I try to aim for pretty long chapters without giving you all too much to read. I know my latest chapter titled “Grief” was shorter than usual, and I’d like to apologize for that.
Yesterday I was in the middle of updating, when my brother stopped over bringing over his dog so he could play with my puppy. Not long ago we had began to feed a stray cat, and we let her in. A couple of days later she birthed 6 kittens in my daughter’s bed. Anyways, that was about 4-5 weeks ago. While we were getting ready to take the dogs on a walk my daughter opened the door to her bedroom to get her shoes and one of the kittens dashed out and was snapped up into my brothers dogs jaws. He ripped her throat open and my daughter and I watched my brother wrestle the dog off and saw the little baby choking to death and dying. Every time I close my eyes I keep seeing it happen over and over again, and my daughter and I cried ourselves to sleep last night.
My puppy loves the kitties and he would never hurt one. In fact, he would lay with the kitties and groom and lick them. It breaks my heart because they weren’t afraid of dogs, and if they had been maybe it would still be alive.
I’m sorry for this depressing post. My boyfriend says they are just cats and animals die all the time, but it was horrible, and horrible for my daughter to witness. I will make an extra long update on the next chapter, and I’ll try to make up for what that chapter was lacking. I just didn’t have the heart to finish it last night, so I posted what I had and that was it.
