    I'm relatively new to the forum, but everyone here has been so nice, I wanted to let you know we had to take our white wolf-Husky mix, Molly, on a one-way trip to the vet last week. Her back legs refused to work any longer, and at 14 years old, she'd earned a rest and the joy of being with her old Golden Retriever buddy at the Rainbow Bridge.

    I've never had to put a dog to sleep before. They've all run away, died on their own, or whatever. But my lady vet and the girl techs were SO sweet and understanding, it really helped. I was surprised at how peaceful it truly was. Molly was only anxious as we carried her to the van, and then to the vet's, in a blanket. I sat on the floor next to her and she trustingly laid her head on my leg. As soon as they gave her a "sleepy" shot, she didn't care what else they did to her. She gently slipped away.

    Of course, I'm crying as I type this. We still miss her terribly. And our black Lab mix, Shadow, is also grieving. (We took her to the vet's afterwards, so she knows why Molly won't be coming home.) But I know it was the right decision for Molly.

    I can now truly empathize with those of you who have been through this. It's the right choice, but it still hurts. Thanks for your kind understanding.

    So sorry to hear about Molly but pleased that you had the courage to be there for her.
    I had to have my 16yr old Yorkie put to sleep 4 yrs ago and it broke my heart, it was so peaceful and I held her while she fell asleep.
    Remember the good and happy times you had with Molly and the love you shared for each other and she will always be with you in your heart.
    Run free at the bridge now Molly xx

    Thank you, all, for your kindness. It hurts a little bit less when I read of your understanding. I'm not alone in my grief.
