I had intended to write something funny for today.
Instead, I find myself simply unable.
We’ve had to make the hard choice to say goodbye to Bazinga the Wonder Dog.
In talking to our vet, going over the x-rays again, there’s simply no other option.
We’ve switched pain meds, since the first ones weren’t doing the job.
These ones aren’t quite cutting it either.
Keeping her going, only to have her pain levels increase, is just wrong.
She deserves better than that.
It’s breaking all of our hearts, but we know that, for her, it’s the best decision.
And it sucks.
And it hurts.
And we don’t want to say goodbye.
But we will do the right thing, put what is best for her ahead of our misery at the thought of being without her, and say goodbye.
To give the children, and ourselves, time to say goodbye, to treasure these last days.
