We had to put down one of our dogs today. My wife did the heavy lifting of taking her to the vet.

Minnie, who we got as a rescue over six years ago, has been going downhill for a while. She’s been on medication for her heart and has had frequent coughing spells for congestion. She deteriorated dramatically in the last week or so. She just spent her recent days sleeping or licking a paw from stress.

She was a very good girl and I’ll miss her. RIP.
