Not an easy spot to be in.


But you are handling it with honesty and courage.
One thing I realized is how much the other dog and cat picked up on it all. The dog we had to euthanize was the protector and best buddy of the dog that survived. He had his occassional moments of fun with the cat, but mostly ignored it. He was everybody's friend, so the cat would come up to him when she was in a good mood and he would tolerate her kisses. When he was gone, the other dog (and cat!) stood in front of his body to protect him from the vet so she couldn't take him out of our backyard. There was no wondering where he went or if he was coming back. They understand more than I realized, they just can't communicate like we do. I just felt bad that the little guy's last few hours were full of pain and fear. That haunts me a bit still.
