My heart goes out to both of you! I had to put down the first dog I ever had since childhood. He had spinal problems. He could have lived a few months or weeks longer. But like your Sister, my final act of love to someone I loved so much, was to not let them suffer anymore.

I am so so sorry for your sister's loss. I know it well, and each time hurts just as bad as the first.
