I'm sorry, I am in two places with euthanasia in this case. It is killing her because it is taking her life, and if I feel that I am doing that for selfish reasons, like, she is not getting any better, so let's let her go now, it will be easier to manage, etc. But I also believe that euthanasia is the last gift we can give our beloved companion. And it can be selfish to prolong a critter's life, allowing them to suffer, because we cannot bring ourselves to take that step.

I dunno where we are right now. Today I wish I would have put her down yesterday. But then she tore into her food like I didn't feed her for three days. She is socially interested in what the other dogs are doing. She is happy to see me. She is still managing to walk, and even trot a little.

This is the price of sharing our life with such a spectacular creature.

The ups and downs are gut wrenching. It is the last gift we can do for our beloved pets but it is the MOST difficult.
