Woman Is Holding The Dying Dog In Her Arms During All Night To Make Her Dog Feel Loved

“I cried myself to sleep…”
Death is inevitable, and everyone has to face it one day or the other. This truth is the saddest for the founder of Speranza Animal Rescue, Janine Guido, who works every day to save lives of dogs and other animals. Unfortunately, she had to face it recently, when she met Watson.

A college student had found Watson, the starving Pit Bull alone in a park all alone in Philadelphia. She took the poor pup with sores all over his body, to an emergency vet who revealed later that the dog had a large tumour on his back leg and nothing much could be done about it. He had very less time in this world.
A local shelter agreed to keep Watson and make him as comfortable as possible.

“I had a gut feeling that things weren’t going to be good the next day,” Guido said. “I didn’t want to leave him alone. Not when he needed me the most.”

Guido insisted on staying with Watson and gathered blankets and dog beds. Then, she lied down beside him, holding him close to her as he dozed off in her arms.

“He slept like a rock all night, cuddled up to me so tight,” Guido said. “I cried myself to sleep, and woke up in tears as well.”

The following morning, Warson did nothing except pacing in circles and refusing to eat or drink. Guido realized his time has come. So, she continued giving her as much love as possible and making sure he felt every bit of it.

As expected, Watson didn’t lie for long after that, feeling loved, maybe for the first time.

“I’m just so thankful I was able to hold him tight for his last night,” Guido said. “I was telling him how much he was loved — and that his life mattered. My heart is breaking, but I would not change a thing.”
