Never gets easier.
Odd how deeply they can get into us.
They must have a special private place in our hearts, where even humans aren't aloud.

My sincere condolences F-10.

Sorry for the loss of a member of your family.

Animals give us unconditional love and our responsibility in return for that love is to always do what is right for the animal.

The last loving thing you can do (and the hardest) is to take their pain away forever.

Regards,

Andy

PS I've had my fair share of having to "doing the right thing" too.

Sorry to hear WT... hope in time you might find another new friend to give a great home to.

Sorry to hear that WT, he looks a great character.
One of the most heart-wrenching decisions in life, the 'right time' to let them go.

We have five small boxes of ashes now, (we are not bad owners, just adopted dogs with issues!) and it never gets any easier, but the rewards of companionship outweigh the anguish of loss.

Latest acquisition is a 13y/o Beddy/whippet Lurcher we were fostering, but have decided to keep. Not likely to expire due to over-exertion as one can witness here:

The three-legged job we were fostering for amputation care on full recovery has gone to a lovely family with enclosed field to run in. It was decided that no action would be taken against previous neglectful owners beyond a stern letter from the charity's solicitor.
They responded with a cheque donation that seems to have got 'lost in the post'.

I hate to see we've lost more of our dogs. We do the best we can and do them the biggest favor in the end. I firmly believe dogs and cats accept when it's time and don't want to linger on unhappy. It isn't the animal way. Or maybe they're just smart and that's their own last favor to us? They trust us to take care of that.
We do the best we can while we have them and they probably live happier lives than most of us.
