The story of Magnum
Story Tellers in Marisa DeWolf’s Middle School Classroom Have you ever felt like life has no meaning, and everything you love is just slipping away? Like loving something is useless because no matter what it will not keep it from leaving you? Well I have, and here’s why. Magnum is my dog that died a long time ago. Today I am twelve. But he died when I was 5 or 6 years old and I was a very unhappy kid. I love you! I will never do anything to hurt you! I remember saying that when I was younger. I loved him and I never wanted him to leave me because he was such a good dog. A while later, Magnum saved my sister from a Rattlesnake, the snake was about to bite her and he pushed her out of the way and he saved her, but he got bit on the nose. He was okay but eventually, we took him to the vet and figured out some of the most horrifying news ever… Magnum… had… cancer. I was so sad and so sad and so scared, I did not know what to do. My heart felt like a million time bombs going off inside of my chest. Consequently, I spent a lot of time with him. I loved on him, took care of him and played with him and just hoped that he would pull through and survive. But that did not happen. It came to the day where I got in the truck with my dad and my sister, my sister was crying and I asked her why she was crying and she said, Magnum is dying today. My heart sank and I started to cry as well. After almost a year, we got a new dog named Red. He is also an awesome dog! He is so cute and nice. At this point in time September,19/2016 Red is 5 years old. A long time ago Red used to be able to jump into the back of my dad’s truck WITHOUT him opening the bed of the truck (which is taller than me by the way), but now that we live in the city he has gained a lot of weight and he weighs 90 pounds. Now he is an awesome, smart, fat, hilarious dog! I love Red and so does my family and everyone else that has met him. I learned that, no matter what, cherish your loved ones and don’t take them for granted because I made that mistake with Magnum, and I will never forgive myself for that. I hope if anyone reading this has anyone they love, I hope they treat them with much love and so much appreciation because life only lasts for so long.
