    Oh, your poor baby boy :( Having to go through so much, and 13 always seems so young even though it's the average lifespan of most pups. It's far too soon. I'm glad that you made the decision to give him his angel medicine, as the vet who visited us called it. He deserved peace, even though it's very hard to make that decision. There's no point in prolonging a dog's suffering when you can end things in a dignified way. And in a bittersweet way, that also leaves room to rescue more animals who need you just as much as your old pup did, even if it takes a long time to move on and feel comfortable enough to do so.

    It only took me a month after my old dog, Tachi, died to get Briggs. But then, I was also aware that he was geriatric and not going to live much longer, so I came to terms with his death a bit easier I think. With Briggs, things went so fast so suddenly that I'm sure, especially with everything else going on, it will take me much longer to rescue another.

    Briggs passed peacefully in our backyard at around 11:30 am this May 25th, 2021. The vet was a very kind and gentle man who even cried a little over our baby's death, alongside my husband and myself. I made sure to tell him that he's doing invaluable work and that people like us need people like him. He opened up to us about his own dog passing about a month ago, and how one of his colleagues came to his home to perform the at-home euthanasia for him. He said it gave him a new respect for the practice, and renewed his love for giving pets and pet parents such an option. I hope that man lives a healthy and happy life despite his stressful and heartbreaking line of work.

    Ah now that you've refreshed my memory, I do indeed remember that it was your mother with the issues (and I know you mentioned your dad who basically acts like nothing is wrong, haha. What a strong man he must be). I also recall you saying she can be a bit of a stubborn pain, lol. People and their quirks. Glad to hear she's healing well and is doing the things she loves to do. I'm sorry to hear about your cousin, though. The fact that we both had these traumatic events happening at the same time would certainly explain why our Discord went silent. Which is fine! We both completely understand. The healing process can be hell and sometimes it's hard to keep up with things. But at least you have Prince to help get you through anything life throws at you. He's such a good and loving boy, and very beautiful.

    I'm hoping the best for you, Sam. Keep on trucking through 2021 and eventually we'll show it who's boss. Even if that means we just survive until 2022. Take that, 2021.

    Update: Briggs was rushed to the emergency room last night because he vomited blood. His blood results show that he's very unwell and his liver is in complete shutdown mode. We're calling an at-home euthanasia service to put him down as soon as we can in the comfort of his own home. I swear it can't come soon enough, my poor baby is suffering...

    It's okay that you've not replied on Discord! We each have our own lives, that unfortunately sometimes get in the way of more fun things.

    My grandmother has passed away. Died on February 21st, I'm afraid. It's been hard, but I've gotten through it for the most part. I'm certainly doing better than Mom, but my brother is doing even worse than she is. Then again, he's always been a sort of selfish and useless person who has never experienced any sort of trauma in his life, so he really doesn't know how to handle this. I guess I'm lucky in that way that I get so attached to my animals that I've been through quite a lot of trauma when they pass. It's sort of prepared me for this moment. Plus being pregnant helps. It means that I have something very, VERY important to worry about it in the meantime.

    Briggs still occasionally doesn't want to eat but he's been wagging his tail more today and will be enjoying some time in the shade of the backyard this afternoon while I brush Cocoa. We're getting the house and yard and pups ready for this Memorial Day weekend, which I think will really cheer him up. He's gained back about 5 lbs, so he's only around 5-6 lbs underweight atm. Still looks really skinny, the poor thing. The only thing we've been able to get him to consistently eat is chicken, which means I unfortunately have to purchase and prepare it. But of course I will do that for my baby to help him heal. He's off all medicine now aside from all natural chews (Zesty Paws) for a liver supplement. He doesn't willingly take it, but at least it doesn't taste horrid when it hits his tongue or he bites into it (the boy has such a big mouth that it's nearly impossible to get the pills as far down his throat as needed for him to not spit it back out).

    I hope that your lovely Prince is doing well, and that your family is, too. I recall someone in your family having some sort of mental or physical problem, though I don't recall exactly what or whom. I hope that they're well, or as well as they can be.

    It's wonderful that you've found that sanctuary! It sounds beautiful ♥ I, too, have been sticking to my vegan diet and trying to keep up with the lifestyle wherever practicable and possible. We've got such a wide range of delicious foods to eat, and we wanted our Memorial Day cookout to be purely vegan. Unfortunately, my husband's aunt is making excuses for herself (first it was "Gram won't eat it" and "Gram isn't used to it", before it very obviously became about her: "I'm wigged out by vegan food"; "I'm not used to it"), so she wants to ruin it by bringing her own hamburgers, hotdogs, and macaroni salad. I'm tempted to just deny her completely in that case. Which would be unfortunate but at the same time, it IS my house. What do you think?

    tl;dr, life is hectic atm lol

    Hey Sam! I hope you're doing all right. Especially after seeing that worrying post of yours in the Emotion thread. I'm here if you need to talk, or on Discord if you'd rather it be more private.

    Yes! New friend! Haha. Thank you so much for keeping me in mind. I love gen 7, my fav for shiny hunting. Once I start doing some serious ev training, should accumulate some more shinies and would love to do some more trading. I’m glad you like the Chansey!
    Thank you so much again Sam!
    Until next time ;)

    Thank you! It's a great series! But it's also really crazy long (60+ books across multiple sub-series and spinoffs, though of course many are plot-optional) so be prepared to make a lot of library trips :)

    hey! Too bad that you already have swirlix. I also have a blue pawniard in gen 6 and a driftloon in gen 7, if you still have some spares you'd like to trade.
    I have recently had a great streak of hunting in the friend safari but now it's kind of a slower period. I'm trying to do a spring hunt so I'm dexnav-hunting deerling in AS and then I'll hunt some flabébés in UM. Good look on your beldum hunt! I'm way too intimidated to start a pre-gen6 hunt so kudos to you!

    heyo! hope you're doing well. I caught an extra shiny swirlix so I thought I'd offer you to trade if you don't have it yet/have spare shinies you could trade away? let me know! :)

    I'd pluck a fair rose for my love

    I'd pluck a red rose blowin'

    Love's in my heart, I'm tryin' so to prove

    What your heart's knowin'

    I'd pluck a finger on a thorn

    I'd pluck a finger bleedin'

    Red is my heart, wounded and forlorn

    And your heart's needin'

    I'd hold a finger to my tongue

    I'd hold a finger waitin'

    My heart is sore, until it joins in song

    With your heart matin'
