I teared up, I thought of my dog who died about 2 years ago. My dog (Lucky) had been getting old (about 14 years for a fairly large dog), and was losing his back legs, and already was entirely deaf. He gained lumps, grew tired easily, yet still would play and run. He was an amazing dog, he always was obedient, brave and loyal, having even protected my little sister and dad from a viscous dog.
One day I came home from school and he was gone. My dad told me and my sister that he died. My dad had had to carry Lucky to the vet. He was dead. I couldn't really wrap my head around it at the time, but cried over the following days; and again today.
Joke posts like this are fine for now. However, do not let it get out of hand. If I see anything getting too personal, or if anybody gets legitimately upset from these posts I will start crushing skulls.
I know I said this, but forget it. Completely forget it,
I talked it over with my peers and we've decided that these kind of posts are simply not going to be allowed. They're hurtful and completely uncalled for. And this is a family website. So no more.
If I catch anybody insulting another member in this thread, joke post or not, I will be punishing them.
This thread is the most wonderful thing on ZU. After watching the videos, reading the comics and the stories, you realise how much you should appreciate everything, from pets to parents to lovers, because nothing's there forever...
