A great life has come to an end.
Today we had to have one of our dogs put to sleep. She was 11 years old and had had several medical issues during her life. She was getting old prematurely, she was breaking down and we could see she was struggling.
We could have kept her hobbling along on medications and supplements and what not, but that would have been for our benefit, not hers.
We made the hard decision and had her euthanised by a vet. We had the vet come to our house, where she was with her family and surrounded by love. She slipped away calmly, and we all held her as she took her last breath.
A great life has ended, and now her spirit is free to run over the rainbow. The thunderstorms will trouble you no more.
Good night Blaze, til we meet again.
