‘He was on lots of painkillers and it wasn’t fair to watch him suffer anymore, it would have been selfish of us to let him carry on in that state. 

‘He had never eaten a McDs [McDonald’s] or choc before, the past few months he’s only been able to have dry food so we thought we’d let him have all the nice things.’

Ellie added that deciding to put him down was the ‘hardest decision of their lives but the kindest thing to do’.
