If you have time I would like to have a conversation with you about when I can expect the pain to subside. I know it has been 3 years for you. I have your book and I am afraid sometimes to read it. At other times I am glad I did-it has helped. I buried my 15 1/2 year old Chocolate Lab on 1/4/10, and I loved him so much-and he loved me. I struggle most with the fact that I couldn't bear to see him die so I could not go in the room with him at the vet's office. I decided to put Max down on a good day-that is killing me. But, had I waitied a few more days or even a weeek or two I would have felt guilty doing it with blood coming out of both ends-which I had witnessed a few days before I decided to do what I thought was the right thinge. Meta cam medication after 5 years had finally gotten to his stomach plus his hair was coming out in clumps. He would pace back and forth all night long for about the last few months. I am haunted by my decision, but I am feeling a little better each passing day. Thanks Mark. My number is 989-269-7760. Marc Schillinger, Port Austin, MI
I doubt Mark Levin will be able to respond to you directly. I am merely a fan of Mark's, but have lost pets myself. You did the right thing. It's normal to have the feelings you are having. Give it some time. Time will heal your wounds. 15 1/2 years is a long life for a Chocolate Lab. You should be at peace knowing you gave him a great life.
