We had to put our oldest dog down yesterday.

I'm still numb over it. I miss her. Her happy face. Her thump-thump-thump tail against the door (or anything really).

Baby was 13. Had tumors and probably cancer and we had done so much and there was nothing left to do. I've never had to make that decision before. It was heartbreaking.

It still is.

Life isn't fair.

I've faced it twice so far on my own, with my own animals, and it's different than in wildlife rehab, and it's different when you have to be the one with the final word. It's the worst responsibility. What I hated most was other people either reassuring me that (or questioning whether) I'd done the "right" thing. When that decision has to be made, there is no "right" choice.
