"Sir I'm sorry to say, but your dog haves a disease called Distemper" said veterinarian,

"Distemper? What is that?" I asked, the veterinarian looked sadly at me and said

"Distemper. Around the world, more dogs die from distemper than any other infectious disease. This highly contagious virus is spread by direct contact or through the air. A hale and hearty dog can survive distemper, usually with relatively mild symptoms. On the other hand, your dog's immune system isn't and cannot fight the disease, her whole body is overwhelmed by the virus, as well as bacteria that jumpedbin to cause secondary infections."

"So my wife's dog from when she is a baby is going to die?" I basically yelled at the veterinarian.

He nodded his head while saying "Sadly yes."

I looked down at my shoes, tears coming to my eyes "Can't you do anything to stop it or no?" my voice cracking at the end

"Sir there is no way to cure your dog. Do you want to put her down or take her home?" he said it all casual like this was nothing I don't know he could stand there and watch my wife's, an I best friend lie there and die.

"Please...I'm about to become a father, both my wife's and my parents are coming to visit, I'm also bout to get married, and now your telling me there is no damn cure to this disease?!?"

"Sir I am really sor-" "If you were really sorry for me, then you would be and there fixing my damn dog!!" I was getting angrier by the second with that idiot still just standing there right when i was bout to scream at the guy someone called me

"Jack, let the poor man do his job." Maria looked over at the guy an says "I'm so sorry for the way my Fiancé is acting."

"That's no problem Mrs., just doing my job." the veterinarian said.

Maria looked over at me, both of her hands on the side of my face her eyes show sadness, hope, and love.

"Honey I'm sorry, but there is no other way to cure Shadow. Do you want to take her home and bring her back?" I asked Maria

A tear slipped out of her eye I wipped her tear away, she nodded her head to my question.

"Excuse me sir we would like to take my dig home with us and we will bring her back." I told the veterinarian, he nodded and brought back Shadow our wonderful dog.


I opened the door for my wife, and Shadow, "Baby I'm just going to stay outside for a little while okay?" I asked my wife, she looked over at me and nodded her head.

I walked to the side of the house and pulled out a lighter and a cigarette. I lit the cigarette, and took a long drag of it 'God..What am I doing?' i flicked the cigarette onto the ground, and crushed it.

I walked in the house straight to my room and found my wife an shadow cuddled up on the bed asleep. It really broke my heart to see that.

I got on to the bed and joined them on the bed. 'This is going to be the saddest week of my life' I thought to myself before I feel into deep sleep.

Should I Continue? Is it Good? Bad? Stupid?
