Robin’s special…

ever know how it feels to lose someone or something that really mattered to you?! what if you realized how you took them for granted after you’ve already lost them…

that is actually how i felt when i lost Robin…

for the seven years that he’s been with us, he was the most special among them all… my family loved him… i remember him greeting me when i arrive home, he would be playful sometimes, but i know he wouldn’t hurt me by that… actually, i don’t remember him hurting anybody! he’s very friendly, but people have mistaken this friendliness with hostility… well, who wouldn’t?! you cannot really tell by his tone if he’s angry or just happy to see you!

he knows when you feel sad, and he would show you, in his way, some affection… i know that he didn’t come from a distinguished family, but he was very well-mannered. he knows when you’ve stepped on someone else’s territory, or when he has crossed the line between doing what’s right and what’s not… actually, he’s very affectionate, that it’s irritating sometimes…

he died last saturday, and he was at peace. he didn’t show any signs that he was hurting, but i kinda felt his pain… i hear him vomit sometimes, a few days before he died, but i thought he was just choking or something… but then, after that, he seem to have lost his appetite… my mom tried giving him some medicine, but he won’t take it… one time, he was resting, i can see his chest rising up and down so fast, like his heart’s racing. then my brother saw his belly, and he has a wound… if my mom had only seen that wound, maybe she could’ve treated it before it got worse, just like his wounds before…

sunday morning, i saw our dog, Robin, laying lifeless in a corner in our backyard… he died peacefully… i’m so sad, that as i write this, it makes me shed a few tears…

we remembered him… like how much he loves sardines… or how he plays with us, like he would bark and bark, but then he was just being affectionate… he really made us all secure inside the house… i remember, Bro. Vic told us that when he was calling out for my mom, Robin was barking on him by the gate, then would bark by our door. Bro. Vic knew that someone was inside because of how Robin barked by our door, and I WAS inside! He was really smart…  he was truly man’s best friend… he’s truly a part of our family…
