On December 22nd, my girlfriend unexpectedly had to put her dog, Angel, down.
I accompanied her to the vet, which was two hours away, and the doctor’s prognosis was that the dog had a large tumor across the front of her neck, and she recommended a veterinary hospital to visit.
The following day, we were able to take her dog to the hospital, which was earlier than the original appointment we had had. When my girlfriend put angel in the backseat beside me, she was in worse shape than the day prior. This time she was drooling a ton and wouldn’t even prop herself up; she just lied beside me. I petted her head for a bit while my girlfriend drove, but then after about fifteen minutes, Angel started coughing a lot and had a seizure. She was gagging on her saliva. The rest of the drive to the hospital was very stressful.
Once upon a time, in 1896, there was a little boy named Sailor Jack. He had a dog named Bingo. Sailor Jack and Bingo lived on a ship with Sailor Jack’s dad, Captain Frederick William Rueckheim. Sailor Jack, Bingo, and Captain Frederick William Rueckheimwere traveling from Germania to The Land of the Corn to expand his father’s snack business. While Captain Frederick William Rueckheimand the rest of the crew were doing their duties, Sailor Jack and Bingo would run around the ship, playing pirates, looking for buried treasure, and saving damsels in distress. Sailor Jack always wanted to be a pirate because unlike sailors, they have so many adventures and they’re wealthy. Captain Frederick William Rueckheimhated it when Sailor Jack pretended to be a pirate because pirates attack sailors, although they have been fortunate enough to not be attacked on their journey.
One foggy afternoon, Sailor Jack and Bingo were playing pirates; Bingo started barking because he had seen something in the distance.
“What is it, boy?” Sailor Jack asked, calmly petting Bingo’s ears which were sticking up in alertness.
Bingo continued to bark relentlessly as Sailor Jack stared off into the horizon, finally spotting the looming ship.
“A ship!” exclaimed Sailor Jack. “Maybe it’s a pirate ship!”
