I have three grown children, but one of the hardest things I have ever done was have the family dog, their companion, my youngest child's sibling, put down. I still wonder: should I have done things differently to prolong his life? Your grief is real and these shadows follow us throughout life. I'm guessing some folks without pets don't realize that they are like our children.
Your Molly was blessed to have you as her owner. Your love was a powerful medicine.
I love how I feel your emotions when I read what you have written.
Sorry to know this was your experience!
