Our baby girl is gone
Today we put down our beloved dog Nicky. I called Homeward Bound last night to make an appointment anticipating the inevitable. I left a message filled with many emotional pauses caused by my grieving. Henry called back almost immediately. I found him to be patient, compassionate and informative. We set an appointment for today at 9:00 am.
Henry and the veterinarian Dr. Byarlay showed up on time. The sincerity in their compassion and patient attitudes made a very emotional situation less painful. We felt that we were among friends that truly cared.
When it came time for payment my wife inadvertently wrote the check for an amount above what I had been quoted. I would have not known of this mistake had Henry not called to request a replacement check for the correct amount.
Our baby girl is gone but we take solace to know that she went down in the comfort of her own bed surrounded by family and these two wonderful and ethical professionals.
