    I'm taking Grace in today to be humanely euthanized. She's turned into skin and bones, refuses to eat and can hardly hang on to tree branches. She's at least 10 years old and just withering away. I want her to pass on instead of just starving to death. I know the end is near, but I can't watch her waste away any longer. She's the first frog I owned. I'll miss her.

    :(

    You are doing a very good thing for your little frog Grace.

    I didn't know they could live so long! Shows how well you have cared for her. She has been a lucky girl.

    Grace was a Whites Tree frog. She's also my avatar.

    On a side note, the vet praised me for having a WTF live so long. She said she has never had one that old at her practice before. She truly had a great life.

    Oh, Liz! I am so sorry about Grace :( You take such loving care of all your critters that I know why she lived so long -- and she had a happy life with you.

    I'm very sorry it came down to having to make that decision - it is one of the most unselfish and painful things we have to do when we take in pets that quickly turn into family members!

    She had a great life and I know you will miss her greatly... sending HUGS to you!
