Thank you to the Doctors and Staff of The Cove.
I would like to take a moment to thank all the Staff and Doctors that helped us with Smokey last week. There are two in particular who were absolutely amazing.
First, Sydney helped us with our paperwork and to understand the costs of what was happening. She was so gentle and kind. She really made us feel like she understood the position we were in and the decisions we would be faced with. Her understanding nature really helped us through the sadness.
Secondly, Courtney B., LVT worked closely with Dr. Thomas. She made the decisions to get as much information as possible that night so we could have all the facts to determine the best possible outcome for our Smokey before leaving the hospital. She knew how hard it would be for us to leave him not knowing if he would even make it through the night.
To have made the final decision to let him go that night was the most difficult decision my husband and I could make, but having the support of the staff, we know we made the right choice. This was the first lost for our kids, and they took it very hard. They know he is in a better place and is with his first brother Baily dog.
