Our BFF before yesterday's 5 hour vet appointment.
Today I had two people infer that we should just do the right thing and not let Dairy suffer. It took all I had not to shout out WE ARE VEGETARIANS! Having an animal suffer on our behalf goes against one of our strongest principles. Dairy might not be long for this life, but she is NOT suffering, yet. She still smiles and greets us and wags her tail for most anything. She enjoys long naps in the sun, sniffing other dog butts, riding in the car, and letting small puppies and children know that they should respect their elders. We might not speak the same language, but we communicate just fine, and when we see in her eyes that she has had enough of the good fight, we will do the right thing. (And I don't mean call the Pet Mafia, Rob.) Watching Dairy suffer would hurt much more than adjusting to a life without our beloved furry friend.
