- i was in a small cage, hiding from all the strange people. there was no point in trying to get attention, i was middle aged and a little sick. i watched as all the people went to go see the puppies. suddenly, i saw a little girl coming my way. all the dogs were barking at her, giving her directions to where the puppies were located. i rested my head on my paws. for some odd reason she walked up to my cage. i got up and padded over to her. she stuck her hand in and i started licking it, telling her hello. her father the came up to her. he saw me and yelled for someone. soon a lady and a little boy came over to me. they were talking to a guy who worked here. the guy suddenly opened up the cage, put a leash on me and walked me over to the family. he gave the other end of the leash to the man. we then walked out of the pound. the ride home was a happy moment for me. finally someone wanted me. i was no longer just a dog, i was their dog. the boy was hugging me. months past by and i thought of the people as more than my owners, but my actual family. the lady was my mom, the man was my dad. and the boy and girl where my own childern. they gave me the name tucker. i always loved it when they called for me. it was always funny when mom got mad at me for chewing up my shoes. how she would just shake her head and say, "what am i gonna do with you?" months later they got a kitten. her name was lucky. the little girl loved the kitten and so did i. me and lucky would spend hours playing tag. but as happy as i was, i was still sick. my conditions got worse each day. i started having a breaks, and go insane at least once a day. mom and dad started takeing me to the vet. i soon ended up hurting the people i truely loved. the look of fear on the little girl's face made me cry. i was a monster, but still the family never gave up on me. they soon tried finding a better family for me, one that would be able to take care of me, and could aford all the medicen. but the realality was that i was dieing. mom and dad feared that i would die in front of the girl and boy, so did i. they really loved me, but couldnt keep me alive forever. mom and dad had to have me put down, but dad didn't have the heart to take me in. neither did mom, but she had to do it anyways. she took me to the vet. the vet took out the needle. mom started breaking out into tears. she kept on repeating "i'm sorry" i licked her hand one last time. the vet peirced into my skin with the needle. as i died i remebered to first time i've ever seen the family. the look on the little girl's face when i licked her hand, how the boy would cuddle with me. now it was time for me to say good-bye to them all, but it won't always be good-bye. i will wait for them for as long as it takes, and i hope to be in their hearts always. good-bye for now.
