SleepyWeasel: Last Saturday we had to put our beloved Sasha down. She was 19 years old and suffering from sinus cancer. She has traveled more than most people, from PA to NC to OK to Okinawa to TX to NC again. The decision was agonizing for us and my wife actually caught flak from Facebook knuckleheads. In response she wrote and posted this on Facebook. I think it sums up everything:It's such an easy thing to sit back and judge, and believe me...I have done my fair share of it too. However, my Mom used to always say that we need to walk a mile in someone else's shoes to really understand them. I've surely lived long enough to realize how true that is. Every day people make choices and decisions that we just don't understand...because we haven't walked that mile in their shoes. ... Let me tell you friends, euthanasia is a hell of a thing ...it really is. To be given the ability, the privilege and the responsibility to end the suffering of a loved one...it's a hell of a thing. However, unless you have looked into the eyes of a beloved pet, a pet that has been your friend and companion for more years than most of the people you know, has traveled with you through countries and states, heart ache, pain and loss, and when your children have taken wing, and found their own paths, this dear friend spent as much time in your child's room, waiting for their return, as you have ...and you have had to try to decide if the quality of their life is gone...so completely gone that the most humane thing you can do is to have them "put down". Unless you have prayed more times than you can count, that you will just wake up one morning and find them...sleeping that endless sleep that will carry them peacefully on to their next life. Unless you have gotten up one morning, after so many mornings of wondering...if today is the day, and you think..."yes, I think this is it...I think it's time." Unless you have fed them their one last favorite meal, and held them tight and told them how special t ...
SleepyWeasel: Damn dust in here again. I'll admit it's not dust. I miss our girl.

VOCSL5: Just wanted to quick post:On 2-7-14, I lost Kuroi, my 10 year old little boy (black american short-hair). He'd been with me through everything in the last 10 years; truly my partner in life. I'm at work, so I can't post a pic, but here's to you Kuroi! :*(
lajimi: For some reason I'm having problems getting my pictures to post. While I understand that I'm going through some temporary (I hope) memory loss I can't believe I forgot how to post.[i236.photobucket.com image 500x450]

sherpa18: However, I just spoke to the vet, and she says all of this is normal and are good signs that he is getting over the hump, it will just take time to allow the meds to kick in. (breathes huge sigh of relief) We both love you all, and the white boy wants to let you know that he is "resting comfortably", as they say...[i415.photobucket.com image 640x458]
lajimi: A couple of hours ago I was transferred from the hospital to the rehab hospital, I was taken by one of the ambulances from my squad. The crew, the most thoughtful EMS crews that ever existed brought along a VERY special guest passenger. I haven't seen The Princess since I was taken to the Emergency room three weeks ago.
AlienDandelion: yeah I had yet another dumbass who mistook me for an easy target.I was on my way home from an interview and he came at me - so I gave him my bag...and something must have sethim off because all of a sudden he was swinging a knife towards my face...so I put up my hand to block him and got my thumb almost cut off.Bastard. Can't wait.... he will shiat his pants when he sees me at his court date.
