Late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning, we made the difficult decision to say goodbye to Howie, our foster dog. He had been diagnosed with kidney failure just one month prior, and after a very good week, things went bad on Tuesday night, and showed no signs of getting better, with him starting to lose function in his right hind leg. He could not settle and was obviously incredibly uncomfortable.
And yet, it was still an incredibly difficult decision to make. Though he had been with us only fourteen short months, Howie had found a place in our home and our hearts.
