Please do not tell me that "You told me so" when it came to Tilli.

Do not tell me that no one will want Tilli.

Do not tell me that we'd be better off just putting her to sleep.

We are making a decision that we're not happy with.

Its a traumatic decision for us.

We are not rejoicing that Tilli will be leaving our lives.

Its been a failure on our part, and if anything, we are ashamed that we did not fufill our responsiblities to our pet.

So please don't say anything mean or condesending about our dog because we love her and its breaking our hearts to give her up. If you do say something, be prepared to either have me start crying or to yell at you. I'm not kidding.

Sorry, honey, for saying those kinds of things right now when it is all so painful. I apologize.

That is such a bummer about your dog. Animals really do become a part of your family. As hard as it is, it sounds like you are doing the right thing. It's just that sometimes the right thing stinks. I'll be praying for you and your family.
