He was put down at 11:30 and brought home and buried in the rain under the frangapani tree (frangapani being the flower we put in my mums grave on her coffin in 2004 and she gave hendrix to me so it seemed fitting)
He was bagged at the vet, a plastic bag inside a cotton bag and they are both biodegradable. i also slipped his little bed under the plastic bag inside the cotton one.
He went rather quickly and is as Doggyhog said no longer in pain.
Typically its been raining all day stopping slightly when we buried him
