This was an emotionally tolling video to make. On top of it, I hate my voice being recorded, hate the sound of my voice...but I for some odd reason felt using my voice would have a better impact than text.

As some of you may know, I worked at a local animal shelter for 4 months over 2 years ago. There is a lot that went on there that I didn't openly discuss because it was difficult. Mostly because I was chosen to assist in euthanasia. And that is a hard thing to talk about. Its make even harder by the stigma many people have of it, assuming that those who euthanize animals "enjoy" it, because "anyone who loves animals wouldn't do it". Another comment made is "You are playing God"...No, when you have to euthanize animals you are FORCED to play God. Forced by irrespondsible dog owners and breeders. So most the time, I didn't discuss it. I saw the recent Oprah show about puppy mills and couldn't watch it anymore. I saw a puppy mill operation, I didn't need to see it again. But my mother kept giving me play by play and mentioned euthanasia and it kinda brought it all back to me. And last night, I felt I need to tell people about it. It was both difficult and therapeutic. But I feel necessary.
