Thanks Katy! As difficult as our situation is right now it has given me so much food for thought. Over the past 25 years I have had to help 3 of our friends to the other side at the ages 14, 16 and 17 years. The one thing that remains with me all the time is “did I do the right thing”. Was it for my convenience or was it really because they were “no longer getting quality of life”…

I have just finished reading a great book (and its sequel actually) which talks about why dogs play such an important part of our lives and what they are here to teach us…the book is a story about dogs and angels…and not what you would expect by the title. It has really made me sit up and think seriously about the lives we share with these beautiful creatures. If anyone is interested I’ll post the details.

Tia is having a good day today.
