One of my clients had to let their dog go this week...he was a Westie who was a hard case...they rescued him...and he was full of emotional and physical baggage that he just couldn't let go. Without warning this week, he mauled the husband's hand...and they decided that he getting worse with age. They gave him a number of good years, and the kindest thing to do was to have him pts.
Please keep them in your thoughts.
