How do you know?

Charlie is not doing well.

Something changed in him last night. Perhaps he is beginning his journey over the bridge on his own?

How do you know when it is time to end their fight for them? Maybe I should just let him go peacefully at home. Am I being selfish? How am I the one to judge that it is time for him to go?

We have an appointment with the vet this evening - this is the second one I have made in a week. The first I cancelled.

My heart is breaking...

I'm so sorry. I know how hard this is. This can be our toughest and yet one of the most important roles we play in our pets lives...we are their advocates. And this is when we are their greatest champions...we bear the burden of the pain so that they can have peace. If you really look into your heart, you will know the answers to your questions. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

I dont know what my heart says. I just get to thinking that it is time, then my brain says "he is still eating and drinking" and overrules it.

Thank you so much for your words of wisdom.

I'm so sorry you have to make this kind of decision. It is never easy.
