One of my dearest friends and my sister-by-choice and her son had to make the hardest decision for one of her furry companions this week. After Scooter was diagnosed, my friend did everything she could to maintain her quality of life and finally it was no longer possible to do that. One of the hardest part about being the human in these relationships is that we have to make the selfless, difficult choice to keep a being who shows us such grace and love from suffering. And it sucks. But they make it worth it, every day that they are in our lives.
So Rest in Peace Scooter. You were a good companion and I know you'll wait for your people at the Rainbow Bridge.
