It breaks my heart to read this and I know what you mean by having a proper good-bye. I've always made the decision to have the vet come to my home but it's expensive and I realize that it's not an option for everyone. His last few days should be spent in your arms, feeling the love flow.
Many prayers on the way Randi. ♥♥♥
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
Sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see
Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.
