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

Your dog was lucky to have you. As are the pups to come.

An old man has loved many good dogs.

Sounds like you had a wonderful vet, who understood the broken hearts that are left behind when a beloved pet dies...also very nice of your vet to make donations to help other dogs....

Luckily for me, my last three dogs all died at home, I did not have to take them in to be put down....but wherever the dog departs from, its always so wonderful to have the family hold the dog while it dies, and lets the dog know how much they are loved...oh, my, the tears a flowing....
