Exactly how I felt so when it came down to it, and after the vet gave me the options, I just decided I didn't want her to leave home. Dad offered to bury her (as he has all our animals) & the vet was shocked and worried I think that he wouldn't be able to manage (He's 30 yrs older than the vet!) Anyway my brother in law came home from work to help. So I got to spend 2 hours with her saying my goodbyes(after the vet left). Dad then did his usual sterling job with the minmum of fuss as only a retired farmer can! The only time he never did was when my horse died! But thats another story!
