364. BIMBA

We are so sad. Our dog Bimba died.

Come back to us again
She was such a happy dog and also gave us so much happiness.
As soon as we arrived home, she would be there waitng for us to say hello and to pet her.

Now the house seems so empty without her. We miss her so much that it hurts.
She was part of our family. She couldn´t talk, but her eyes told us so many things.
However, we knew she was seroiusly ill when we took her to the Vet. She had something in her stomach which was slowly killing her.
Many times she threw up after eating something. Sometimes we didn´t know what food to give her.
In the end we had to hand feed her using a small spoon…just like feeding a baby.
We had to try opening her mouth to feed her, but sometimes it wasn´t easy.
The last few days she didn´t even want to drink any water, so we had to give her water using a syringe…and that wasn´t easy for her to swallow the water.
As I was walking the other day, I ran into our vet and I told him that Bimba didn´t want to get up and drink water.
He told me we should think of putting her to sleep.
We didn´t know what to do. That was such a difficult decision.
We just wanted to have her with us as much as possible.
The other morning as she was lying in her bed in the living room…..and she died in her sleep.
I touched her and tried to close her eyes.
She seemed like she was sleeping in peace.
I gave her a kiss on her head.
I still have that image imprinted in my mind, or when I had to carry her in my arms because she couldn´t walk.
I try to convince myself that I must be happy for her because she´s not suffering anymore.
I don´t know if re-incarnation exists, but if it does, I hope Bimba will re-incarnate and maybe come back to us as another dog because I´m sure she will still remember how much we love and miss her.

  1. hi Alan!
    I am terribly sorry!
    I have had cats since I was a child, so I can understand you feelings very well.
    They are part of the family and we are lucky for having them whit us.
    I wish we coudl do the same with our relatives and help them to die with peace and dignity!
    people who love animals are especial and nice.
    and not all the people who own animals take care of them. I can´t understand how people can be so bad with them.
