My heart goes out to you and your mom during this rough time.
My family finally made the decision to let our very first dog go this summer, after a quick and aggressive bone cancer diagnosis. We could not afford the chemo, but beyond that he would have been so unhappy, being dragged back and forth to the vet's office every month. Sometimes, even forgetting finances for a minute, it's just too hard on the elderly pets to justify trying to continue their lives.
You made the right choice for Pickles, however sad it may be at the moment. I'm sure she is thrilled to have her youth and eyesight back and she'll always be watching over you. She and my Jack can frolic together.
for you. Think of the fondest memories and the best lessons. Our little pets can teach us so much and I'm so grateful we have had the chance to experience that.
