He was the friendliest greyhound. When he spied someone, his eyes lit up and the tail started wagging. He never met a person that he didn't like and if I handed someone his leash he'd trot along with them as if they were best friends. He was a cuddler, a kisser, a lovey, a 85+pound lap dog. I miss his sweet face, stuffy in mouth, greeting me when I got home.I miss his paw swiping at me when I've been on the computer too long. I just miss him so much. His illness was so sudden so unexpected. How could he have cancer ? He wasn't sick, he had a physical in March, he was in good health. It started with swollen glands a few weeks ago. In a few days his glands were huge and his mouth was swollen. It was cancer and the lymphoma spread so quickly, without Prednisone, he would be gone in a few days. The Prednisone bought us some time for the Gold Bug farewell tour. We enjoyed every minute together. We went to his favorite places and said goodbye to all his friends. He got to chase bunnies and run freely and do all the things he enjoyed. we watched all his best races together and celebrated his life ,and when the meds didn't control the swelling and it became too difficult to breath, we were all there to help him to the bridge. I miss you big guy..... Gold Bug was only 7 in May, and he died so young but I'm grateful for our time together. I have so many cherished memories. I know that he had the best of everything, at the farm and at Raynham. everyone took such good care of him. I could tell you so many wonderful stories about Gold Bug and his life, instead take a look at his photo album. These pictures tell his story, 5 pictures in the album were taken on the farewell tour. .....I love you Gold Bug , I know you'll be waiting at the bridge for me with a stuffy in your mouth :heart

Gold Bug was a "Best Boy" and a golden one at that. He had a wonderful life with you and your loving family albeit too short before being called to the bridge. We will remember him thru your posts and pictures. Godspeed big guy and now you will become part of our golden sunrise each morning. Sam

I'm sorry. I loved seeing his pics -- it's not hard to understand how sad you must be and how much you must miss him.

I am so very sorry. Heaven must have needed another Angel, and the night sky is certainly brighter with his star shining down brightly on you. :grouphug:f_white
