At 3:45 p.m. today, I made the toughest decision I have ever made.
I had to play god over my best buddy.
Jim has had a condition for a couple of years, called laryngeal paralysis. In a nutshell, it means he struggles to breathe, because only half his larynx works.
The vet told me some time ago, that it would only get worse.....just a matter of time before the inevitable.
That time was 3:50 p.m.
For just over thirteen years he has been my constant companion. Always there.
When I had my heart attack, he was there; he sat by my side all night, until the ambulance came.
And when I came home from the hospital, he was there; waiting for some love.
He never asked for anything; and in return, gave me everything.
Today I lost my best friend.
He suffers no more.
