When I got home from work today, Dennis had just let Striper out in the yard. I went out to check on him, I found that he had fallen and couldn't get up. I tried to help him, but he had lost all control of his back legs.

 

We loaded him in the van and took him to the emergency vet. By the time we got there, he couldn't really control his front legs, either, and during this entire ordeal, he was sort of unaware. I had brought along liver treats, poor fella took one in his mouth, but couldn't figure out how to eat it. :(( The vet examined him and from his symptoms, was almost certain that Striper had a brain tumor. We released him from the old body that he could no longer contol. He left peacefully with his head cradled in my lap.

 

Striper was our first Greyhound, and was adopted a little over 6 years ago. He was always happy, alway full of energy, and alway looking for trouble, and FOOD! This sweet sweet boy lived life to the fullest every day. He is the reason that I became hooked on Greyhounds, and has added more joy to my life that I would have imagined possible.

I am so sorry for your loss of Striper. It's always hard to say goodbye to a beloved friend. I know how hard that final act of love is. May your memories bring peace to your aching heart.

 

Run free, sweet Striper.
