Do your best to greet that person as a friend, and it can make things easier all 'round.

As mentioned, our pup is 11 now and she is slowing down. I hope that Bonnie and I never have to make the decision about putting her to sleep. It would be wonderful if she just passed naturally when that time comes. However, I would do that if the dog was in pain and suffering. They have such great spirits...such loyalty.
