch TV with him, etc.)

Thank you so much for your support, and though I didn't get around to commenting on your entries about your cat, I'm so glad she's going to be okay!
