Sequoia's First Gotcha Day

This is a hard one to write. I've been putting it off 'cause it's so painful.

 

I adopted Sequoia last June and she died December 8th, three weeks after her 6th birthday. We had an amazing six months together. I met her breeders, who were very happy to see her again. We camped out, visited the coast, met a whole bunch of cool greys and their people, became active in GH adoptions, and much more. She impressed everyone with her beauty and personality.

 

She was my first Greyhound and I loved her (and love her) dearly. I still miss her deeply at times. I'm crying as I write this.

 

Please keep her -- and me -- in your thoughts this week. Thank you.

 

~ Marcella (and current greyhound Selena, who never knew her "sister")

I'm so sorry for the loss of your precious Sequoia. Sending warm thoughts that you will find comfort in the love you shared with her and the love you will continue to feel for her.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. Having had her only six months, I've been surprised at the intensity of my grief. She was quite a special dog, at least to me.

 

You are all a comfort, as is the existence of a place to share my sadness. Thank you for posting, as well as to those who didn't post but sent their energy through the ether.

I remember meeting you and Sequoia at the picnic. She was a beautiful lady and the world is poorer for having lost her so soon. Run free sweet Sequoia.

Okay, now you're making me cry again. I'm so glad you got to meet Sequoia, Ruth, and that we got to meet you. Perhaps you'll get to meet my Selena at the Hound Wash, and I'll get to spend some time with your hounds.

My deepest sympathy. I lost a beautiful brood only having had her 11 weeks so I know about the short time together. I too grieved like I had for 11 years. It does get better in time & you will adopt again I'm sure.

Our time with our pups is never long enough - but to have that depth of feeling after six months is only a tribute to what a special dog she was. I'm so sorry for your loss! :cry1
