RE: Grey Area
Sigh.... (as tears well up in my eyes) Debskis, Onebad and HWDGrl have said quite a bit.
It is true it is one of the hardest things to do. The summer of 2000 we had to make that choice for our Sophie. She was a Gordon Setter/Golden Retriever mix. She was our first Fuzzy Child, the very first pet for our Girls and was loved unconditionally by all of us.

We got her in the spring of 1986 as a 6 week old puppy and was ment to keep me company while Mr.2Beers was working for Uncle Sam and traveling the globe.

So many memories... It was cancer that she had and when we realized that her quality of life wasn't what it used to be and keeping her alive was more of a comfort for us than her, it's then that we made the choice.

We told the Girls the truth and when the day came the Vet's office was outstanding in helping us. They gave us all the time we needed to say our Good-Byes and allowed us to hold her as they administered the shot, and then be with her until we were ready to let her finally go(I still cry even though it has been almost 12 years).

Just know when you decided what to do, we are here for you.
