No More Sickness. No More Pain. 

  

There was a death in our family today. Her name was Odie. She belonged to my mom, stepfather and my brother.
I have never encountered a dog with such a sweet, gentle soul. But now, at the age of 12, she has been found to be in complete organ failure. 
And just a few hours ago she took her very last breath. 
My little brother called and I answered to find him sobbing into the receiver. And of course that set me off. My little brother is special needs and his level of understanding is not the same as mine or yours.  But Odie’s death is straight cut. No explanation is required for Bradley to understand this. His dog is dead. 
And he is waiting for us right now to go over and see precious little Odie, to give her one last kiss ……..
Goodbye, little one. 

Goodbye.

About Secret Stains

I wanna do something that matters, say something different, something that sets the whole world on it's ear. i wanna do something better with the time I've been given and I wanna try to touch a few hearts in this life to prove I was here. I apologize if I seem absent minded sometimes. Sometimes I forget I'm still awake and say things out loud. Inside I am beginning to burst at the seams. There are so many secrets ... so many scars ... so many stains. This is me. Welcome to my world.

    I am so very sorry for your family’s loss! Losing a furry family member is every bit as hard (and for some, harder) as losing a human family member. 😢
