    I know that only another animal lover will understand when I say "let him maintain his dignity" means. Our pets are so important in our lives. They may not be able to communicate in the voices we all understand, but any dog or cat lover (or other animal lover) will tell you that they can completely understand what they pet is telling them.
    I had a Australian Terrier/Poodle mix, she reached 13 years old and was going deaf, blind and a bit senile. One night she went out for a walk and didnt come back till 3 days later(in this was the middle of the winter).
    When she came back, I knew she knew that it was not much longer. My wife and I didn't want to see her suffer and we couldnt see her just continuing for our benefit. We had her put to sleep. It was one time, we dropped off a pet to have this done. NEVER again. We had to put another dog to sleep and I held him in my arms after the lethal injection made its way into his body.

    Cory, I pray and hope that Shadow can rebound and feel more like himself. If not, I know you are a man of integrity and principal and will know the right thing to do.

  • It is so nice to know that others out there have the same kind of love for their pets as I do. They have a way of getting into your heart. Please know that both you and Shadow are in my prayers. Hope Shadow has a better nite tonight.
