Man do I love my dog, or should I say, I loved my dog. My dog was killed in a hit-and-run accident recently, and it devastated me to the point where I couldn't function properly. The dog was given to me about five years ago, and this was when I was already going through a loss in my family. When I saw my dog's face for the first doctors form, it made all the difference in the world to me, and now I'm sad that she's gone. The first day after I buried my dog was hard enough, and I did not get to work on time.

I started going late to work for the first week, and then I got hit with a write up note, and I was told that I may lose my job if I didn't straighten out. I couldn't believe that the death of my dog was affecting me so much, but I knew that I needed more time to grieve. So, it made me sit around my bench and think for a way to excuse myself but not telling the real reason, because they will not accept it for sure, and I just remember what my friend told me about medical excuse note that I can buy online. I was not in school anymore, this was work, and I was not able to just give any excuse, in order to get out of work. People who give doctors note excuses, have no job to come back to.

I decided that I would try to get time off. I was just going to go and ask for the time off, but after my boss yelled at the person who was in the office before me, and told them that they couldn't get any time off, I change my mind. I knew that I had to come up with a different plan, in order to get the time off that I truly needed to recover. I had some forms that I needed to fill out, and I had to go online to do it, so while I was online, I decided to find a doctors slip and do a search.
