Ask @TheDirtQueen:

So I heard my friend whose mum is dying from cancer isn’t interested in making up with me. So I sent his mum a short sort of heartfelt farewell text like other friends have done, do you think that’ll bother my former friend. I knew her & wouldve had a guilty conscience if I didn’t before she dies

He'll probably be annoyed by it but you did that right thing by trying to reach out to him first.

Extending his life for your sake would have been selfish. You may have done the right thing. With dogs it's the quality of life and comfort you give them rather than length

That's what my vet told me and that putting him down was the right thing to do. Thinking about the next dog helps. My mom went to animal shelter just to look at the dogs and then she tried to steal the neighbors cat. The grieving process is different for her.

I know losing a dog is hard. People say getting another puppy helps.

My apartment complex is going charge us another $300 pet fee for another dog plus I don't agree with what my mom wants. She wants a small adult dog. I want a large breed puppy like a German Shephard puppy. I will definitely get another dog, but it probably won't happen until I can afford my own place and get the dog that I want.

We recently lost the family dog in January so I feel your pain. During the grieving process you may feel a stage of guilt wondering if you could have done anything different. It's normal and try not to let it mess you up too much.

I wish I had done more. Towards the end, he refused to take his medicine. I even tried to open his mouth and force it but kept his jaw closed shut. He was stubborn as hell. If I could have forced it down him, the medicine might have extended his life.

Long story short I fell out with a mate last summer bc he’d always accuse me of trying to get with ex gf. One night he called me when drunk & insulted my dead mum so I went to his house & punched him, not spoken since. Today I found out his mum is dying of cancer & has days left. Should I reach out

R$$
I would try to reach out. You don't have to forgive him because what he said was disgusting, but he's about to experience the same devastating loss that you did. You don't ever have to be his friend again but I would reach out and give my condolences. I hope your old mate is man enough to apologize to you afterwards.
