      So very sorry you have to let Buster go, but you are doing this because of your great LOVE for him. It is the hardest thing to do for a pet but the most precious thing you can give him.

      Like the others have said, we will be over in a corner of the room with you giving you strength. to you and your Buster.

      I slept on the couch last night and pulled Buster's bed next to me to be as close with him as I could for as long as I could. Had a wonderful night petting him and fell asleep with my hand on him. I wanted to change my mind so badly this morning but I know that isn't what is best for him. I know life will go on, but I don't know how I can live without him. He's been nothing but a wonderful companion, and protector for all these years.

      Even more reason not to let him suffer anymore.
      Many here know your feelings and have questioned their decision on timing, but look at Buster's life of love and see he is counting on you.

      He knows how much you love him and will do what is best for him. Now you are his protector. Sending hugs to you.

      OMG, this made me cry but in a good way. I needed this - thank you so much. There's never a "right time" to let your best friend and family member go.

      When I had to made the decision for My Cracker, the wonderful people of this board helped me and stood with me, then afterward, they REALLY helped me as I had the 'what if or should I' questions. In the end, they helped me to see that it was my Cracker that was important, not what I thought about myself. And truly, at the vet's office after it was over I felt so relieved that he was in no more pain or distress (he had osteosarcoma and it had metastasized).

      I am not wise enough to know 'the right time', all I know is I should not let my best friend and companion suffer in any way.

      Hugs again and be strong for Buster.

      This is such a tough thing. DH made the appt and got us in at 4:30 this afternoon. I immediately broke down and told him to cancel. He's leaving it in my hands to cancel (despite him disagreeing with me) - which is the easy option- for me. Just cancel and keep hanging on to Buster for as long as I can. I know in my heart I don't want him suffering, but my heart can't handle the pain of him not being with me. He's snoozing at my feet as we speak and not having that closeness is too much for me to handle. I'll miss taking the extra care of him as I have for the past year when he started to deteriorate. I might even miss all the sheets and towels we have to wash daily ;-(
