That's awesome, Tar Heel Mom. It was so much easier, IMHO, when Chey was PTS. They gave her a good once over, we talked about it with the vet and amongst ourselves, and then they gave her a heavy sedative, Ketamine I think, as a shot in her hip. Hubby picked her up off the floor and put her on the table and we all told our favorite Chey stories as I fed her hot dogs. She was never one to let a piece of food hit the floor, so when the last bit of the hot dog hit the floor, the vet gave her the pink stuff and she was just gone. It was just so nice and peaceful.
With the IM, it gave us one more time to see her tail wag and her ears prick up at the mere scent of the hot dog and she slowly drifted off instead of all at once. Twas nice and it gave us some great memories.
RIP Sebastian, Baby, Cheyenne, Baxter. Gone but never forgotten.
