Of Dogs and Nightmares

Have you ever had a dream where you get into a fight with somebody close to you and you wake up crying? Or worse, someone you love dies?? 

I've had more than my share of nightmares this 2013 - family members dying, getting into crazy fights with my parents and being cheated on by my boyfriend. Most recently, last December 19 (which was my birthday!!), I dreamt that one of my dogs died. Mikko, my favorite, was really sad one morning, so I tried playing with him but he didn't care. I remember holding him in my arms when he told me he was dying! His exact words were: "konti nalang, konti nalang mamamatay na ako." And the worst part is, other members of my family didn't care. My mom and my aunt were even laughing at me because I was crying!

Here are the most recent photos I took of Mikko, a week before I had that awful nightmare.

I was crying my eyes out when I woke up. And would you believe that that was actually my second nightmare that day? Of all the days, birthday ko pa. :(
Not sure why I decided to share this. Sorry for spreading so much negativity and sadness this close to Christmas. I promise to post more positive stuff after the holidays, pagbigyan niyo nalang ako today. I'm really gonna miss our dogs when they're gone. They (Mikko and Mikki) are already seven years old, so I'm just praying they don't leave us too soon. 
To dog owners everywhere, love your dogs, don't take them for granted. Remember, "he might be only part of your life, but for him, you are his everything, the only person in his whole life."
