I’ve been asked to help “put down” a dog here at Cold Bay. This is something nobody likes to do, and as a dog lover, I feel it is important to limit the suffering of an animal. I will start the IV and the owner who loves dogs will push the lethal drug. It will be sad. Death is final. It will be humbling to watch a loved creature cease its life. It will be something I will undoubtedly have to do again.
