Cava

I don't really want to talk about this right now, but I feel compelled to mention it. I found out a few hours ago from my mom that our dog, Cava, died. He had just turned seven years old. Basically, one day he was healthy and the next day he couldn't even walk, so my parents took him to the emergency vet yesterday and it turned out he had cancer all over his body. They had to put him to sleep the same day.


He wasn't my childhood dog; he wasn't my favourite dog. But he was a cute dog, a sweet dog, a good dog.

Losing a pet is tough. I have a friend who has a golden retriever that's been battling cancer for over a year now. It's been a rough time for her and her husband and kids. They've had the dog longer than the kids! Hope you and your family are doing okay.

Oh honey, I'm so sorry for you and your family. Cava looks like a beautiful, happy doggy, and I'm sure he had 7 wonderful years, and that he is now comfortable. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is hard, no matter what.

If it helps, all dogs really do go to heaven.

Losing a pet is never easy and I can imagine for some (as it would be for me) it's one of the hardest things there is. Big hugs to you, Jess.

Cava was gorgeous. Losing a pet is so hard.

Can you tell that I'm making my way through your meme? And that I'm easily distracted?
