You did a very kind thing and I hope your other dogs are as understanding.
Well I didn't want to say anything but since you brought it up that is exactly what she was going to do. She said before she left she was so happy that she found a home for Hanna because she was afraid she would have to put her to sleep.
I was kind of shocked but I can also understand it as well. I guess if it were me I would rather put my friend down than to know that she sat in a kennel the rest of her life or sat in kennel for weeks and then was put to sleep alone and with strangers around her.
It is a tough choice I hope I never have to make.
It seems so human when the animal is very sick or is very old but when they are perfectly healthly...well like I said I hope I am never faced with that.
And so far my other dogs seem to have no problems. All three are getting extra attention so no jealousy raises it head. They seem fine with each other. Both of my other dogs have had other dogs in their life than each each other and were adopted from other homes so if anybody understands how it feels to have a new family it is them
