Yes, I'd be doing the same.
And that is so very wrong to go against the deceased wishes. Honestly, if my parents couldn't take my girls for whatever reason, they are to be pts. Circumstances may be different for future dogs, but I'm appalled at the very idea of someone fighting to 'save' my dogs. I will make the decisions for my pets based on what I think is the best for them.
