This afternoon our pet dog named Lena died Because Lena was senile. Lena had difficulty walking because of her feet's bad condition for five to six years. It was a pleasure for the three of us, my husband Lena and I, taking for a walk nearby Lena did not eat for two days and had difficulty standing. I supported Lena's body when I brought her to the neighborhood, but Lena seemed to be very weak. I felt that Lena will die soon at that time. I felt the coming of Lena's death. I prayed to God that Lena will die without suffering. 愛犬レナが逝ってしまいました。 まだ悲しみと涙の中にいます。 多くの人がこんな別れを経験されているのですね。 私はこの淋しさを乗り越えられるでしょうか... 老衰だったけど最期は死の意味を教えてくれたレナでした。
This evening my son and his family visited my house. They brought a dog together. That dog is still a puppy and it is so cute. The dog is a member of their family.
My son lost their dog, which had been a part of their family for about 5 years, because of a sickness. That dog had a serious sickness and stayed in the hospital for a long time. But, unfortunately, the dog died. They felt very sad about the dog's death. Then my son and his wife said that," Our dog's death caused so much pain to us".
I knew that they spent a lot of money for their dog. I thought that their money can save their dog's life but it didn't. Even if their dog died it does not mean that they will be sad forever.
They bought a new puppy. Now, because of the new puppy they became happy again.
I saw a dog in front of the supermarket. The dog was tied to the entrance.
I remembered about a certain dog. It happened when I was working in a department store. A white dog went inside the shop and ran all around the shop. The people inside the shop were confused and surprised. The dog seemed to be looking for it's owner. The clerk went after the dog. But no one can catch the dog. I caught the dog.
I brought the dog to the guard room. I worried about the dog all day. The dog was still there even after closing hours. I asked the doorman about the dog. He said “ I’ll bring this dog to the police station.” I said “ I want to bring this dog to the police station.”
I asked the police man “ what will you do about this dog from now on?” He said “ If we can't find the dog’s owner, we will bring the dog to the animal center.” It means the dog will die soon. The dog was abandoned.
And then I brought the dog to my house by taxi. My husband got angry. Because we have a dog and three cats.(7 years ago one of our cat died) We were so busy at that time. But we took care of the dog.
One day my husband took a walk with Rena( our dog) and the new dog. The neighbor told my husband “ do you have another dog?” My husband explained what happened to the dog.
And then the neighbor said “ I want to have the dog!” And the dog stayed to neighbor’s house. The dog was named “ Hakase”. But the dog ran away and went back to my house. The dog was ran away many times. But finally the dog stayed at our neighbor’s house.
My dog Rena couldn’t stand and couldn’t eat for 5 days. This happened for the third time so we prepared for the worst. I stroke Rena’s body many hours every day and my husband do so. Rena was covered with excrement (poop) yesterday morning. I cleaned Rena’s body and mat. I was in trouble because Rena is so big. I exercise my dog Rena in walking with my husband. We can try carrying our dog with rope for dog. Rena could walk a little then we were surprised. I thought it’s a miracle. Because 5 days ago Rena almost died... She still alive!
My dog Rena couldn’t stand up yesterday evening. She also vomitted everything that she has eaten. This happend the third time.
But she had once survived and have fought death twice. We have no choice but to accept it because she is now very old. Rena couldn’t eat food anymore. Death is at hand. As I said " Thank you Rena" in my mind, while stroking her, tears welled up in my eyes.
