i just found out today that one of the dogs that i dog-sat for a few weeks ago died this weekend. the owners were out of town and there was a girl house-sitting and watching the dogs, just like i did a couple weeks ago. they wanted me to do it, but since they're going to be gone for a couple weeks at the end of may, and i won't be able to do it, they found someone else for the weekend as sort of a "test run." the older dog started breathing really weird and was whining, so the girl took her to the vet. but she didn't make it. apparently she had a collapsed lung and a tumor. sad day. not only that, but when the girl put the dog in the car to take her to the vet, the puppy ran away. she's so used to having the older dog watch out for her, she didn't know what to do. i'm just really thankful that i wasn't the one in charge. i'd have been freaking out. it's so sad.
