I had to put down one of my Rhodesian Ridgebacks last evening. His health was going south quickly and I didn't want my buddy to suffer. I think as a pet owner, that's the hardest part...putting your best friend down for good. It's not the first time I've had to this and surely not the last. It doesn't get any easier. I'm gonna miss him. I truly believe it is one of the worst feelings in the world.
