Today was such a hard day for me; I lost the closest thing I had to family. I lost my dear friend and companion Scruffy. That old dog was a part of me, the only thing I ever really loved and now he’s gone. I knew he was old and in pain but I just couldn’t bear to let him go, he meant too much to me. I really can’t believe he’s gone. Well today started off just as normal, Scruffy and I going about our usual routine, just minding our own business but it seemed Carlson took a particular annoyance at Scruffy’s smell. I know he smells, but it’s just because he’s old, he can’t help it. Carlson started to complain saying that I should just put ol’ Scruff outta his misery but I didn’t think anything of it until Slim and George agreed with him.
