When I was younger, we had a family dog - he was mix-breed, but he was a german-shepherd and mixed with something else. Well, we had him for about 10 years or longer, and then one day we found out that he had cancer. So, we were suffering as a family with him. The hardest day ever for us when we decided to take him out of his misery and put him to sleep. It was so hard, he was like my brother because I was always with him - taking walks, feeding him, and playing catch sometimes. The thing that really hurt me was I didn't say goodbye to him on the day we put him to sleep. So, have you ever lost a pet? Such as, did it runeaway, did it pass away? Or what happened? It's so hard being close to an animal, and then "proof they're gone", it still hurts me to this day. How about you?
