5 things I wish you knew before euthanizing your dog – Kelsey Beth Carpenter


Click on the above link for this reflective, kind, helpful piece on a difficult theme by a veterinary technician. The writer of this post has seen many beloved creatures on their final journeys, and resonated with these comments, whether the creature is a dog or another animal. This is the last and one of the biggest things we offer them in relationship – a final gift of love from the heart – and that deserves to be given space, acknowledged and honoured.
