A Spark of Light Left the World (non-GSD)

Today, I made the horrible choice of letting my 15 year old love bug of a shih tzu go. He was just six weeks from turning 16. He went down quickly and it wasn't a kindness to keep him lingering. Days like this are the days where I'm not sure I'm strong enough for pets. I cried until I had a massive headache, but the hurt in my heart will be hard to recover from. He was loving, playful, affectionate (SO affectionate), forgiving and an all around wonderful member of the family.

Today is not a good day.

I'm so so sorry. It's hard to find a sweeter dog than a shih tzu.

I am sorry, but thank you. It is such a hard choice. It is the last gift we can sometimes give our four-legged friends, to make passing as easy as possible. But it is still so hard to do.
