something different for me....my friend had 3 dogs which she positively adores..they truly are her children. Well, a few months ago she lost her GSD to cancer and Thurs. night her beloved black lab had to be put to sleep. He was 15 and couldn't even stand or walk anymore, he had been in terrible pain. She had the vet come to her house to do it, and had people over for a wake. Anyone ever do that?? I never even knew you could (course, I'm sure not all vets would even consider a house call...this fellow is a gem) Was very new to me. She now just has her Irish setter, and she is so very sad.
(I don't think Dave would EVER let me do that.....he thought it was harder this way. But, I disagree...I think it helped her cause her boy died at home in her arms)
