You and your husband are so good to have opened your home to Shadow.
Your posts on this forum are a testament to how much you love him and how grateful you are for the positive impact he has had on your life.

Every person who has followed your posts knows that you are doing what you believe is best for your Shadow.

I hope you read this. I know you will not respond.

We all do the best we can with what we have. No one has any right to expect or demand that we do more, regardless of personal feelings or beliefs.
You brought a young, sad, frightened dog into your home, and into your heart. You put aside your misgivings and gave him the very best you could. As sad as it is that he has to leave you so young, consider that had you not stepped in he would be suffering and in pain somewhere where no one cared. Every tear you shed is a testament to your love. These decisions are never easy, if they were they wouldn't be decisions. I wish you peace on this journey and hope that in the coming darkness you find the light that Shadow left for you.
They all come to us to guide us through a small part of our journey, to take us to the next part. They give so much, and ask so little. Unlike us mere humans they do not condemn or judge, they simply love.
And that is the lesson, that's what they need us to know. In the end the whys and what ifs don't matter, time is irrelevant. All that matters is the love.

Godspeed Shadow.

So well said Sabis mom.

Surgery may not be an option for them and they have made the decisions they have made with the dog's best interest at heart.

What I was able to do for my dog may not have been possible for them.

I'm so sorry to hear your news. I believe that we all have a significant bond with our dogs and that only we, as their carers, can make decisions in their best interest. Whatever you decide, you understand your circumstances and those of your dog and I wish you all comfort in the decision you make.
