Xiao Bai, RIP

Our beloved pet dog passed away “not so peacefully” this morning. He must be too saddened that Steve Jobs is leaving on his own and decided to accompanied him to a better place.

Every single days will not be the same again without you wagging your tails, greeting us ‘good morning‘ or ‘welcome home‘. Although my sandals and slippers will no longer be part of your diet but you will forever be missed.

For few months, he had not been feeling well. He didn’t bark at visitors or passerby, weighed down, loss of appetite and more. Before he passed away, he had been skipping his meals for two days straight. On Saturday morning, he vomited and couldn’t move at all. We could hear his heavy breathing even from inside of our house.

Gor drove around the area looking for vet that is willing to put him to sleep as we could not bear seeing him in this state. Unfortunately, none of them are willing to. He turned to his friends and they told him to let the dog be. Another friend even suggested to play Buddhist chants so that he will pass sooner. Since we couldn’t get a vet, that was the only option. Gor slept in the living room the entire night.

Until this morning… his breathing worsen. Gor went to nearby vet and drove him to our house to put him to sleep… and waited until he breathed his last. We buried him in our workshop, along with the Buddhist chant player, still playing.

At night, Belle kept asking “Where is Doggy?”
