Close family of mine recently lost their dog. The dog collapsed, but was still alive. He was brought to an emergency clinic, he needed an operation.
This operation would cost them 3000 euros. But, it was easter. Because it was easter, the price went up from 3000, to 7000. Such money they could not
pay, and it was chosen best to put the dog to sleep
Yesterday, my dog collapsed during a walk on the street, not able to walk, and barely able to breath, he was only 9 years old. We dialed the emergeny
number straight away, who put us forward to animal services. they were on their way. However, after 20 mins, still not a sign of them. The dog died in
my mothers arms, with me and my brother present. Later we heard, the crew could not find our house due to their TomTom acting funny. Could my dog have
been saved if they were on time, maybe yes. But that's irrelevant now, he has already passed from this world. He died of a heart attack, poor baby.
It was a small white maltezer. the feeling of not having him anymore cuts me open.
Last year my father saved a bird from death, and brought it to the animal services. The bird could have been saved, but they did not want to put in
the time or the effort to save him, so they put him to sleep.
This world is harsh, and cruel.
