Just wanted to ask for good vibes for my brother and his family, along with their yellow lab, Max, who's 13. Found out at a family picnic on the 4th that they are considering having this sweet, loyal boy put to sleep because his arthritis has gotten so bad he can barely walk. He's been on medication for a couple of years, but it's at the point where his legs often just collaspe underneath when he tries to stand They've had since he was a puppy, before they got married. Max, along with Sammy (the cat, still going strong) were their kids before the human ones came along. Their vet is recommending letting him go, but my brother who gets very attached to his animals (runs in the family) is really struggling with this. He and my sister-in-law are also concerned about how my five-year-old niece, who's extremely close to Max will handle it. Please send good vibes for them as they deal with making this decision, and for sweet Max, who's has been such a faithful and loved member of the family.
