i held her till she went to sleep. then the vet gave her the other shot. i held her or caressed her til there was no more breath. it was hard.but neccesary. i toldf her yesterday she would hurt no more after today. she was named for hannah of the bible. her pups were samuel and rebecca and others of biblical names. her nephew is eli. also from the bible. hannah was told she was a gift from God and she showed it too. the scripture today before we went to the vet, was eli passing. this was the confirmation i needed for the action being taken. thank all of you for your prayers and heart felt love. sorry some were reminded of the lose in there life. colossians 1:12 says we all cross each others paths. this is such a blessing. just like the people on this line.
