A Huge Chunk Of My Heart Is Sad For A While Now


koffy and daddy

Koffy's been sick for the last 6 months now. And it's been half a year that my heart is aching for this beautiful creature. I find it hard to talk about him and his whole condition without thinking of the negative possibilities. Jayson and I are doing our best to take care of him and we've come to a point of not talking about Koffy anymore but just to do our routine to keep him strong and happy. 

Koffy's gone blind now. 

And I've been crying since then. It's so hard not to. His beautiful brown eyes turned into a lifeless sad color of gray a couple of weeks ago due to his liver disease. He's taking so much medication. So much I don't think his body can take them anymore. It just breaks my heart on those nights I hear him cry. We'd hug him and pray for him. I want him to live forever. He's a dog, my dog, he's sweet. If he's a person, he'd be perfect. We love him so much. Maybe I am being selfish here, or I'm stupid not to think that dogs don't live long like humans do. Maybe that's his only fault - his life is short. Maybe if God favors me he'd make him see again and give him twenty more years. I know I'm asking too much but that's all I can do right now, to ask for so much more. And please if you're reading this, say him your prayers of healing. And if it's not too much, pray for me too, to have a big strong heart to accept graciously what's to come. 

Please...

Thank you.

Because, I'm kind of broken lately. And i feel that it's not good for my family.

Shucks. Naiiyak ako. I don't like hearing or reading about pets getting sick.

Just continue showering Koffy with your love. He might not be able to see you guys but I'm sure he feels your love. I'll pray for you and Koffy.

Just stay strong. Koffy would love to see you happy. and spend happy times with his family. He's a sensitive dog I know, surely feels when you're happy, mostly when you're sad. :) Be his strength sis. He'll be happier.

Prayers for Koffy and for you, his family.

I'm always touched with pet stories. They do make our lives more worthwhile.

I'm so sorry to hear about Koffy. I don't care what some people say pets are a part of the family. Their love is unconditional and they're always there when you need someone to listen to you and if you need someone to hug. They call the dog a man's best friend for good reason.

Just hug him when he cries. He must be so scared sometimes. I pray that he will be comfortable.
