How We Met?
Wilson came to live with me after I lost my poodle "Chance". Chance was killed by 2 dogs who attacked him in our front yard.His injuries were too severe and I had to put him down. I was devasted. All I felt was emptiness. A friend told me about a dog who needed a home because the owner didn't want him anymore, so off I went. It was hard at first because I felt like I was betraying Chance, but I knew he wouldn't want me to be so sad. What I now realize is that Wilson needed me as much as I needed him. He was neglected in more ways than one. He had no training, no shots, he was covered in fleas, he didn't even know how to play with toys, and he had a severe case of parasites. However, today Wilson is thriving. He has round the clock companionship, he's up to date on shots and he has plenty of toys that he now loves. Actually ,he could play all day. Hopefully, Wilson and I will be together for a long time.Today is July 25, 2011. Today I had to make a very painful decision to put my sweet little Wilson to sleep. On June 25, 2011, we found out Wilson had lymphoma. My sweet little guy spent the next month being King of the Castle. Lots of walks and favorite foods and got almost all of the bed to himself. Even when he was so weak, he just had to follow me, so he was carried 99% of the time this weekend. After a rough night last night, I knew I couldn't let my baby suffer. I held him and kissed him and told him I loved him for the last time as he slipped away. I had to be strong for the dog who was so strong for me. I miss my best friend deeply and I know their will never be another Wilson because will was truely the best dog in the world. I'm praying for every other dog parent who is dealing with cancer.
