27 July 2014
On Thursday, July 24 we said goodbye to our dearest boy Milo.
Life had become very challenging for Milo as his mobility had decreased to the point where daily trips out to potty were becoming increasingly arduous for him and he needed assistance not only to rise, but to potty without collapsing.
While logically I know that quality of life over quantity of life is the best thing we can offer our beloved pets, it is a very different journey emotionally. I wanted so much for him to rally and share more time with all of us, but he was existing and not living.
It was a terrible decision to have to make, but it was the kindest thing for him.
I was so grateful to our vet who helped us navigate through the many health issues and, for this final visit, allowed Milo to rest comfortably in the grass outside the clinic and drift off to sleep. No stress from slippery tiles and medicinal rooms.
Milo was so very loved and so very missed by me and by the many who shared his journey.
Sleep well my friend. There have been many tears for you.
