My son had to have his best friend Sandy euthanized on 5/5/08 at about 1000.
She was diagnosed with cancer 2-weeks ago.
She was already Stage IV, but they started her on a new vaccine and radiation. She had only one treatment of each, but she declined rapidly. Yesterday she had a bleeding ulcer in her mouth; the emergency vet gave her antibiotics and pain medication, but she was losing ground. She would not eat, and it was easy to see she was not feeling well.
My son called this morning and said she had a bad night, and he was going to let her go.
Bob called back about 1000, and said Sandy was now at rest.
What is best for our beloved friends is definitely not always best for us!
Please remember my son Bob and wife Tracy, and their best friend Sandy!

Dear PJC, Bob and Tracy,
I am so very sorry you have lost your beloved girl, Sandy. Many times the most merciful decision can be to let them go, but it is the most heart-wrenching and difficult decision. I know your hearts are broken. I hope you are comforted by wonderful memories of your sweet Sandy. She is now running happily through the meadows of the Bridge. The dreaded cancer and pain are long gone. My prayers are with you. Sending hugs, Melissa Betsy's forever mom

My deepest sympathy to you, your son Bob, and his wife Tracy. Losing a beloved friend, companion, and furchild is one of the hardest things to endure. Sandy is in a place of eternal love, she is healthy, no more suffering. I'm sure my Grunt was there at the Bridge with so many of our beloved ones to greet her. I'm so sorry for your loss, Katharine, Grunt's Mom Forever
