I Had to Put My Dog to Sleep
today was one of the worst days I have ever had. I had made a decision to end the life of my greatest friend and companion. My gorgeous doberman/shepardx, I had her for 13 years and she was the most gentle and loving dog,I didn't think I was going to cope with having to go with her but I drew the strength from somewhere, the vet was very compassionate, he told me everything that was going to happen and what to expect. She was very calm and she just trusted whatever the vet did. I on the other hand was a blubbering mess.....he allowed me some time with her before he took her away and I just howled and second guessed myself, thinking maybe she would of been ok for a few more months, but she wouldn't of been, her legs were giving way, she had over the past few days developed an awful cough and couldn't move without coughing, she had tumors all over her body and she barely walked anymore.I know in my heart it was the right thing to do but it has only been been two since I left her and all my feelings and emotions are still raw.
