All the people that assisted us treated our Chocolate Lab, Gauge and us with the most respect and dignity, one could ever ask for in an unbearable situation. They are all truly one of the best. My husband and I will forever be grateful to them. Also to the lady that went outside, when we were in there after she realized that our dog was ill, thank you for the hug you gave my husband when he walked out, we don't know you, it still meant a lot to us."
