Thank you :)

This is the only thing that makes me feel better. Being a person who suffers "analysis paralysis" on basically everything, I have to keep telling myself I did the right thing. That shred of doubt, the one that says "she was acting fine, you should have let her live a bit longer"-- its a hard fucking thing to get out of your head.

Appreciate the response :)

We adopted an older dog a bit ago and after bringing him to the vet for an initial check-up, the vet told us we had to remove an eye due to unchecked glaucoma. The vet was livid at the shelter for not taking care of it (she felt their vet had to have known) and offered us a pretty steep discount on the surgery because she said that most people, who supposedly love their pets, just refuse to do it for selfish reasons while the dog suffers.

There is no doubt: You put selfishness aside and undoubtedly did what was best for Harley.

Thank you for the condolences, and the words of reassurance. It helps a lot. As long as I'm the only one beating myself up over this, I feel a little more like "i made the right decision."
