RE: Grey Area
Thank you both so much for your thoughtful and heartfelt replies. I know I sound like I'm being very pragmatic about it, but the reality is that I too am pretty attached to the stinker. I get so frustrated with him (he's gotten even MORE stubborn with age!), and many times I think I could just take him at a moments' notice to have him put down without a second thought, but I know when the time comes I'll be a wreck and I will miss him dearly!

Stephen, that photo of sweet Monty just is so precious and sad...really brought me to tears. I can only imagine how hard it was for you both!!

The kids don't yet know that we are seriously thinking about having Zack put down. The Vet has been really understanding about our financial limits and willingness to go to extreme measures, but again, without serious money in diagnostic tests, he can't be sure what his actual prognosis is.

My thought right now is that we probably aren't ready to move on it quite yet. I think, and maybe I'm wrong, that it will sort of be like deciding who to marry - when you know, you know - and we just don't KNOW that it's time with absolute certainty, so maybe we should wait a little longer. I just need to separate my emotion and frustration with him from the equation, and really look at what is best for the old guy.

Thanks again...so glad to have ya'll to bounce this stuff around with!
