Hey everyone! I'm in need of some extra cash for christmas gifts, so I decided to open for hoodie commissions!

I offer custom hoodies for $50. Shipping is $10. The base hoodie must be provided by the customer to ensure a good fit. You get up to 5 additions to the hoodie (ears, tails, spots, horns, wings, etc.) any additional addon costs $5 each. Here are some examples:

im so tired of this

I've been depressed on and off for the last several weeks. My childhood companion, and best pet ever, might pass away before christmas. Murphy is a mix between australiant shepherd and english springer spaniel. She is my first dog, and my best friend. She's now 14 and her health is rapidly declining. Im tearing up as i write this so if there is typoes please forgive me, its hard to see the keyboard.

I got her when i was 6, and i remember it like it was yesterday. She has always been there for me, in my best times, and my worst. She would sit and listen to what i had to say, or watch what i would do, no matter what. She protected me from danger, and accompanied me during my outdoor/backyard adventures. I love her so much it hurts to think she could vanish from my world before this year ends. I've only felt this much pain in my heart when my grandmother passed almost 2 years ago in november.

It seems like just a few months ago Murphy was running around the backyard, chasing me playfully. Right now we (meaning me, my parents and the vet) believe she has the canine version of dimensia, what my grandmother died from, as well as cushinson's disease which makes her pant alot and heavily. Her bones are weakening, and everyday its getting harder for her to walk or even to stand.

When we put her downstairs for the night (she cant control her muscles anymore so if she has "to go" she will right there), she is fine, but if we leave the house to run errans, even if its for a short while, she will have panic/anxiety attacks and destroy anything within her reach. She has destroyed the makeshift door my dad made 3 times to the point he had to sacrifice using metal screen and made it solid plywood with a sliding lock instead of the doorhandle. The other day she pulled a tooth out because she was trying to bite the door so hard.

I try so hard not to think of her passing but each day it seems to come closer and closer. I know for a fact she wont be around for my 19th birthday in march, and its even looking more likely she wont even be around for christmas or thanksgiving. Murphy is already on 3 different pain medications for her arthritis and one for her anxiety (Zanex). She is also starting to loose weight for no apparent reason. According to vet records she lost 6 pounds in 2 months, and we are to take her in every week to weigh her. If she continues to loose weight, we may have to put her to sleep.

My heart aches when i think of her being put to sleep, as my boyfriend had to go through the same thing last november with his dog. Everyday i give her a big hug and tell her i love her. But I know she doesnt understand much anymore, she even is showing signs of going deaf and not reconginizing us. This painful downward spiral brings flashbacks of my grandmother's end, which makes me feel worse.

I work on commissions or personal projects to keep my mind at bay, but its getting harder to do so. I just needed to let this out, ive been crying myself to sleep or having breakdowns everyday now. I just can't begin to think that one day I will wake up and she wont be there....

Thanks for reading this, and thanks to those who have supported me in these hard times.

I love you Murphy, always and forever my friend <3
