The decision to euthanize Holly was one of the most difficult decisions of my entire life. I’m a vegetarian who sweeps ants into a dust pan and carries them outside. The thought of being in charge of another’s death was overwhelming to me, but it’s true that our animal companions let us know when they are “ready.” Calling on Dr. Forslund to assist my sweet girl home felt like divine intervention. It was as gentle, graceful, and as sweet as Holly was. I am eternally grateful.
