The Way It Is
They were on Cannon Street East, slowly crossing Victoria Avenue North, and just as they were about to get to the other side the girl’s little buddy just collapsed there and refused to go any further. She coaxed and pleaded but it was to no avail.
The amount of grey in the poor thing’s hair told the tale. The dog was far from being a pup, and the girl was destined to continue the journey without her lifelong friend being able to by its own steam. This was apparently the last walk they were taking together.
I know what it’s like to lose a dog. It’s one of the saddest moments in life, and seeing the life drama of this broken pair, broke my heart.
