The vet I work for has a retired greyhound named Ollie. Ollie is now around twelve and in poor health. I feel so sorry for my boss and him. I never realized how difficult it must be for vets to have to euthanize older sick pets when the loss of your best buddy is so near. I see it in his eyes every time he has to do a euth. We all love Ollie he comes to work with his Dad almost every day. He will be missed by all when his time comes. I just don't know how Doc will handle it. It's so different to see the other side of the page. My heart goes out to both of them.
