Being familair with Jojo's story, and knowing you as I do, I am sure you will do what is best for her. As awful as saying goodbye is, if you believe her quality of life has degraded to the point where it is no longer to her benefit.. well, she deserves a peaceful end to what was a very hard life.
She is very lucky to have spent the end of her time with you. I am sure she knows how much you love her.
All of our hearts go out to you.
Karen, Isis, Plunkett, and MacCleane.

I dread the responses to this.
Most of you know Jojo's story. Came here horribly abused and malnurished. It was a miracle she survived, and more than she began to get better.... then stopped getting better.
The look on her face and my instincts tell me it is time to let her go in peace. And yet, it is hard for me to say that because the poor girl has had such a miserable life.... I so wanted her to know a loving home.
I guess I need some reassurance that it IS time to say goodbye and the right thing to do.
