My brother’s family has Covid even though they’re all vaxxed. Ten days after my brother’s first symptom, the dog got sick. You remember the dog, right? I pet sat Fido and Mr. Kitty a few months ago. Well, Fido’s not been doing well for awhile now. And suddenly his back legs weren’t able to hold him up at all, right on the day my brother was out of quarantine for Covid.
The ER vet said that he could get a prescription to help the dog for another month or so, but they decided to finally let the dog go. Just shy of fifteen years is a long time with a beloved pet so it was hard, but thankfully they did it.
My SIL called the vet and asked a huge favor – that she could be there even though she was positive and the vet allowed it. Outside only on the grass with huge precautions, she was able to be with my brother and Fido as he passed.
The whole family was really sad about Fido’s passing, but it had gotten really hard for Fido and I was glad that they let him go. And my brother is such a good guy, he went out and got my SIL’s favorite chocolates and flowers to give to her from Fido as he knew she didn’t want to let Fido go, but that it was time. He’s an awesome guy.
I asked my SIL if she told Mr. Kitty about Fido’s passing as I’m sure Mr. Kitty is wondering where his favorite dog friend is. But she thought I was nuts to even think that…I don’t know. I talk to my pets.
