Goodbye my precious boxer




My boxer, May has just passed away..:(

I have been taking care of my May since she came back from the clinic after the Chinese new Year in February recently. Her two sores were cured after continuous treatment using the Chinese herbal powder. She had been eating dinner regularly. We gave her rice with leftover meat used in soup by my girl's nanny.

I gave her two slices of butterscotch bread and some milk every morning. What she did was 'eat and sleep'. She hardly played anymore. She would rather sleep.
Whenever I was at home, I would clean up her mess to make her place clean.

Three days ago, she was not eating her dinner. I had to throw it away in the morning. But when I gave her the bread, she would eat them. But yesterday morning, I could smell the stench coming from her left ear. I flipped over her ear and I saw two small holes. I was worried that maggots might have found their place there.

I cleaned her face and also tried to wipe her ears but she refused. She must be in pain.

So I decided to send her to the vet. But as usual, I don't carry dogs. My staff, Lim helped me to carry her to my car and together we sent her over. I left her with the vet as I got to work. Four hours later, I went to collect her with Lim. 

She was back to her normal place. I had to get back to work again and I decided to care for her over again. But when I reached home after 10pm, I found that she laid there motionless. She's dead!

I quickly called my husband who was still in the shop. I had to ask him to come back first before he went somewhere else. He came back with a big sack and he intended to contain her to be thrown away. I wanted her to be buried but his excuse was that we have no hoe.

Never mind..Then unexpectedly his friend called and he told him about his intention to throw the dog away. So I just walked away. When I came back in a short while, he told me that he would bury it on an empty land near his friend's place. That sounds much better.

I helped him as he carried our dog and put her in the sack. 

I couldn't help feeling sad but it's for the best anyway. It must be hard for my girl in UK too..

Rest-in-peace, my dear boxer May..
Hope you meet Dhurcy, your best friend in heaven soon..

    in my part i was sad too cause
    your story about her made me feel close to may
    and it's just sad that she didn't make it

    ReplyDelete
  19. I thought she's fine now, that why we never heard of
    her since then i though she was healed
    but then this happened well perhaps it's better for her
    to go than suffer even more

  20. we also practice burying our pets because i think they pretty
    much deserve `and beside it would be un
    pleasing for us to throw them

    ReplyDelete
