Saying goodbye to a horse

The Czar of Muscovy movingly posts about a friend who had to say goodbye to a much loved horse.  Anyone who has every had a dog will recognize the moment.

Some day, I will have to do this with Wolfgang, when he is in a constant pain that will never end.  Not looking forward to that day.

I've had to do it twice, personally. Poor folks don't always have $50-100 to pay the vet. It brought tears to my eyes both times.

THe lost of a pet is always hard to deal with.

One never truly gets over it. Yet we often open our hearts up again to another four-legged soul.

My older Great Dane was in a lot of pain from his hips and knees. Our vet of over 20 years told us to try Ellevet. It's CBD oil where you use drops according to weight, in my case 30 drops. Not cheap but in 2 days he was acting like he did when he was 2!
I took him to the vet to be checked out as he had trouble standing up. Getting a 170 pound Dane up is, well, interesting.

And no I have no ties to them in anyway shape or form
