I'm so sorry, Donna. These decisions are never easy. We had to put our 18 year old Dalmation down on Memorial Day after really looking at her quality of life instead of thinking about how much we would miss her. My vet kept telling me 'you will know when the time is right', and we did. I am sure you will know too. My heart goes out to you and it was wonderful that you gave him a few years of a loving life.

What a sweet lady you are! I'm so glad he has been in a loving home these past few yrs, I don't understand the way some ppl treat their pets.
I've had to put down several dogs thru the yrs, never had cats. One dog we had to put down had liver cancer, he got sick on Thurs, dx on Sat and we had to put him down on Sun. He just went down hill so quickly, we were not prepared - altho I don't know how much time you can really get to 'accept' the loss of a beloved pet.
I know this hard for you and your family, it is never easy. My thoughts and prayers are w/ you all.
God bless. Alice.

So sorry, Donna. Sometimes it's so hard to put our emotions aside and do what is humane for our pet and it sounds like you did the right thing. It hurts, just the same.
