Redford, MI – The most difficult part of owning a dog isn’t the potty-training and it isn’t the dog hair…without question, it is dealing with the painful reality of death. Even more painful than a dog’s peaceful passing is the excruciating decision to have your companion euthanized – choosing the day that you have to say good-bye.
For a family in Michigan, that painful choice has been made more difficult than anyone could ever imagine. According to WXYZ Action News, Matt Olivarez made that difficult decision last Saturday for his 10 yr-old Rottweiler, Mia.
Mia was suffering from spinal problems that were causing her pain, and making it difficult to walk. Her veterinarian recommended euthanasia as the humane choice in light of her condition.
The difficult decision was made and Olivarez watched the veterinarian administer the 2 shots to end Mia’s life. The dog closed her eyes and the veterinarian advised that she had passed. Olivarez brought his dog’s body home so that his wife and children could say their good-byes and give her a buriel.
