My cat, "Minou", is being put to sleep on Friday afternoon. He's almost 15 years old.

The little dog gave us excellent company for 16 years. He proved to be a good watchdog, too, scaring off at least 2 intruders from neighbouring properties. He eventually developed arthritis, which slowed him down drastically, and he suffered a very steep decline in his last two weeks. So after a night of constant barking, whimpering and crying, and sometimes all 3 at once, it was clear it was time for the vet. (His timing was off. If he'd started 6 hours earlier, I'd have taken him to the vet then.)
He is buried under our jacaranda tree, and I have made a little plaque to commemorate him. It is screwed to the tree.
