Other decisions don't come as easily.
Is it time to take away Mom or Dad's car keys? Should we place Grandma in a nursing home? Is the marriage over? Is it time to send Buffy to the Rainbow Bridge?
In my life I have had to make life and death decisions far too often when it comes to animals. It's never, nor should it be, an easy call.
One of those times occurred when I had to put my much beloved Arabian stallion, Azaad, down. He fought bravely against laminitis for years. Even 15 years later, I miss him so much.
As often happens, it comes down to a quality of life issue as well as a financial one. The monetary end of things make the decision all the harder.
A dear friend is facing that choice now. I wish I could ease his pain but the best I can do is offer a shoulder.
So sorry, sweetie!
