Another great link...have saved it for later reading...reading through all of this I am remembering all my dogs, who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge...I hope they are all waiting for me...I have had so many dogs in my many years, and not a bum in the batch...Life without dogs, would be to my mind, such an empty life...

Unfortunately now, I have no dog...I was just about to get another dog, when I wound up with my sons cat, Dizzy, who does not get along with dogs...

But strangely, Dizzy, who is a great big Himalayan kitty, acts more like a dog than a cat...he rolls over for a belly rub all the time, he follows us whereever we go, he greets us at the door, he loves to be held and cuddled...sure wish he would get along with dogs better, so I could get myself another basset hound...

Thank you all for your very kind thoughts and words!

The vet we took her to,(Banfield Hospital)has a very family friendly euthanization policy. They you to be there for as much as you want. We all sat on the floor and I held her in my lap. We prayed for heaven to accept her while the Doc administered the injection and the Doc actually sat next to me and cried a bit too.

As we were leaving they gave us a sympathy card signed by the doc and nurse with a footprint and a small shock of fur.
In the card, it stated that the hospital makes a memorial donation to PetsMart's animal rescue organization in your dog's name.

Before we left for the vet, I trimmed off a some fur and brushed her good beforehand. I now have a small pile of fur and we plan to release bits of it at our/her favorite campgrounds and hiking spots this summer.

Ok, I guess it makes it better by talking about it too.

Thanks for listening.
Dave
