Here's to Nelson
« on: February 27, 2011, 10:25:10 PM »
Nelson was one of my boys, we had to put him down today. I did it myself, because that is what you do when your friend needs this, and a vet is not around. Weaz, I know why you did what you did. A toast to Nelson.

You did the right thing- as hard as it was to do.

Man, really hard to have to send him on yourself.
I feel for you, knowing it is really hard to do the necessary sometimes.

Hoisting one right now. 
Best wishes.

Thanks guys, your sympathy was greatly appreciated. Nelson was one of our boy goats for the girls. He was as much as a pet as anything else. Thank You.
