In December I lost my dog Buddy who was a husky/shepherd mix. A day before I was to come home from school for winter break he passed away. I knew he was going downhill for a while. My family tried their best to keep him around until I got home, but he didn't make it. We probably would have put him down when I got home if he was still around. It was a rough day after I got the call in the morning from my mom. It was rough when I went to the animal hospital to see his body one last time before being cremated. I felt I had to see him one last time. He was very special to me. I was the one who picked him and named him. Also, his birthday was in the same month as mine, June. I still really miss him.
