It was a tough morning, our dog of 17 years ( lived with my parents) had to be put down today as he had a stroke last night and lots the ablity to walk or eat. I got a call this mornign while at the dentist that the poor little boy had to be put down, everyones was hysterical I again was givien the job of having it done and to tell you the truth is almost kills me to have to do this to the animals of our family. over the years we have had many, cats dogs, and a big old rat. They grow in my home, loved and cared for, so when that day comes the job falls on me to make sure there last moments are in my arms, and held in there blankies and comforted. I come away with such a deep saddness and broken heart. I know that the comfort they gave us in life, and the love they give us does nto last forever, the pain is deep and so painful. my mo and dad are in such great sadness, and dad can hardly speak still. that dog was by his side night and day, he even fed him by hand.
So long Peppy, you were sweet, feisty, fun, and loved!!!
