This is my dog Clover Dilly. She’s actually a pretty sick little pup, which is why she’s skinny in this photo. She’s got Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, Diabetes, Anemia, and Epilepsy. Because of these things, she’s sensitive to infections which we battle as they come. On top of all that she also happens to be super accident prone.
Most people wonder why I don’t just put her down.
But Clover is the happiest dog I have ever seen. Never in my life have I come across a dog who can be having a seizure one minute and be wanting to play fetch the next. Sure, if she was in pain, and there were no other options, then maybe putting her down would be the humane thing to do. But that’s not Clover. That’s not me.
