It will come for all of us sooner or later. Our fur babies will approach us, appearing tired and run down, not at all like they were a mere few years before, and you will start to count the years down on your fingers. Really? Fifi is thirteen years old? You have noticed her slowing down, not as eager to go on her walk as she once did, but could your precious pooch really be fading?
Just the thought of it brings tears to our eyes but, after all, every living thing on this earth is mortal. In other words, we all have an expiration date, as much as we hate to admit it.
So, how do you know when your best friend is edging that fine line between a quality life and a painful end?
We desperately want to believe, with the new advances in medicine, that our doggy can be saved, given another chance, but we have to really think about what we are asking.
Is it possible we are being selfish and our pooch needs the comfort of a final sleep? Go over to the next page to know when it is time to say goodbye to a fur baby!
