Have a question for you: if you had to put your pet down, would you (or have you) cut off some of their fur before doing so?
I read a blogger who's dog suddenly became very ill and had to be put to sleep and she cut off the fur at the tip of his tail to save. I've never really heard of anyone doing that before and I don't know that I could. I have saved puppy teeth and a tooth that Brut lost that I know I will treasure forever, but for some reason I think it would freak me out to have an actual "piece" of my dead dog. But I don't know. I don't think there is anything wrong with what this blogger did, but I don't think I could do it. I just think I wouldn't feel right taking a piece of them when it is their time.
How do you feel? Could you do it? Or have you done it? I'm curious to hear other people's responses.
