Finally, Mercy comments

For all the 16 years of her devotion and love, all I can say is that in the end, I finally showed her Mercy.

Hi Alisa. I just wanted to let you know how moving this piece was for me; you sure have a way with words. Thanks for sharing these rare emotions—not the easiest thing to do, but why we love the art of writing.

Thanx CJ, I’ve taken to calling China “Ruffy” suddenly, I hope it is not a portent of things to come. We both need to find sainer jobs.

I, like you Alisa, dread the day when I will have to put down my own animals after having worked at the shelter where we both euthenize animals day in and day out. I wonder, when that day comes if I will beg for forgiveness because I gave them a life of being kenneled and not spending the much needed time each day with them or if it will be much like putting down any other animal at the shelter. There are moments when I think of an animal at the shelter, and know without a doubt that I care more for that animal than I do for one or two of my own.

The one thing that I hate the most about what it is that you and I do, is play God and decide who lives today and who doesn’t.

Long live Ruffy – may her spirit be filled with joy.

Very touching piece Alisa.
It’s hard for me to relate because I’ve never had pets, although I did have a number of younger siblings my mother let me drag around at the end of a rope! 🙂
