... the emotional component hinders tough choices ... understand the distinction between selfless and selfish.
Well said! Thanks for sharing this excellent advice.

As Alexi said in a previous post here, this thread is timeless. Which is why I feel compelled to add Magnum's story to this discussion. Anyone going through the agonizing decision of asking "Is it time?" will be better prepared by reading this beautifully written, and highly emotional account of her last few weeks.
Fair warning: grab a box of tissues. But when you're done reading, remember to celebrate Magnum's life, and those of all the other Tripawd pups who have gone before. The heartache of saying goodbye is just one small moment in time compared to all of the great days we had with our humans, never let that small moment take that away from all of the great ones.
