Yes. A thousand times yes.
But what you can keep in mind is that you were there. You came to him when he needed you. I had a thread started when My G was dx with hemangio. SO many things happened during the week he was dx to when I decided to call vet for that moment (she came to my home and he passed away on his fave spot on the deck)...but the stuff that led up to this decision (incl using pain meds and questioning if that skewed his decline and my perception)...I never posted about. But the doubt a year and half later, still weighs on me. However, he was doomed, and he passed away with his head in my lap and seemed ready. So some solace there.
Death leaves a pain, no one can heal
But love leaves a memory, no one can steal.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
