Christmas was approaching in the year 2016.                                                                                
Everyone of us was excited for gift giving.                                                                                               
Then suddenly a heated argument ensued                                                                                                   
I screamed on top of my lungs.        
I was a bit drunk and was down in the dumps                                                                                                
I still miss my canine pet who passed away a long time ago.                                                                                                                                            
My siblings tried to calm me down                                                                                                          
until I felt numb and became unconscious.
I was having a heart attack for the very first time.                                                                                              
It was such a near death experience.                                                                                                                 
I remember crying and I could not move                                                                                                        
but I was very delighted by what I saw.       
My dog was wagging his tail and jumping over me.                                                                                            
I hugged him tight he licked my face.                                                                                                           
We were overjoyed                                                                                                                                          
we missed each other so much.  
I felt it was real - I didn't like the moment to end                                                                                              
but I suddenly woke up                                                                                                                                    
and he was nowhere to be found.                                                                                                                 
That very short encounter with my baby dog                                                                                                 
gives me genuine happiness each time I think about him.
