For Dede Croy, her dogs are more than just pets.
"They're my life. They're my family," said Croy.
After 13 years together, one of her dogs, Duke, became ill. It took two veterinarians and a gamut of tests, but finally the vets had a diagnosis. Duke had an enlarged heart chamber and a collapsed trachea.
After a few months of treatment, it became clear, then end was near for Duke.
"I cried the entire way home. I just knew he wouldn't be with us much longer," said Croy.
"It is a privilege to be able to make that choice for the pet you've loved for so many years," said Croy.
