I had raised him from a 4wk old pup, & losing him truly broke my heart, but also I knew I was acting in his best interest, as I was with Poisson, when I had to euthanize him. I firmly believe this philosophy: When u love an animal as part of the family, it's best to let go when it's obvious that they're not getting better (whatever the health issues they may be facing), and keeping them alive brings them senseless suffering. It's only right, if they're declining rapidly.
