This week for his provocative question, fandango asks us:
What’s the hardest decision you’ve ever had to make?
For me, this one is simple.
The hardest decision I ever had to make was whether or not to put my guide dog to sleep.
She had had a heart attack, but the vet was willing to put her in hospital, and give her fluids.
However, she was 13, and her quality of life was not good.
Her legs were not good, and she could barely walk.
So I made the decision to let her go.
It was heartbreaking. The vet was brilliant though.
He let me sit with her and I patted her and told her what an amazing dog she’d been.
I’ll never forget when he put the needle into her paw.
I cried like a baby.
That is the hardest thing about owning a pet, is when it comes time to put them to sleep.
Your never ready!
