This is a completely off the subject matter, but a really important one! I have a pomeranian, she's 18 years old! For all her health conditions she's beyond healthy, still frisky when walking around after her dog bath! But she has horrible Cataracts(Dog Blindness) It's gotten so bad what we can tell is she can she the outline of shadows. She sleeps most of the day, and b/c she can't see the dog door, the dosen't "go" outside. SO we have been putting dog diapers on her. I really hate seeing her restrained, not liviing the "doggy life"(liek playing, knowing her suroundings at all times, hearing well" What I what to know is, if you've had pets, when did you think it was their time to go??? She's been my dog since I was in pre-school, till now. And she's been loved more than anything. The doctor said it's amazing the great health she's in, (Pom's live to around 9-10)I don't want to choose her day to go, I want her to pass on her will...But I think I bring my own emotions in that "I'm not ready," Instead of her well being. What do you thing is the final factor to letting your beloved go?
