day 11892: sharing tears

How does one not share the pain of a family in the vet's office waiting to end the suffering of a dear, dear friend? Despite our recent endless loop of vet appointments, today was the first time I encountered a grieving family. Witnessing someone else's pain is a truly heartwrenching experience. I've been tearing up all day.

I'm afraid that when it comes my turn to make the decision, I won't be able to do it. This might be the one thing that would kill me.

Awww...I hope the family is ok. It's never easy to let go of a pet.

I hope tootsie is also doing ok...
a while back, yoyo was sick, something about her spine resting on nerves limiting her movement. She was on antibiotics etc etc. she is fine now, but if it happens again, we may need to make the same decision.... it was really sad even just thinking about it.
