An update on my "Buddy" post

I am still getting comments on our decision to put our dog, Buddy, to sleep.

"Barb" commented on my decision and her comment led me to a response that perhaps may give more insight into my decision.  When I wrote that post I was in the middle of my grief and honestly, I knew that it would create a lot of controversy.  That's okay. 

Many of you have been so kind, others have offered advice and then there are always those who will disagree with me, which is perfectly okay, but then go on to describe me as a Nazi dog killer.  Obviously I didn't reply to those individuals or even post their comments as they responded Anonymously.  At least, have the courage to respond with your name or to e-mail me.

This morning I decided to respond to the comments with more information and instead of doing another post, read my comment to Barb.

Thanks Barb and all of the other followers who responded, many with the gentle criticism which I appreciate.  Go here to see my response:  http://thepathtofrugality.blogspot.com/2012/02/making-mistake-and-moving-on.html.

I am so sorry you had to go through not only the difficult decision about your dog but negative comments from strangers. You clearly made a great effort to rescue this dog. My heart goes out to you.
