Subject: What to do... ( There is saddness in this post).

My parents put my dog to sleep on friday. And said nothing about it to me or anyone else in the family until we started asking where she was a day later... I came home from work on friday night late and I noticed she did not welcome me at the door or anything, my other dog baby was there but mecco wasnt around. She had lost 75% of her hearing so I thought perhaps she was sleeping. The next morning i was running late I saw baby on my way out the door however again Mecco wasnt around I figured she was hikeing around (the nieghborhood dogs have a mountain behind our subdivison all to themselves). So when I got home that afternoon I went in the office to send out some emails for work, I heard my brother in the other room very upset with my parents him and his wife were staying with us for the weekend.
I ran in the room with my heart pounding I just kept saying "i can't understand this!" My sister inlaw knew of this before we did she then made a very ugly comment to me her comment was this ( if you cared so much for her why did it take you 24 hours to notice she wasnt around). I couldn't talk to anyone, my mother kept saying that she didnt want her to start suffering like Mocha, our dog we had put to sleep this summer. Mecco was a very differant case She was 17 we had her since she was a puppy she was old loseing most of her hearing and she did have a form of skin cancer on her right shoulder, However she was very active. Mocha was very ill and lost the ability to stand and had stopped eating.
I grabed my keys and havent been home since. I have been staying with a friend. I'm going to call the vet tomorrow as it will be the first they will be open since i have heard about her being put to sleep to see if her body is still there. I want her ashes to be put on the mountain. I just don't understand this heartless choice. I understand putting a dog to sleep because of thier health however I thought she would have at least 6months to a year of a happy life. And Not to tell us?? I just can't speak to my parents right now at all. I dont know how to get over this i have been numb. Even through family problems my parents have always made sense to me however the saddest thing about this is I have no Idea who they are now.
As for my sister inlaw she has been so abusive with her words and actions for so long now that the last comment that was made was the last. I will never speak to her again. She has said some awful things to me but this was the worst. There are some people that are just better to stay far away from even if u have to be around them because of family. I dont have to talk to her anymore nor will I. If this seems very long winded or makes little sense im sorry i havent slept much and im drained.
