Sick Kids, Dead Dog, Fucking Life

I was saying yesterday, the kids are sick. The older one is mostly better now, the little one, just started coming down with it yesterday.   

Master was putting the little one to bed while I waited in our room for him to get back. He'd been playing on the laptop while I read my book.   I heard noises of the not at all encouraging kind.

Master came back in to the bedroom and asked "Would you like to go clean up the barf?"

Ummmmmm.

I asked if he wanted an honest answer or if he wanted me to say "Yes, Sir!"

He said "I want you to say 'Yes, Sir!' and go do it.  I live for that shit".  Then he swatted me.   This would have been funny except then I had to go clean up barf.

Also, we had to put our dog Kip to sleep last night.   He was 12 and he had cancer, not the treatable kind, so when he seemed to be in pain yesterday I let Master know it was time.

  We dug a hole, then Master and I did the euthanasia ourselves in the kitchen (he is a vet).  I held the dog and rolled the vein and he did the injections, and then we buried him in the dark under the lilac, both of us crying. 

It really was not a good day.

  1. Aww ksst, I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. It's so hard saying goodbye, and having to put them down makes it that much harder.

    And yea, barf always makes everything worse. It just does.

    Hope everybody starts feeling better soon.

  2. We've been through losing our dog in a few different iterations - it really is hard, harder than we ever expect it to be. I am really sorry. I hope the creeping crud doesn't last long in any case.

  3. We went through this about three years ago, it just sucks but you gave the dog a good life and you have to remember that.

  4. Oh darlin, I am so sorry. Damn - when it rains it pours. On top of the stress of sick kids - the death of a pet is so sad. Vet or not, it's still hard to hold your friend - your family member.

    Hugs,

  5. I'm so sorry for your loss. At least he was able to pass peacefully surrounded by those who loved him.
