    Default Putting my girl to sleep.

    We'll the inevitable time has come. After 13 + years of companionship we have decided to put her to sleep tomorrow. Her cancer has metastasized and spread to her lungs. It's not an easy choice but it has to be done before she becomes more miserable.

    So very sorry for you and your girl. You are doing the right thing but it sure isn't easy....try to focus on all the good times that you have had together for the last 13 years.

    I'm sorry it has come to this. It is a tough deal for sure. I hate cancer. I hope she goes peacefully. Remember the good times.
