I was angry today. I took my 12 year old best pooch buddy to the vet for some teeth to be removed. He started having seizures lastnight and today I had to let him be at peace. One of the most heartbreaking experiences I’ve ever been through and by the end he didn’t even seem to register that I was there, just looked like he was confused, distressed and that he’d given up. We took him to a pet crematorium and brought the ashes home, so I’m glad he got a proper send off instead of a group cremation.
