Sad Dog Picture of the Day

"A woman surnamed Han takes care of her companion dog Aji, who is suffering from bone marrow tumors, as they rest on her bed in Paju, Gyeonggi Province, Nov. 1," reads the caption to the above photo, taken from an article calling attention to the fact that "80 thousand out of an estimated two million companion animals in South Korea were reportedly abandoned in 2009" — Life-long companion.

"Although her veterinarian has recommended euthanasia," the article informs us, "Han says she does not believe her dog is ready to die, as Aji has eaten food regularly despite the pain." Euthanasia is, of course, a moral option when it comes to brutes (but not us), but I am willing to let Aji's companion, whose knows her best, make this decision.

The poor pooch! =( But I agree that Aji's human companion knows best about what to do in this case.
