Matagal na akong di umiiyak. Ewan ko ba sa dami siguro ng dinaan ko sa buhay kasama ang mga sangkap ng pamilya, pakikipag kaibigan at pakikipagrelasyon sa iba't ibang tao. Totoo nga siguro ang sabi nila - BATO AT MANHID NA AKO SA GULO AT IKOT NG MUNDO.
Isang araw nakatihan kong regaluhan ang sarili ko ng mga tuta. OO, tuta, di ko alam siguro lumaki ako sa pamilya na mahilig sa aso at ilang aso na rin nga ba ang inalagaan ko. So, two months before my birthday, I raised afund to buy me some puppies - A Spaniel, Chow chow and a shih tzu. Breeders would know di biro ang halaga ng mga asong ito. Dont get me wrong di ako yung tipo ng maluhong tao, pero pag me project talaga na gustong pag ipunan I can make sacrifices. So, I did raised the needed fund. I got a male Black Spaniel First, followed by a chow chow after a month and A shih twu after a week. That is how determined I was to get the puppies I have always dreamed ever since I was a child ata. Wala lang I really like furry pups.
I did all the necesarry basic things have them regularly check by vet, buy them the most expensive utilities and foods I could find, gave them their daily dose of vitamins etc etc etc.
Then Bang! One morning, AKI the chow chow was feeling a little bit down, bigla siyang naging matamlay, so as any could father would do, I had him check up sa doctor niya, but despite rigorous medication and all... AKI died, and she died on my arms. Hearing her cry really breaks my heart. I was really hysterical when she died, well can I say, I have treated them like my own children, at para talag akong namatayan ng anak that time.
But it is not the end of it, sumunod sa kanya si HARU (shih tzu), same case and like AKI she did not survive either despite her hospital confinement sa isa sa mga high tech vet clinic dito sa manila. Same tears flooded my tears, my two daughters died on me, five days before my actual birthday.
Fate has really somethintg to teach, I guess, because right after HARU, sumonod na ng pananamlay si SAATCHI (Spaniel). Amongst the three, SAATCHI is special. Siya yung pinakamalambing sa tatlo, he even sleeps with me sa bed.
Like my two daughters, SAATCHI suffer the same fate, their doctors call PARVO the culprit. That despite blood transfusion, SAATCHI did not survive it either. He was confined the day of birthday and died the following day.
It breaks me so hard that I would want to knock everybody down. But hey, It did taught me one thing, di ako manhid tulad ng mga madalas iparatang sa akin. Di ako manhid. Bato nga ako, batong buhay.
