Robbie, a kid who has experienced cr.u.e.lty and a.b.u.se and has spent years in foster families, understands how older canines in asylum centers feel. The longer a kid is in foster care, the more difficult it is to adopt them. The same holds true for elderly pets from shelters. Most foster parents prefer children or puppies, but everyone needs to be loved. So, when Maria Henry Gay and her husband got Robbie, they chose to only take in older canines, even if they wouldn’t be able to spend much more time with them. They will continue to adore them for the rest of their lives. Buffy was one of the “oldest” dogs, as the family refers to the adopted dogs.
Because Buffy needed her teeth cleaned and several extracted, the doctor performed a blood test first. Sadly, the findings revealed that the senior dog had significant renal failure. The family decided that it was best to let her go before she lost her desire to live and stopped drinking and eating. Maria wanted to be sure Robbie agreed with the choice, so she picked him up from school. When she informed her son of the terrible news, he said he wanted to be the one to carry Buffy to paradise. Buffy fell asleep happily on Robbie’s lap.
The family was heartbroken, but they felt it was a good option. “When I arrived home, I told him how proud I was of him because he knew the value of taking care of elderly animals and making sure they never suffered,” Maria recounted, to which he replied, “I know what it is like not to be loved and cared for.” I never want any of my creatures to feel this way. It’s heartbreaking for us when they go to heaven. It’s a great day for them. Thank you for your admiration. “Are you all OK, Mom?”
Even though the family is mourning the loss of their lovely dog, Robbie reminded his parents that the most important thing about having a dog is how much you love it. He understands what it’s like to be unwanted for so long before finding a loving home. “You’ve only known me for two years,” he told his mother. You, on the other hand, adore me as if you’ve always been there. The family will continue to acquire elderly canines and shower them with affection. ‘Adopt rather than ‘purchase’!
