Sometimes it doesn't feel real that Hattie is gone. I keep thinking I'm gonna wake up one morning and she'll be there. I love fostering Railroad and I love him, but things will never be the same without Hattie. I still think it's so unfair her life was stolen from her so quickly (not blaming God or her doctors, just the sickness that took her). There is so much more I want to give her but can't. I accidentally opened a picture (not this one, a different one) I took the night before she died, knowing she was sick but having no idea she was about to die. In that picture she is skin and bones with a bloated stomach, but curling up to me in bed for comfort because she'd just spent a scary two days at the vet. I wish she hadn't suffered so badly the month before she died. I wish I could make things different for her. She just should have had so much more. I hope every dog I foster and own in the future lives to be 16 and dies peacefully in their sleep.
