she was almost 15 years old and for the last year or so she was declining. Now she blew a knee and tore the miniscus and the vet said she was to old and feeble to handle surgery, she was in a lot of pain and pain pills weren't helping, the last few days she wasn't eating or drinking, just laid there and was in pain. So one last trip to the vet who said there was nothing more he could do for her and the kindest think to do was let her go. As you can imagine my sister is heartbroken. We all know how it feels to loose one but that is little help to her now.
