Thanks for writing Rescuing Sprite. We just had to put our dog to rest and much of our Casey’s last days (pacing, etc) were similar to Sprite’s. We had other similarities, too, such as cremation and final resting place.

When the end was near, we also wondered which day was to be best, and could we put it off a few more days. We took Casey to the vet and we usually had to be firm on the leash to bring him in. On the last day, he slipped out of the car and walked to the vet’s door and laid down, waiting for us to catch up. Clearly, he was telling us it was the right time.
