We had my first dog for 16 years, almost as long as I've been alive. A long time, I know; he was really healthy for a long time, and could outrun most of the younger dogs until the end.
He had been acting strange for a while. He'd walk slow, and kind of hang his head in a sulk. But any time I'd go to pet him, his ears would perk up and his brow would lift, as if he were smiling at me.
It was a Sunday night, almost exactly three years ago. I didn't have school the next day, because it was Martin Luther King Jr. Day. So I stayed up late watching TV, even though I thought I should spend some time with Bernie because he was just lying around all day, not even getting up to greet me. This was unlike him, and I could tell he was getting close to the end. But I figured that I'd have the whole next day.
Well, I came down in the morning, and he didn't walk up to me like he usually did, tail wagging and jumping. He was just laying still, right where he was when I went up to bed, and before I could go over to try and wake him up, I lost the game.

Wow, thats sad. D: Thats what happened to my cousins dog and they found out that it was the dog's bone, it was like piercing thru the spine. Kinda difficult to explain. Anyways, did Bernie limped when he walked?
