It was a hard decision to make, but her health had been deteriorating over the last year. The other day she stopped eating, and even today she didn't finish her treat....so I knew it was time. I did not want to stand by and watch her go further down hill.
So, today I had the day off work. Lucy and I slept in. I skipped her ear drops because she hates getting them. We went for a little walk around the drive way. We sat outside. We cuddled on the couch. All in all it was a nice last day together. Then, at about 4 o'clock I lost it and cried until my mom came around 4:40 to take us to the vet.
It was a long day. I'm glad it's over.
I know tomorrow when I walk in the door from work and don't hear her jump off the couch to greet me my heart will break all over again, but I know I made the right decision.
