Next week me and my parents are going to have to put our dog down, shes a golden retreiver and shes going to be 1 week off her 14th birthday . She's been through everything with me, being around me when i was 5.. Now being 19 i've grown up with her around and although i'm a 'guy' and i shouldn't 'cry' i just keep getting myself in an absolute state. We're going to have her crommated and her ash's put in a nice urn to sit at the bottom of the stairs (where she always slept). I just don't know what to do with myself, she's not gone yet but even thinking about it is killing me.. I love her to bits (her names Lucy btw) and 14 years is a hell of a long time.. I've been thinking back to my past, and in thinking of the dog when i was younger i've managed to remember alot of my past, as weird as that sounds. I even remember running round my nan and grandads garden when i was 6 chasing after her then falling over and cutting my knuckle open.. Which is weird again as it would explain where this mark came from on my hand, i aways thought it was a birth mark.
Anyway, i just want to keep my mind busy for the next few weeks but i've got hardly any money.. When i was younger i always played about with something called 'ant weight robots' using from old gear from having a few R/C cars.. I've still got my old car and buggy so i don't want to buy another cheap R/C car or anything like that.. I love building things, keeping my hands busy (no sexual jokes please, really not the right time) i just wondered if you guys had any idea's on whats quite cheap and might keep me busy for a little while?
I've had a few hamsters and a rabbit and stuff, unfortunatly due to there nature they've only lived about 2 years but this is something else, its like the dog's a sister to me.. anything the family did, she did with us. People keep saying 'she must have been well looked after as 14 is a good age for a dog' but that still doesn't ease the pain
Sorry if i've brung up any previous memories for others, i just wanted to give the hole story so i didn't get any people replying just saying '****' or something like that.
Thankyou peeps, Mark.
