Wow...how compassionate and unselfish of Jes to want to be "the one" to be there for his dog.
Read the following at your own discretion:
Many, many years ago while I was working as a vet tech, a pet was rushed in that had been hit by a car. He was crashing and his blood pressure was almost non existent. The owner made the wise decision to euthanize. But since the pets blood pressure was so low I was having a hard time finding a vein. Then the head vet tech comes up to me and says "let me do it. The needle just goes directly in the heart and it's over." And I said: "GO AWAY. If I can't hit a leg vein on the next try, I'll call you back here." And I did find a vein and the sweet little pet died with me by his side getting love, compassion and kindness. So many people work in vet medicine that have no heart. So thank the powers that be, for "Jesus Jeff"! And for the many other compassionate warriors that dedicate their time and lives to animal rescue/welfare.
ETA: I hope this wasn't a double post. My apologies if it is.
