Euthanasia for dogs is a very difficult decision that many of us have had to face. It's heartbreaking to see your best friend suffer and gut-wrenching to know that his fate is in your hands. Jason Wood's best friend, a 3-legged dog named Oden, had been struggling with cancer. After a long fight, Jason made the decision to have Oden put down to spare him any more pain. This 6-minute documentary looks at Oden's last few minutes and is narrated by Jason's reflections on how Oden changed his life. It's a touching story that captures the strength of the human-dog bond beautifully. Warning: the video shows Oden receiving the injection, so be prepared. (If you're a sap like me, have tissues ready.)
