    Hard decision made tonight.

    Hey guys.

    Those of you that know me a bit may realize I have 4 dogs. (Yup, gotta be a little nuts to do that).

    Well, my oldest dog, Koa has been a real trooper over her 15 year life. She has been the "momma" dog to all the others over the years, and was always the one to "teach" the others the way to act.

    Anyway, over the past two weeks, she has lost a bit of appetite, had a few accidents inside, and just today kind of lost her back leg strength.

    This dog has been through cruciate surgery when younger (because she would try to run up a tree in our back yard), and has survived having an adrenal gland tumor disorder for a year and a half now (with medication).

    But that aside, My wife & I have made that awful decision. This will be her last night with us.
    My wife has been employed at our local veterinary hospital for the last 18 years, so this whole process will be that much easier in that respect.

    Sorry to ramble, but I know the decision is the right one.

    Worst part right now is dealing with the wife. Although she deals with euthanasia on a daily basis at the vet, this being our own is a completely different deal.

    Thanks for listening to me ramble................

    My heart goes out to you Paul. My Pit passed away 3 years this past April 11th and it has definitely left a void in me.

    I am so sorry for you and your family. That is one of the hardest decisions a person will ever make, but it becomes a little easier knowing that it is the best decision for the animal. Fifteen years is a long time to have with an animal and I'm sure you have many fond memories from those years you had together. Those memories will be with you forever.

    Paul,

    I am so sorry for you and your wife. By the third sentence tears are coming from my eyes still. Try to think positive, you gave Koa a great home, love, and the best health care money could buy. That is very commendable, and you folks have my upmost respect for that. It's a hard decision I know, but you are putting her first, her quality of life. Prayers to you and your Mrs, prayers Koa has a peaceful transition. And ramble on Brother, you got friends here!
