Frankie’s Fund: Death With Dignity Through Old Dog Haven

Tweet When I said good-bye to Frankie, I had many regrets, all related to the fact that dogs are not immortal or immune from mind-destroying diseases.

What Does It Mean to Give Your Pet a Good End? Maybe Not What You Think

Tweet Frankie was not a judgmental dog. So I was sad, and little bit angry, to discover that some people have used praise of Frankie’s Fund, which is dedicated to helping homeless senior dogs get a great sendoff, to diss others’ ways of saying good-bye to their pets.
