Rest in Peace Merlin.

    This is my first time ever losing a family/flock member. And it hit me really hard when I found my Mom's puppy eating Merlin when he was still alive. HIs whole chest was gone, so I ran back and grabbed my gun and then I shot him. That was most hardest thing I have ever done. I miss him SO much!!![​IMG]

    Here is a video and some pictures of Merlin.

    So sorry you and Merlin were vary close by the looks of the video. You did the right thing. I know that at this moment Merlin is looking down on you from heaven and keeping you safe.

    I am so sorry about Merlin. You can tell a lot that your first instinct was to end Merlin's suffering, and as hard as that was, you did right by him. You are very brave and strong and Merlin was lucky to have you in his life.
