I'm new here...but my husband and I have been struggling with the decision to put our beloveed Murphy down for a week...he was bitten by a rabid raccoon and we have had to choose between euthansia and 6 month quarantine...we've agonized and we truly don't feel that our dog can put up with the quarantine...he would be miserable and lonely and our thoughts are that if he contracts rabies his last days would be alone....we can't bear that. So now we've decided to euthanize and we're feeling horrible...we're trying to spend his last day together doing things he loves...but it's so hard. We have a three year old daughter and we're trying to be strong for her while figuring out how to explain what' going on. I just could just teh support from others who've been there.
