A Very Special Boy

Recommended Posts

I don't usually post here when a former foster dog dies, but Smitty was such a special soul. He was just 6 years old and his owner, Julie, knew something was wrong even though he was eating, drinking, playing, etc...a mom's sixth sense, I guess. The Vet found an enlarged spleen, which led to exploratiory surgery, which found the tumors. :( Smitty passed peacefully while under anesthesia.

 

Many of you will remember Smitty as the "main suspect" in the Pillow Murder thread. He was a wonderful boy in so many ways, from his uncanny ability to become a tiny lap dog to his endearing habit of sleeping with his paws behind his ears. I guess I just want to commemorate him somehow. You were loved, Smitty.

Elizabeth, I am so sorry. Please pass my heartfelt condolences on to his mom. Losing one so young and so unexpectedly is such a hard thing to experience :grouphug

:( I am so sorry. My sympathy and prayers. Run free sweet boy...I know that there are many pillows to be murdered at the Bridge...Angel Sophia told me so and she loved to murder pillows so I know that she will share some of those pillows with you. Run free and forever young...you are loved and missed. :grouphug:f_red

I remember our great friend Smitty :wub:

 

Night night little one. Go find Del. He loved pillows. He didn't murder his, he just lay with his head on it but he won't mind if you murder one of his collection. Tell him I said it was OK :)

Deerhounds Darcy, Duffy, Grace & Wellington, Mutts Sprout & Buddy, Lurchers Ned & Jake plus Ella the Westie + cats. Remembering Del, Jessie, Maddison, Flo, Sally, Stanley, Wallace, Radar, Mokka, Oki cat, Tetley, Poppy & Striker.

What a sweet face. I am so sorry. :candle

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.

Seeing that adorable picture from the Pillow killer thread made me want to read it again and enjoy Smitty's adventure again. But it's no longer available. I wonder if there a way to retrieve old posts? In honour of Smitty, I'd love to see it again...

My boys, together again...
