Thanks, Nancy, for talking so openly and honestly about such a sensitive issue. Although I've not been put in the position of having to consider surrending my dogs for any reason at all, I can imagine how painful it must be for the families who have absolutely no other choice. Still, no matter how painful it is for the humans, how much more painful it must be for the dogs! No matter how many words dogs are capable of learning (between 165 and 250, according to recent studies), they will never be able understand why they are being surrendered.
