I Miss My Dog and How She Doctored Me

vet pet clinic

I ran across this post from last year.  I have been thinking of my dog constantly.  After passing away in May, I have not been able to find my new normal in my house without her.  It’s posts like this that are a perfect reminder of how important she was to all of us.  Our constant patient advocate!

In my house, we doctor my dog and she doctors me……

This is going to be a short and sweet post. I’ve been sick since Christmas and my brain is feeling less than creative. In fact, it’s down right stuffy, pained, exhausted, a bit sad, stressed and frustrated.

So I thought I’d share a fur baby and girl baby story that I think many of you will appreciate….

As I sat with a sinus infection, while experiencing side effects from new meds and my son being sick with constant meltdowns, I watched my daughter “doctor up” my dog yesterday.

All she wanted from Santa was a pet vet clinic, she loves animals! I watched my dog wait in the waiting room (yes, that’s my SensaCalm weighted blanket on the couch that I have been hibernating under while I’m sick! Get 10%off using my affiliate linke with code: MYMIGRAINELIFE)

Then she was seen by the doctor

That evening I missed a big traditional family dinner. As I sat in my dark room, my dog held my hand and kept me company for hours.

The head pain of migraine is really extreme! All of the other things really suck! And there are a lot of other things (body aches, nausea, cold hands/feet/nose, etc)! One of the hardest things is being alone and missing out. It’s really hard!

My dog is more than a dog, especially during these times. She is my sanity and a soul that is literally by my side during dark times. Anyone who has cried holding their pet can understand the depths of this bond.

I’m so proud that my daughter is such an avid animal lover. She gives and receives love in the biggest way and has the biggest heart. Seeing her show the love and compassion is something really special! ❤️❤️

Anyone else spending extra time with their fur baby being sick this Winter break?

Am I the only one fighting being sick while having sick children?

    I’m so sorry, I can tell how much she meant to you and my heart aches for your loss. I still think of my dog, little Rob, who we had to say goodbye to years ago but it still hurts. She’ll always be a part of your heart and your life ♥ xxxx
