I was 19 years old when I made the decision to have my childhood pet Golden Retriever put to sleep because she was dying of chronic renal failure. Of course it was heartbreaking, and I cried tons, but I have never regretted my decision to end my dog's suffering. I did not want her to starve to death (she had stopped eating). It was never something I questioned. I knew it was the right thing to do. Before then, I never completely understood euthanasia. I understand now that in cases where the pet is suffering greatly from an incurable disease, it is an act of love.
