  •  After many wise and loving dogs leaving this (3+ / 0-)

    Earth in my arms, I will offer only this: best to decide to send them off too early than a day too late.

    It's never easy. But frankly, if I could choose how I would leave this life, I would want to leave held safely in the arms of the ones I love and trusted the most, in my living room, with a tummy full of all my favorite foods (yes, especially brownies), as I painlessly drifted away.

    That's exactly how my geriatric dogs leave us -- including the brownies.

    If your vet does not do house calls, and you want an at-home euthanasia, your vet (or local humane society) may know of a vet who does them.

    You and your pup will remain in my thoughts.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
