It's going to feel pretty crappy when it happens, but the only reason it'll feel like crap is because we will have shared so many good times together. I have a feeling that even when she's crippled with arthritis, blindness and/or deafness, she'll always be a puppy to me

They deserve dignity and respect. Just because they may suffer from certain ailments based on age or deteriorated health, doesn't give us the right to decide for them. I feel that when we make these decisions, they stop being our friends and become objects.
