R.I.P sweet friends...
We have faced both the passing at home in my arms and at the vet when it became necessary.. I have to agree with you Alan, I prefer at home when the Lord is ready.
Either way, the hole in your heart aches for such a long, long time.
"There’s no changing people, and we can’t even help people with whom we’re emotionally involved. Let them be, stop expecting things from people who cannot provide those things, and recognize that we can live happy, productive lives regardless of what others, even close relatives, are doing or saying."
