Ok the good first. My OH is coming home tonight!!! He's a day earlier than expected and he will be home in 2 -3 hours time! I haven't seen him since July! Lou got the all clear at the vets, his feet have cleared up, I just have to keep an eye on them. And the sad bit. Whilst we were waiting for the receptionist to finish her call to check us in, I saw a man with his dog on his knee, half wrapped in a blanket, the bloke wiped tears from his eyes and I knew then what was about to happen. The dog was elderly, it's face was white all over. He was called in before I spoke with the receptionist. I sat in the waiting room and 10 minutes later, I saw the man carrying his dog completely covered in this blanket, past the window. I felt so sorry for him and it tugged at my heart strings, I cuddled Louie. I can't imagine ever having to make that decision.
