~Much Sadness Today~

Today I had to put one of my dogs to sleep.  It is like losing a child.  He was fine this morning when we got up and then within a couple of hours he could barely walk.  After an examination and a series of xrays the vet informed us he had crushed a disc in his back and the fragments had entered his spinal cord.  They could try operating but the chances of recovery where very slim as he was over 7.  
I couldnt bare the thought of him suffering and so we made the decision to euthanize.   
It was the hardest decision ever.
