My dog Baby

My little dog Baby was euthanized today (any other euphemism just won't work for me). She had been having seizures for almost a year now, likely caused by a brain tumor, and in recent months, they had been getting very bad. The medication was no longer working. She also didn't seem to know us, she didn't like to be touched and she wouldn't seek out her food or water. For the last two weeks, we had been taking her food to her and the only water she would consume was what was absorbed into her food. So this weekend we decided that it was her time. So this afternoon my mom and I took her to the vet to have her euthanized and then we brought her home and buried her in the backyard. Her grave is lined with bricks and I'll make a stone for it soon. She was fourteen years old.
