Our yellow lab, Lucy, is in failing health.
She's not been well for a while. Kidney Failure, weight loss, confusion....
She's old and we knew she was not well.
But still it's tough, looking at her, a trusted and loved member of our family, knowing that she's dying.
We're taking her in on Saturday to let her go.
Keeping her alive any longer is unfair to her.
She's been my husband's much-loved pet for many years.
Longer than I've been his wife, in fact.
This will be hard on our family.
Knowing she won't be here to wag her tail when we get home.
But knowing she'll be free of pain is of some comfort.
