Everything takes three times as long as you expect it to take
I think it’s a rule
Even bad dogs break your heart when they go to the Bridge. Lily-bad-dog chased Max, and jumped on Max and didn’t like Max and Max was afraid of her. But when she died today, we cried. Even bad dogs have families who love them. Lily’s daddy is heartbroken. He never saw any bad in her, he never saw anything but good. He loved her so much. She got cancer and he did everything he could to make her better. It didn’t work. I knew it wouldn’t, but he had to try anyway. And when the time came, he sent her to the Bridge, the gentlest way he could.
And then he cried. We cried with him.
