it sucks to be a wrecked senior end of the road rescue...as much as we want to...we just cannot take them all.

sarcee and cowboy were euthanized by their owners yesterday..there was nowhere for them to go. there is not a person involved, either in alberta or here at saints who will not be wishing this had a happier ending for these innocent dogs whose only real crime was in being old and wrecked and in crises at a very bad time.
at some point we as a society have to deal with the issues of the outcomes for senior animals in crises...they have survived a whole lifetime of use by us and yet in the end, there is nothing or no one there to catch them when they stumble and fall and find themselves of no further use to anyone at all.
they deserve better than that.
there are so many unwanted seniors...how do we help people to want them???.. how do we make seniors such a wonderful national treasure that no home is really complete without one laying by the fire?
rest in peace sarcee and cowboy..you were good old dogs...some day maybe things will be different..but don't come back again as an old dog..its too hard of a life to live happily and well.
