We were a happy family of 3 poodles for almost 5 years. Sadly, on February 23, 2010, I had to make the very difficult and extremely sad decision to have Sonny put down. He had suffered pain for almost his entire life, but he remained sweet and gentle in spite of that. But I could tell that his pain was now getting to be too much. He could barely walk anymore. I loved him far too much to let him suffer anymore. Sonny taught me many life lessons. While we will get another poodle, we know that Sonny will never be replaced. Sonny will always hold a very special place in our hearts.
