I'm in a few situations where I have to think about this a lot, especially at the moment. People say to me that its the worst/hardest decision that we ever have to make. I have found that I disagree. If I truly know that it is what is best for the animal, then to me, its the easiest decision in the world because I always try to think about what's best for them at any given time and if that is to be put to sleep, then so be it- its better than them suffering. For me, after (or before, if I know it is coming), it breaks my heart to lose a friend and if its a long term illness I get very anxious about making sure I get the time right, but really, for them, I find it so easy. I just wondered what others opinions on this were. Do you find it easy? Or hard? How did you find having to make that decision for a loved animal friend? Sorry if this upsets anyone, by the way, that's not my intention. I'm just in the stage of knowing the decision may or may not be coming, that's all.
