Personal Narrative Essay: A Memorable Day Of A Dog

Improved Essays
One memorable moment is when I got a dog. I had been wanting a dog for years but I was always told no until finally, my dad’s friend’s dog had puppies. At first my parents weren’t too sure but agreed to getting one after I promised to take care of the dog. Plus, the dog was free so they really thought about it. We visited the dog every week until he turned 7 weeks and then we were able to take him home. The dog had two puppies so we were able to choose which one we wanted.

He had just turned 7 weeks that same exact day. We were sort of scared because we weren’t sure exactly how he would react. On the car ride, he was fine. He just slept the whole time until we got home. When we got home, he was confused. He was sniffing everywhere and seemed to be a little scared. After a few minutes, he sort of calmed down and was ok. That night we thought he would cry but he actually just slept the whole time.

He had been shaking and I didn’t know what was wrong. My mom kept on saying that it was nothing but I know something was wrong. The very next day we took him to the vet and found out that he had punctured his eyeball and that he would need eye drops to help it heal. We tried that for two weeks and there was still no results.

All of a sudden I see my dad grow a second head but this head was a puppy head. The dog was in his shirt to stay warm i’m guessing, but it was really weird. We went to the store and he left me alone with this month old puppy that I didn't even know so I started petting her and she was really nice and gave a bunch of kisses.

    The doctors said the dialysis would be in violation of his DNR papers so they were not at liberty to do it. They also said his body was much too weak to withstand all the pressure on his body. Aunt Hattie requested they not give her their professional opinion about how much longer he had as we knew who the real judge of that would be. A week after that, on April 26, 2015 we made our way down to North Carolina to say goodbye I guess. When I saw him he was clearly asleep, breathing and everything, but would not wake up at all.…
