    Prayers for you and the family. I have been where you are. Like others said - remember the good times.
    Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    My sympathy to you and your family. No dog lover ever wants the time to come. It always breaks your heart. Hope your many wonderful memories will be of comfort now.

    Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. It is never an easy decision to make, and I have had to make it myself. Try to think of all the good times and the memories that you have. She will no longer be in pain.

    I am so sorry for you and your family. I don't know what the quote means, but if you have the strength be with her and hold her and tell her what a great girl she is. I have done that twice and as I look back, I am glad I was there holding them. God bless and always look back at the memories. My girl is only 4 and my wife and kids are so worried about how I will take it again some day. I spend so much time with her that we have a special bond. We are going out tomorrow for the opening day of waterfowl season and I will cherish it even more as I think about what you are going through. Good luck.

    Am sorry to hear it. Best wishes. Despite the well meant condolences on my last pup from friends and family - the single biggest comfort was my vet putting the dog down after closing, outside,sitting together in the grass. Just wanted to mention it. It's hard enough as it is, it did make a difference for us both.

    The greatest love we can show is to let them go with dignity and peacefully. It's not an easy decision, but you are showing the love you have by thinking of her first and foremost. My thoughts will be with you and your family.
