How do you decide to kill a friend and companion of 14 years?

When do you come to the decision?

When she can no longer hear the barking in the street? When her eyes grow gray? When cancer is snaking up her bones and pain chews at her every waking moment? When there is no comfort you can offer her but death?

And how the hell do you live with it, afterwards?…

P.S.: One thought: If the roles were reversed, I hope she’d make the same choice to end my life.

I love you, baby girl…
