There's no one posting to keep me entertained so I will. Although it won't be entertaining.

I'm sitting at the kitchen table waiting for it to be time to take Binka to the vet for the last time. We have an appointment at 11.15am.

While she seems almost normal she's breathing too fast and it's noisy as the air whistles through the obstruction in her nostrils.

She's quiet, preferring to lie out flat rather than paying attention to what's happening. And when we open the gate, she walks rather runs to greet us.

If we were home for the next week, I'd just watch her and wait a little, but we're not. And MsNotaGoth doesn't need the concern during her first week of school.

I met a good friend at the market this morning. As she said, the sooner I choose the more likely it is that Binka will have the death I'd prefer.

I guess that's what I'm doing.

Vale Binka.

She was a nice dog.

I'm so sorry to hear this. It's a horrid thing to have to do, but in my view the only right one. You're in my thoughts.

Even though it is a hard decision, you are making the right one. I am thinking of you.

supportive thoughts. Hope it went OK and the vet agrees and stuff.

It is a hard decision, but it is better to do it before it gets really painful for her. Lots of sympathy.

Poor Binka - and poor you.

She was a lovely dog.

I'm sorry :(
At least you could be with her at the end.

Oh.

I hope it went all right this morning; in the least that her death was peaceful.

Poor Browns.
