I’ve had more than 33 dogs in my life, as well as nearly as many or more cats and a pet goat, a pet pig, two guinea pigs, a duck, an iguana and other reptiles. Not my first rodeo, as they say. I’ve made tough decisions many times but the fact that Pooh has no “sickness” like cancer or heart disease or kidney failure seems to make it worse. She’s like a puppy in so many ways. Thank you for reading and commenting, Stephanie. I helps to know others sympathize and understand.
