My dog, Miss V – a beautiful Shetland Sheepdog (1991 – 2005). When I was younger, I didn’t know how to spend more time with her. She got sick and that’s when I knew I had made one of my biggest regret.
I fed her (cookies my mum baked) while she was lying down, she made a mess and I got a little frustrated. I swear, I wasn’t mad at her. I was only mad at something else which caused me to show my frustration. She would have felt it, I really regret my action up till this day. Had I been older, I would have known how to better control my emotions.
If I could speak dog language, I would tell her that I’m sorry and me getting mad wasn’t because of her. I love her so much and I would not want her to feel otherwise.
Thinking of this incident, never fail to bring me to tears…
Now that I have another dog (also a Shetland Sheepdog), I have learnt how to spend more time and get myself more involved with her.
For I do not want to make the same regret.
