A sad day
I have been very sad the whole day yesterday and the night before. Tuesday evening when I got home from work I found one of the little black doggies dead. At a first glance I thought she was asleep, because she looked so peaceful and quiet, then I touched her and she was cold… I think this is what someone would call an uncanny death (or better #Uncannydeath). This wasn’t murder though because the little one was serene and there was no signs of struggle nor bruises on her. I bet she should have had some kind of digestive system problems, sometimes it happens with puppies.
Then I suddenly remembered that Mina left her apart more than once while the others were eating, at the time I just thought it was because she was the biggest and the most nervous of the litter but only yesterday I realized that she wasn’t bigger she only had a bigger belly and she was probably nervous because she was in pain. I feel so sorry and a little guilty, maybe I should have paid more attention but Mina was so secure and careful with her babies that I didn’t bother to check on her. She probably knew about the puppy’s problem and she left her apart. Nature can be very cruel sometimes.
I named the little dog Susanna, then I buried her with the assistance of Rudy, we choose a nice place between rosa Sarah Van Fleet, one of my fave, and some narcissus bulbs. Poor dog.
The other three and Mina are more than fine, they even look grown in only a couple of days, surely they now have a mini dog shape, better than when they’ve born.
I didn’t mean to be too sad with this post and I’m sorry if I was instead but I felt like you should be informed of this loss, so now we can go on with better news for next time, I promise.
