Tall Meme and Smol Meme Say Goodbye
The next morning, Tall meme woke up and cried a little, he kept saying that "this was the day."
Angel Bean accompanied him to the vet today, Smol meme in his arms.
They led Smol meme into the room with the metal table and took the stuff wrapping his leg off. The nozzle was exposed. One of The Man Vets came in and told Tall meme and Angel Bean that they had five minutes.
"Smol meme, I love you. I love you boy. I love you. Every day that I've spent with you I've loved. You really are a man's best friend. I've loved you for all seven years. For all of the years from 2010. I still love you. I remember the night I hit you. I'm sorry. I'll always be sorry for that. I love you. I love you so much." Tall meme said, sniffling. Angel Bean stroked his fur, and Tall meme cried into his chest as his friend held him close, telling him that Smol meme was going to a better place, but he didn't want to leave Tall meme!
The vet came in. He took out Smol meme's nozzle and stuck him with a needle.
The very last needle.
Smol meme's legs began to feel weak, so he laid down and rested his head on the cold metal.
Like Angel Bean's mirror.
Tall meme stroked his fur and Angel Bean started to cry a little.
Smol meme felt very tired. He wanted to stay awake and comfort his owner, but he felt the pull of sleep. It was irresistible. The pain in his side ebbed away, and he sniffed Tall meme's scent as he placed his hand on the table next to his nose.
Smol meme couldn't see.
He shut his eyes and licked Tall meme's hand one last time before he fell asleep.
Tall Meme and Smol Meme Go To The Pet Store
Tall meme sat up in bed, stretching. His Shiba Inu, Smol meme, stirred and yawned, stretching and sitting at the foot of the bed where he had been sleeping.
"We're going for a walk with Angel Bean today, Smol meme," Tall meme decided as he stood up and stretched his legs. His dog followed him to the kitchen, where he poured dog food into a bowl and gave it to Smol meme. Tall meme poured himself a bowl of cereal and went to sit at the table with Angel Bean. Smol meme followed him in after he had eaten his food.
Tall meme finished his cereal and went to his room to get ready, coming out later wearing a black shirt, darkly washed jeans, and black and grey mismatched socks. He put shoes on and got Smol meme's collar, slipping it over his canine's head.
"Let's go, Smol meme!"
They walked out the door and down the stairs, Tall meme had planned to go to the park to walk his dog.
They arrived at the park, just as a slight breeze began to blow, parting the clouds and letting the sun shine through. The light lit up Tall meme's hair, his curly brown locks becoming a lighter color in the sunlight. Smol meme's fur looked as golden as a lion's fur, and children who were at the park gazed at the dog, longing to pet his head. Smol meme's tail wagged as he walked, showing that he was very content strolling with his owner.
Tall meme took Smol meme to a pet store to buy him treats. The dog was being trained to sit and stay and lay down, so they needed more.
The pet store was somewhat crowded inside, people with dogs on leashes standing in line to pay or washing their animals in the wash tubs in the back. Smol meme borked at many of the dogs, but Tall meme patted his head.
"It's okay, Smol meme!"
But Smol meme was not okay. He was excited to meet the dogs, and he ran forward, jerking the leash out of Tall meme's hand. Tall meme gave a startled yelp, watching his dog bolt off into an aisle. He started to chase after Smol meme, but Tall meme was clumsy, so he tripped over a cat. Tall meme fell, face first, and he lay there for a moment pondering his misfortune and lack in sports abilities. He got up and ran clumsily after his dog, chasing him through the aisles of the store. Tall meme found Smol meme in the treat aisle, and Tall meme ruffled his canine's hair. This was typical in a pet store. But this was every day for Smol meme. Every day was the best day ever, now.
Smol meme and Tall meme had been on this routine for years. Seven in total. Walk, store, home, sleep. Smol meme liked spending time with his owner and Angel Bean, and he had looked forward to every single day.
He would wait for Tall meme and Angel Bean here in this endless world of light and joy.
He would wait.
They would come some day, and take him for a walk.
