Besides being my 36th anniversary today, we decided that today is the best time to take Maggie, our Springer Spaniel, to be put down. She's somewhere between 14 and 17 years old, partially blind, deaf, and recently incontinent.The vet thinks she may have cancer, and we didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on more tests, so we decided to let her go today. We are going away for a week on Thursday, and we didn't want to leave my son and DIL to clean up her messes.
I'm very sad just now, but she had a good, happy life, and was a very sweet, playful dog. We will miss her.
