Sadly after writing my first post my husband and I had to take in our girl Belle. Belles legs stopped working and the vet said he felt a mass in her tummy. My husband and I have been married for 15 years and this is our first baby. When the vet asked if we had done this before it hit me, "no"and my heart sank. I suddenly felt for my parents who dealt with this same thing when I was a child an our many pets. I have to say for as nervous as I was it was very peaceful. Are vet was so nice. He even gave our girl cat food. A big treat for a dog. We sat with her till the end and gave her loves. We know Belle is in heaven with many of other awesome doggies. We will miss her.
