Re: Putting a dog "to sleep"
When a pet dies, I think it's best to get a new pet as soon as possible. It helps turn the sadness into something positive.
When my cat died a few years ago, my wife and I and our other cat were miserable for weeks before I finally decided we needed another cat. My wife resisted at first, but it turned out to be the best thing for us.
