I had to have my little dog put to sleep last week. I miss him so much. He was my company.
After we were married, my husband didn’t have a tractor, so he bought several mules to plow to make a crop. I remember, one cold day I put on my coat and head scarf, on my way to round up the cows to bring home to milk. To my surprise and their surprise I walked up on them. The mules scared me and I scared them. They snorted several times and I clapped my hands. When they turned to run, one fell to the ground and couldn’t get up. I said to myself, “What have I done, scared that mule so bad that she might have had a heart attack?”
I got home and told my husband. He went to the pasture to see about her, but she didn’t get up for him. A neighbor looked at her but didn’t know what was wrong, so my husband went and got some medicine. He gave it to her, but she died. After that it was told that I had scared that mule to death. She was sick and would have died anyway.
