A Few More Days

As I look at sweet, tiny, Melody, I understand she may only be here for a few more days.  It brings up thoughts of a bucket list like others have shared with their pet.  We all know the bucket list is for us.  Realistically, at the end of life, who has the strength, will, or desire to fulfill a list of any kind.  Melody certainly doesn’t.  I believe her bucket list has been fulfilled over the past 8 years when she went from the shelter to my arms.

It’s heartbreaking to be at this point in time; yet, there’s no time for questions and/or thoughts of what I could have done or what I could do to give her more than just a few more days.  Melody may rally and surprise me with a few more weeks.  That would be wonderful.  I’m also realistic that at 15-17 years of age, she doesn’t deserve to be in pain or discomfort.  She deserves respect, love, and compassion.  I, on the other hand, have to be courageous enough to do what is right for her.

So, I ask for a few more (good) days.  Love to all reading this.
