Down Below: A True Story by Mantrid_Brizon

Down Below: A True Story


This is a recollection of a painful incident that happened just the other day. Writing about it somehow made it a little easier to deal with. Though there is no swearing or gore and therefore rated "General", it recalls the finality of death. If anything, it is a cautionary tale to all readers; cherish your loved ones while you still have them, because they can vanish in an instant.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, some people have no idea how much dogs mean to a person. There aren't any words I can say to make it better, but I won't lie, this really did make me cry. Just the part where you wanted to make it look like he was sleeping in his grae, my closest friend for 8 years passed away over christmas, and when we went to lie her down all I could think about was posing her to look like she was sleeping. Best of luck, and if you need to talk to someone, I'm here.

      Thank you for your concern, and I appreciate that. It always bothered me when people said that I had a dog, because he was so much more to me. Only those of us who had to suffer such a loss will really understand. Likewise, if you ever need someone to talk too, I'm the easiest and least judgemental person I know of. :)
