thank you for the kind words and support. really it means the world to me.
I just want to say that if you ever find yourself in a situation where you have to put your pet to sleep you really must be there for it. I know it’s hard and sad, but think about your beloved pet. Think about them leaving this world, and how much more comforting it would be for them to have you hold their head, saying nice things, petting them. Much nicer than some stranger that they don’t know.
We all went, said bye to Jake and gave him love. He was so incredibly happy to see us, and it was good. Then I remained in the room with him and the Dr. for his goodbye. As hard as it was, (and I’ve had to do it before) I know in my heart that if I hadn’t gone down to be there, if I hadn’t done it I would regret it forever.
I know this is a sad topic- but I hope that you remember it and that if ever you are in this difficult position that you do the same. Putting my own sadness aside to be there for him was the best thing I could have done for him at that point.
