The last one changed my life a few years ago when we had to put my brother’s great dane/bull mastiff down. My brother couldn’t bear to stay with him when he was put down, but I did. If you have to put down any animal, stay with them, no matter how hard, or how painful it is. You are their best friend and they deserve to go peacefully in the arms of the person they love the most.

@weddingbound:  The gift of mercy is the best gift you can give to any animal.

We had to put my Golden Retriever to sleep in December and I still get so choked up about it. WORST day of my LIFE. I know we did the right thing, and his whole family was there to send him off, but it is the toughest thing I’ve ever had to do, and it is hard not to feel guilty about it, even if it was the most humane thing we could have done.

And now I’m bawling…

The last bit is true. A guy I went to high school with worked at a vet’s office, and he said something that has stuck with me for years. He says that when it’s time to let go, stay with them. They look for you when you’re gone…

Oh, it was awful, and still makes me tear up now, but I made the promise to both of my boys that if it ever came down to that, I would be right there with them…
