Our oldest dog, Harley, is being euthanized tomorrow morning at 8:30. This was a heartbreaking decision for me, and a horrible thing to have to tell the girls, especially given everything else going on in our lives.
Harley has multiple cancerous tumors, and due to her age, treatment isn’t a great option. She is also 16, and is starting to show more signs of her old age: she’s getting grouchy, her hearing isn’t reliable, and a few other things. Also, she’s not finding much comfort anywhere – she usually LOVES her crate, but has been leaving it trying to find comfort.
I had put together a list of 3 things Harley likes best, and if she stopped doing those things, I would make the appointment to have her euthanized. She’s long past that point, and since she is clearly in pain, I know I’m making the right choice.
However, since we are moving on Tuesday, this was just something I didn’t want to deal with at this time, or really at any time. Any prayers or vibes or good wishes for her or for me as I go to the vet with her would be gratefully accepted.
