  1. I'm so sorry. I will miss his photoshop bombs. They always made me crack up!


    ... and no it's not too soon. Especially if he was your only dog, and even if he was not. Social will be honored by you giving another greyhound a home.

  2. I agree with Robin's vet's assessment of pain. I've faced this twice now with 2 greyhounds and took the day early philosophy. I couldn't live with the consequences of the inevitable traumatic event occurring. Good luck with your decision. I am terribly sorry you have to make it.

    btw my husband couldn't make that decision either and I knew and understood that, but I know it can make things harder for you.

  3. Diane I'm so sorry to read this. Jen just lost her Dottie today and I was thinking she was the last of our first generation greyhounds. Matty was such a sweet soul. I know how dearly you will miss him. RIP Wink and Finn's brother by another mother.

  4. Oh Carol and Ryan, just seeing this. He was such a lovable guy. I'm so sorry.

    I tried to find a good pic of him from ages ago when we met up in Lynnfield. He was such an unassuming guy it was hard to find him in any of the pictures. LOL

    It's hard to believe that Jen's Dottie is the only grey left from the group that day. Let's see if I can remember them all... Finn, Wink, Suzie, Jitterbug, Patsy Fagan, Dottie, Aggie, Jazz, Mattie and Mork

    RIP Mork you were so loved by everyone who knew you.



  5. That's what my vet had discussed with me- that she was worried about a systemic injection of steroids since if there was a bad reaction, there's no way to quickly rid the body of the steroids.


    We had that exact same discussion with our vet. Since Wink had been on steroids previously with no ill effects she was willing to try it. She had never done it before. She took the information I had given her from Dr Stack, did a little more research for herself then did the injections. Unfortunately there were no positive changes, but it was worth the try.

  6. Peet and Jack I'm so sorry for the loss of your sweet Tex. Sorry for the late response, but we are out of state and I just took a minute to check in on GT.

    It's so hard to say goodbye. My thoughts are with you.

  7. I've seen changes in my dogs after each passing of a pack mate. With the passing of Wink last week, Birdie has become hugely energetic doing the crazy zoomies she did as a 3 year old in the house. She is demanding "out" times more frequently and digging huge holes and running laps in our big yard. She was rooing along to a youtube the other day. (she is not much of a rooer)

    I wonder if she was just keeping it all on the down low while Wink was so fragile. They are such sensitive dogs.

    We said good by to sweet Winkie this morning at home. (Thank you Dr Sarah Curry All Creatures Mobile Vet for giving us the opportunity to say goodby in such a gentle and stress free manner) She lost her "sparkle" last week and I knew it was time to let her go. She would have stayed, my devoted companion, but I couldn't let her. She never had a bad day and I promised her she wouldn't ever.

    Run free sweet girl, our heart dog. Give Finn a big sloppy greeting for me. You are already so missed.
