This is beautiful and so true. I lost my beloved dog a year and a half ago. He was diabetic and blind for the last five years. With the help of a friend we totally cared for him and until his last days he was happy. Many people were telling me to have him killed because he was sick - and yes it was extremely expensive. But he was my best friend and how on earth could I do that for the sake of a few thousand dollars?
I would do it all over again. I would like to add this to my website and am going to send the copy to Charles Adler who loves animals and many times plays the story "How Could You"
