Charlie by Lisa Stahl / Mom

Charlie was our first dog our family got.Found as a stray at 8 weeks old.She was so cute ,we loved her right away.Two months after we got her we adopted a brother for her that was the same age.They loved each other and did everything together.About a year later we bought a brand new house.Finally a big back yard for them to play in.I thought they would be so happy here.A few months later Charlie started to fight really bad with her brother and showing signs of aggrestion with my 6 year old son.I did’nt know what to do.

Then one day Charlie had a wound on her nose.She was treated at the vets for allergies.Then it spread to her whole body.After months of treating her she was not getting better and the vets did not know what the cause was.The weekly treatment they suggested was costly and would may not work.Given that and her history with her brother and my son I decided to have her put to sleep.It has been almost two years now and I still cry almost everyday.I keep telling my self that I made a mistake.Who was I to play god.I think I let my fear get the best of me and for that Charlie is dead because of me.I should have tried harder with her,she was only two years old.

I am so sorry Charlie,I miss you every day and will never forgive myself for what I did to you.

I love you.


With all my love
