Lukas, the beloved companion, and older brother to my greyhound, Asher, has passed away. He went strong until the last day, when he collapsed. Not knowing what was wrong with him, we did emergency surgery, only to find a tumor in his spleen the size of a tangerine. The doctor was hopeful; however, further exploration found that his liver was completely riddled with cancer as well. He came out of surgery, at 9pm and I sat with him for several hours as he recovered. The doctor told me that he had 1-2 months - tops. I asked my little boy what he wanted, and told him that if it was his time to go, that was okay. With that, he looked at me, smiled, stretched out his neck and let out his last breath. 14 years, almost to the day after the first time I held him. My grey still lays with his head in his brothers little bed...

I am so very sorry for your loss.

Take comfort in the fact that you were with him and got to say goodbye.

I'm sure that was all he was waiting for. :brokenheart:f_white

Aww... That's a sweet-sad story. How wonderful that you had all those years together, and that he was strong right up to his last day.

Wishing you peace and comfort, as you work through your grief...

Its very hard to lose a special boy. They are a part of your life, heart and soul. I firmly believe that those we have loved and those who have loved us are waiting when our time comes to cross the bridge. Our heart cries with yours :brokenheart
