it’s been a week since I had to say goodbye to my Scout.  I know it had to be done but that doesn’t help my hurt.  I never thought I was the type to get so emotional over my four legged friend.....oh but I was/am.  

I have been tough and going through the motions the last month doing what I needed to do to make sure when the time came I could make the right decision.  Talking with the vet I never shed a tear.  Which is why today when I look back I have to laugh.  Not laugh because the situation was funny but because of what I became...A huge baby!!!

Now let me say , I knew I would cry....but oh my ...I did not just boo hoo cry , I was wailing, my poor vet probably thought “what the heck happened to her” he probably considered calling 911 in fear that I was going to have some sort of attack.  

Seeing my trooper, soldier dedicated and loyal comrade lying there and me knowing what was coming I just lost it.  I stroked his ears and continued to whisper ...“you were the best dog ever and I am so sorry , go now, go rest, you deserve it”  and then that was it , the shot was administered and my friends heart stopped.  Although it was so terribly sad I would never change it, if he had to go I was going to be right there just like he had beens there for me so many times.  

I am now one of those folks........Pets are family!!!  who would have thought???
