A Dog's Purpose

A Dog' s Purpose (from a ]
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a Irish wolfhound named Baker. The
dog' s owners. Ron, his wife, Lisa. and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker. and
they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Baker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn' t do anything for Baker.
and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
A: we made arrangements. Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for Shane to
observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, l felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker' s family surrounded him. Shane seemed
so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that l wondered if he understood what was going on.
Within a few minutes, Heller slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Baker' s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together
for a while after Belker' s death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than
human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly. piped up, n know why,"
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I' d never heard a more
comforting explanation. He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life - like
loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?"
The continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don' t have to stay as long.“

My American Eskimo dog, Sheba saved me when I was a baby and a rabid squirrel got into our house and tried to attack me. I would be dead if it weren't for her. She lived until she was 16 and it has been 6 years since her death. Since Sheba had been experimented on as a puppy (before being saved by my dad), she suffered from seizures. She has a seizure and fell down a flight of stairs. Because of the internal bleeding, my dad decided it was best if we put her down. Since I don't have any pictures of Sheba on my computer, I put a picture of my current dog, Starr. She resembles Sheba a lot.
