Take your best friend in and be at his side for the end. Show him the same love and compassion you always have. Don't let him go without the people he loved most in his life at his side.
Don't let him go scared and surrounded by strangers.
Now I'm gonna go dry my eyes and drink a lot of beer.
Very, very true. My golden could go live with somebody else and never even miss me as long as they fed him good. My German Shepard on the other hand I would put down before I got rid of him. I don't think he would make it without me. He is a wreck if I even walk out the door without him.
