On Wednesday (June 15th), Jesse James of the West Coast Choppers shared a video of probably one of the hardest things that a pet parent can do — bid farewell to a loyal companion.
Bubba, Jesse’s black Pit Bull who was born in 2004, was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and it was found out not long ago that he also has polyps in his rectum. From another Facebook post, Jesse shared that “[Bubba’s] suffering but [he is] still that warrior shop dog from Long Beach.”
In the video, you can see Jesse wiping away the tears and giving as much love as he can in his final moments with Bubba. Bubba softly responds by reaching up to kiss Jesse.
You can watch the heartbreaking Facebook video of Jesse spending his last moments with Bubba below.
Compassion for your dog is such a sharp razors edge. When they get old and start to break down and suffer, It is so hard to make that decision to end that suffering. We find ourselves hanging on to any tiny sign of them being being ok, or better. We know it's denial, but it's so hard to call it what it is. It comes down to pure selfishness in the end, You not wanting to let them go. Seeing them in oblivious pain is just as hard as seeing their tail still wagging and light still in their eyes. Holding them in your arms and feeling their struggle and pain come to an end. That is the real lesson in showing compassion for your best friend.#jessejames
