My dog has been slowly going downhill since last summer - old age issues, not sickness.

Its gotten worse since Christmas and again last week.

I took her to the vet and she thought it was time to put her down - she gave me some painkillers and told me to "find peace" with saying goodbye and then give her a call to schedule it.

I cant do it...... how do you find peace with something like this?

She will be 17 in April so she has had a nice long life
