How long do you prolong suffering?

I was reading a post in a dog related FB group last night and was so sad that someone had a dog who has had severe neurological problems since he/she was only months old.

They’ve controlled seizures with medication but he/she has other symptoms they cannot control. Severe ones. Enough to make me think the dog’s quality of life is quite poor.

Yes, I know they love her. But seriously, love also means knowing when our beloved companions are suffering and you as a responsible owner can stop the suffering. You don’t keep the poor pet alive because you cannot bear to be without them.

Yes, it hurts to let them go. It hurts a lot. It is devastating.  Please, when they are suffering, let them go.

When Gavin, aged 15, reaches that point in his life where the quality of his life is at its low point, we will let him go as we have other sweet companions we loved with all our hearts. For now the silly boy still bounces through life.

In case you weren’t around then like I was. Or if you’ve forgotten…

Thank the orange troll when it returns to this.

You should be scared

I know I am.

I am my husband’s caregiver. We live on a single disability SS check.

I cannot collect SS because, oh yes, I need 40 working hours more to get any. Can I get 40 hours? Nope, I am my husband’s caregiver and I can’t leave him alone to go work for that 40 hours I need.

Also who’s going to hire me? Yep, no one.

Why? Because quite a few years ago I ruined my work record by quitting jobs to go to Texas several times to be my sister’s caregiver/advocate.

Now we are under the threat of having what little money we have coming in getting slashed to ribbons by a misogynistic prick and his cronies.

I have a message for the orange troll.

fucking cactus prick

For what are you thankful?


     I promised Dave, that sometime this month I’d do a post on what we are thankful for, so here goes.

     I’m thankful for every moment with my Dear Hubby, the love of my life, may we have many more years ahead of us.  I’m thankful that I’m healthy.  I’m thankful that we have a roof over our heads, our mortgage is paid, and we have food on the table.  I’m thankful for the love of two silly dogs.

     I’m thankful for the love and support of my wonderful Aunts and Cousins.  Have I told you all lately how much I love you? 

     I’m thankful for all my wonderful friends who never fail to lift my spirits.  I love you guys too.

     I’m thankful to be able to follow my own path in life.

     I’m thankful to be who I am, all I’ve experienced—the good and the bad, who touched me, who I’ve touched, and for those who have gone before me.  I’m thankful for the joys of living and the lessons of loss and grief.

     I’m thankful for the people who take time out of their day to read what I write here.
