Vicky (nitro Victoria)

It was with a very heavy heart that I said goodbye to sweet Vicky this afternoon. She was my first greyhound, and a wonderful companion for these past 10 years. She was diagnosed with osteo two weeks ago, and due to her age and other health problems I opted to make her comfortable and spoil her rotten for however long we had left together. Sadly, this turned out to only be two weeks as she slipped and fell this afternoon, breaking her bad leg and leaving me with no other option than to end her pain forever. She was so brave, and didn't even cry with what must have been horrible pain from the broken leg - I can only think the pain from the cancer was probably much worse than I realized.

 

This is Vicky having a nap a few months ago -

And this is her and her brother Jake and sister Casey enjoying the fine NC sun in our backyard -

Two weeks was definitely not long enough to say goodbye - take care Miss Vicky.

 

I will miss you so much.. :weep

I am so sorry for your loss. Take comfort in knowing that you made her happy. I am sure that she is happy knowing that she did the same for you.

Thanks for the kind words.

 

I'd also like to take a moment and thank Dr. Bailey of Peak Plaza Animal Hospital in Apex, NC for having the compassion to say they'd send the bill along to me in a week or so. Every other time I've had to make this sad decision about a pet, I've had to pay in advance (or worse yet, stand crying in the waiting room trying to see well enough to write out a check). It's a small kindness (and no doubt some risk to the vet) but it really meant a lot to me.
