We'll Miss You, Terra!

Tonight, I took Terra to the vet to have her put to sleep. She's had a great 14 years, and it was really hard for us to see her suffering and so unhappy. Ray and the kids were able to say their goodbyes, and I was able to sit with her until the very end.
After I got home, I learned that Cesira didn't really understand that Terra wasn't coming home with me. I think she's the most sad, because she's gotten quite attached to Terra over the last year. Ian and Ray were sad, too. And, of course, I am too. It was the hardest decision I've ever made.

Terra, we miss you already!


  1. Your quote for the day is right on. You are very brave. Hugs will take care of the headache!

  2. We're thinking of you. Nice to have pictures.

  3. So sorry. I know it is hard to have to put a pet down.

  4. How heartbreaking! I had to put Boober and Casa down a year apart from each other. What a miserable experience.
