    We just had to put our Cocker Angel down today because of a disk problem that caused paralysis in her hind legs. She was 9 years and two months. We felt terrible and were with her at the end. She had been in a lot of pain for two weeks and was not responding to steroids and pain medication. It was a relief to see her so peaceful after the needle. Angel was a gift from God and she will always be in our hearts. Thank you God for giving us those years with Angel.
