Happy Caturday!
 
2014-03-01 09:10:46 AM  
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 they are to you, and how much your life has been enriched by their presence, and then loaded them in the car for that final drive to the veterinary's office. Until you have sat in that office, waiting....with so many other pet families, some with new additions, looking for their clean bill of health, some just getting their yearly check-up and some...like us...that wait for that final appointment. You sit there and WAIT...and try not to cry...not yet...because you want to hold on just a little bit longer, and you don't want them to be scared...and you wait for that call, when they say her name that one last time. When that time comes, you pray for the strength to not stop the doctor because you really do know it's time, and when the doctor puts the needle in their leg, you stroke them, and talk to them assuring them it's okay, and tell them how much you love them, and you wait...you wait until you see the life leave their eyes, the sparkle that you have seen for almost 2 decades, and when it does, you weep...despite the fact that you promised yourself you wouldn't...then you carry them back home...one last time...and bury them under the weeping cherry, next to their other companion. Then my friends, you pray that you were right, and that it really was the right time, and that they didn't blame you and that they weren't scared...and you pray that you didn't wait too long to do it, and that they didn't suffer, and you pray that someday you will see them again. It's easy to judge, it really is...but unless you have walked that mile in our shoes, and other's like us, who have had to make that final decision, than you haven't even come close to earning the right to judge us...not one way or another...so I ask of you, quite literally, please spare us your judgment and your hurtful comments regarding it, because friends, let me tell you...euthanasia...it's a HELL of a thing.

Damn dust in here again.  I'll admit it's not dust.  I miss our girl.

SleepyWeasel, please relay my (and I'm quite sure many others of our family) condolences to you and your wife. Most of us have walked this mile and not only agree, but understand what your wife so beautifully described. The final act of love, pure, unselfish LOVE we do for our furbabies.
Sasha will always be in your heart, and one day you will reunite at the Rainbow Bridge.
