I just finished reading Rescuing Sprite. It was recommended to me by a friend because I am dealing with the hardest decision in “a dog lovers life”. My child, my chihuahua who is 7, her name is Fini, has congestive heart failure. I have brought her home to be with me and her little sister Willow for her remaining days. She has good days and horrible days. She is the love of my life. I have been agonizing over the decision I made to bring her home. After reading the book, I know that I have made the right choice and when the “time” comes, Fini will let me know. I also, will let her die here in her home with the help of our vet and in the comfort of my arms. My heart is breaking, but it is comforting to know that I am not alone. This is a different kind of loss. I have lost loved ones, we all have, but this is a different type of heartache. One, only a true dog lover can understand.
