Im never going to know how any of that feels and it hurts that I was never able to know that kind of joy or see myself in a miniature version of myself. I was the mom to a miniature Poodle for 18 years and we spent every day together, ate our meals together and slept together.
The last year was the hardest not only because he was losing his memory and use of his legs but because I constantly dreaded the worst case scenario. I ended up putting him to sleep because I would rather deal with the regret and pain of what I did rather than risk him being alone and suffering at his time of passing.
