Jet.... My Friend Rip

I was very very sad about my dog I had him put to sleep some years ago.....


I cried every time I thought about him for what seamed to be for ever, not now though well there is one little thing that makes me fill up.  His name was Jet I had him from a puppy @10 weeks old and I had him put to sleep at 15 years old..........

 

We went everywhere together if he couldn't go I didn't go he came to work with me and slept in my bed with me in the winter when it really was cold......

 

So when we went to the vet on the day he was put to sleep, The vet said "ok no problem leave him with us and we will deal with it"  No way I say,  we have been everywhere together all this time i'm not going to leave him in a strange place with strange people at his age to die frightend, I want to be with him as I am sure he would want me with him too.........

 

The vet showed me into a room with a table I lifted Jet up onto the table and he laid down, eye's smiling and tail wagging as it always is, I can't think of a time when I have seen it not wagging apart from when we are in the wood's and Jet catches the scent of a little animal or deer that he want's to flush out.... Then he is off but the tail is going round and round in big circles as he charges into the bush.........

 

 

The vet returned with a syringe filled with a blue liquid that looked like something I would have put in my car to stop the water freezing,  the vet put his hand on Jet's fur and ask me "ok?"  I said yes and he continued to push the needle into his skin, as the plunger forced the killer liquid into Jet and as it slowly drained away something drained away inside of me..... 

 

Once the liquid had gone the vet left the room, I had the time to fuss my friend his eye's still smiling and tail still wagging struggling to deal with the situation.........

 

The stuff started to take effect, with my hand on Jet I can feel his skin kind of sag the life drained  out of it,  but his tail it still wag's...........

 

Jet laid his chin down on the table between his feet fighting his to keep his eye's open, his tail still wagging.  His eye's close and his tail slowly drops to the table and he is gone.  I look at him he look's asleep, I feel I had done the right thing at the right time as I am sure Jet was happy for this to happen as I know I have given him the happiest, healthiest and loving life that I could possibly give as he did for me........

 

The vet enters the room once more and I try to thank him but I cannot speak the event was to much for me, I have to pay but the receptionist tells me my card has expired, struggle to ask them to bill me this is torcher I wanted to get out of there and I did, I sat in my car and cried like a little girl, I couldn't stop all the times, walks, beaches , wood's, and occations flooding into my mind......... 

 

You know one of the reaszons I loved my dog is ( it might sound silly ) but he never judged me and was alway's pleased to see me however sshitty he may have been feeling.......
