FOWC With Fandango—Cage

FOWC With Fandango—Cage by Five Dot Oh


I’m not sure why, but this seemed like a weird coincidence for today’s word. My elderly dog who will be turning 15 Years old in a few days has gotten to the point where I have to see about having him put to rest.

I should have done it yesterday. However, my heart was afraid I was wrong in what my brain was telling me. My heart didn’t want my brain making any rash decisions. Funny(not funny) how now my brain has made my heart break worse.

Turned out that it was to be a very long Thursday evening and all night and probably Friday.. Now after having very little sleep I am just hoping that he doesn’t have to suffer until Monday. I know there is emergency vet care. I was hoping he would be able to be at home in familiar surroundings….sigh. We will do what we have to for him.

Anyway, he has a crate, the same one for all his 15 years. He would rest in this crate and go into willingly when told if we were going to leave the house. When we wanted him to go in It so we could secure him we would tell him to go into his house and he would. Otherwise it was left open and he would just go in and out as he chose.

So, when I saw the word cage for today’s challenge it made me think of his crate. His home in his home I suppose you could say

As it turns out today(and who knows how many more) is truly going to be the worst of memory filled challenges.

I was going to put a photo of him on this post, but I have been going though many photos w/o finding one. Turns out I have little patience for any more looking, so I will try to find one at another time and do an update.

I ❤️ love to hear your thoughts so Please feel free leave a comment, opinion, or feedback.



  1. I’m so sorry about what you’re going through with your dog. Ours is going to be 15 in December, but she, too, is not doing well and we are grappling with what to do — put her down (our brain) or keep her alive for as long as we can (our heart), even though she’s not doing well. She also has a crate, where these days she spends most of her time. It’s a heartbreaking decision, either way.

    • Sorry accidentally deleted. Our comments and had to get them back…ugh

      Definitely. It’s even worse when the last thing you can do for them is let them go at home and because of circumstances, current events or whatever stupid reason you cannot even get someone to come to your house so they can drift off in the comfort of their own home.

      Good luck and best wishes to you and yours.
