Today I had to say goodbbye to something very dear to me.....
My dog Dub. Dub came into my life about 1 year ago along with my boyfriend matt. They came into my life like a hurricane. A perfect time. I needed them both more then anything. I was going through a very tough time in my life and I believe that if it was not for them I would have never gotten through it.
My dog was amazing in many ways and bad in others. I would have to say that he was very fun and smart. he was always happy to see us, always wanted to play, was never angry with us, and loved to give me kisses.. He was no doubt my best friend. Well, my 2nd best friend besides my boyfriend. Anyways, the bads things about him were that he loved to run away. it wasn't like we didn't know where he went, he always went to the same place and that was "The Cubans" house. You see, I live in the estates and theres lots of land out there and places to run to. The funny thing is though we have an 8 ft concrete wall around our property and well we figured that once it was finished he wouldn't be able to get out and we could keep him off of his chain. We were wrong. You see at the front of the wall, by law it has to be 5ft tall. So Dub managed to figure out a way to jump over it. Therefore we couldn't let him off the chain like we wanted to. Anyways, this past sunday we went out on the boat and left him off the chain with the gates closed and sure enough he jumped the wall and headed straight for "the cubans" house. Little did we know that te cubans like to let their chickens and roosters run around on sunday's. Well we got back from th boat and went over to get dub. we had no idea he had done ne thing wrong. Until yesterday.
Matt usually takes dub out for a walk in the morning before he goes to work and doesn't put him on the chain. he usually just does his thing and then comes back inside. Well, not yesterday. YOU GUESSED he ran away. when matt went over there to get him the owner came up to him and said this," hey listen i didn't have a problem with him coming over before but on sunday he killed 1 of my chickens and 2 of my roosters and I just don't want him here anymore." well I can tell you we were very lucky he didn't involve the cops or n e thing cuz mostly thats the case.
Anyways, phil the guy we live with sat down with matt last night and talked to him. He said " You know I don't want you to resent me for this, and I don't want thigs between us to change, but dub has already tasted blood and since hes a pitbull, well we have grand kids over here all the time and I don't want n e thing bad to happen to anyone or anything. So basically you need to move out or get rid of the dog." So matt came home and told me all this. We cryed together in eachothers arms for hours. Its probably one of the hardest things I ever had to do. Knowing it was going to be last night we were all going to spend together was hard. We didn't have to say ne thing we knew how eachother felt.
So this morning I brought him in, sobbing my eyes out, he had no idea what was going on, which makes me happy because he was so concerned with all the dogs and all the people he didn't even care. I told him that he was going to find some really nice people with a big yard that were really going to take good care of him. I also told him that we would be together one day again in heaven. I strongly believe I will see him again. They said I could call and see if he found a new family buit I don't think I am going to. What i don't know won't hurt me.
Anyways, I love him, and I miss him, but we will be strong together and move on. he will always be with us in our hearts.
