My Soul Dog Died

I do animal rescue and animal control.  I received a call for a dog left in an abandoned house.  Long story short, I rescued the dog.  He had been in the house for two months - drinking out of the toilet to survive!  His owners had tortured him - they admitted it.  I took him home.  He was WONDERFUL.  Everyone who saw him called him my husband and asked me how I trained him so well.  I never trained him, we just loved each other.  He got sick one day, so we went to the vet.  He was diagnosed with cancer.  Four days later he was dead.  I had started chemo, had an appointment with a veterinary oncologist, an appointment with a veterinary homeopath, had ordered chinese herbs, had cancer specific crystals in a bag on his collar... I never had the chance to fight his cancer, and he was gone.  I've worked with about 1000 dogs over the last ten years, but this one was my special dog.  I miss him more than I ever thought it would be possible to miss any person or animal.  But I'm so lucky I had him for almost two years.
