Changes - Taffy, we'll always love you.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Changes Taffy, we'll always love you The first thing that I can remember clearly was about ten years ago. In my house there have always been pets, but this one was different. Taffy, the golden retriever was about eight when I first remember him, but he still had all the energy of a puppy. He was vibrant and always excited to see me, you could play all day with him, and I often did. It didn't take long for us to make a special, unbreakable bond. He was perfect in every way. People would say that there dog was just for companionship, but Taffy was much more, he was the third child of the family. He excelled at being a dog; he went further than a normal dog could ever go.

When at the hospital he was diagnosed with leukaemia. It was awful that he be struck down at such an early time of his life with such a ravenous sickness. ...read more.

Conclusion

Luckily the doctor got a message on his pager and he decided to leave it for another day. Many times this happened, sometimes with biting, they even tried it in her sleep, but still no luck. It got to a point when only the most doctors and nurses would even approach her. My mum managed to persuade her that the tonsils had to come out, and she would've gone home sooner if she hadn't resisted. She may of broke her down when she mentioned that she will have ice cream everyday. Obviously the recovery period was into weeks rather than days. I apologise if the essay seems a little short, but it has been very difficult just to get the memories to resurface. Also I occasionally forgot what I was writing about mid way through, so I had to start writing a new thing to be changed and not that many events have happened to me which I haven't already put in childhood memories.
