When is it time to call it a day?

I’ve been asked to post this question on the forum so here it is.
I know our focus is on maintaining quality of life for as long as possible but there will come a time when quality of life is just not acceptable and we have to make a decision to put our friends out of pain.  How do we know when that time is?  It’s something I am struggling with at the moment that wasn’t talked about at the owners workshop.  When Gillie was diagnosed I had an idea of what I considered acceptable quality of life for him – we have now gone past that.  How do we know?  What are we looking for?

Thanks Kathryn.  I guess I’m finding it tough because he has extremes.  When he gets up he looks really painful but then the other 90% of the time he is jolly and happy, playing etc.  I’m less worried about what to do when the time comes and more worried about knowing when the right time is.
