★I Love You Forever, My Cooneyhound★

Today has to have been one of the most hardest days in my life.  Today we lay to rest our dog, Simon. I say our because he was the dog of the family I lived with before I moved in with me, and he was my boyfriend's dog just as much as mine. Simon touched everyone's heart, especially ours. Simon is/was my Treeing Walker Coonhound, and we just clicked. We were inseparable. Even when I had him over at grandma and grandpa's house, I missed him so much! We both had separation anxiety from each other.

 Anyways, this was not a impulse decision, and while on social media he seems fine, he was not. Simon had multiple issues wrong with him, and just some that we are not able to fix. He was older than we thought, and he lived throughout his life expectancy but it's still hard to think that I no longer will come home to that wagging tail. I was hoping to have a photo of him and I together wearing caps for when I graduated, but I knew that it was time. I could see it in his eyes, and there was just too much going on inside of him for him to continue on.

So, here is where I am going to end this blog before I begin blubbering again. Simon was not just a dog, he was family. He helped me through the toughest times in my life, and was there to support me when I just needed someone to be with me. I am not intending on getting another dog anytime soon, and probably won't until we find  better place and I am out of school. We donated some money to the shelter for the charity event that was happening and wrote Simon's name on the card to honor him. We are also donating all of his old things to the shelter because Simon would want us to help out other dogs, and to help the shelter.

Simon: We love you so much, and forever will miss you.  Words cannot explain how much we hurt but we are okay, and we just wanted you to not feel pain anymore. We are thankful for the joy that you've brought to our lives and will never forget you. R.I.P
