This is going to be weird for some of you, but I’m about to post a serious post. I know, I rarely do these as I really hate being serious. But something has happened to a dear friend of mine that has kind of really pissed me off and I just need to vent. Again this is just me venting my opinion and thoughts, mine only.
You all know my friend Sheri. She and I have been through a lot, like a lot, like seriously a lot.
Well something truly awful happened to her… her Barkley died.
He wasn’t even 2 years old yet, and the way he died was so awful and horrible that I’m not going to tell you, honestly you don’t want to know. It would haunt you, it still haunts me.
But the most awful thing was that Sheri was there, holding him, suffering with him, through it all, all his pain and confusion and fear. And all she could do was tell him it was going to be okay and she loved him so much.
They rushed to the vet where he went immediately into surgery. At first she thought it was going to be okay, he’d made it through surgery, he was resting, come back tomorrow. Then the phone call, we’re sorry, he didn’t make it, his heart gave out, too much trauma, we’re so very sorry.
On the day Sheri received Barkley’s ashes, she also received a $2,500 vet bill.
When Sheri posted on Facebook that Barkley died, she got tons of comments, friends telling her how awful it was her puppy died, how much they loved her, how much they were thinking of her, how much they wish they could help.
So a go fund me site was set up to help her pay the vet bill.
The site has been up for almost 2 weeks and 17 people have stepped forward to help Sheri… Sheri has 467 friends on Facebook… 17 out of her 467 “friends” gave a total of $700, towards a $2,500 goal…
