Letting Go

amywink March 10th, 2010

I lost my lucky dog this week. We came to the end together and I made the decision to let go after a sudden and terrible seizure left him no longer himself. I’ve been reading Jon Katz’s blog and his recent comments on end of life decisions for our pets, which seem particularly timely as I knew Tristan’s life was coming to a close. It was the right time for both of us and I am lucky to have no regrets about my decision. But I remain sad and grieving for my 17 year companion, who was, as Edith Wharton said, “the little heartbeat at my feet.”

Tristan, rest in peace.
