Cooper Is Gone

I posted about 2 months ago, as Cooper was showing signs of LS. A course of steroids helped for a few weeks, but he relapsed about 2 weeks ago. He was at doggie daycare yesterday (DH is out of the country and Cooper was on steroids again so needed to be looked after). He went lame and was in pain; I left work and took him to the e-vet upstairs, where he was x-rayed. His leg had broken and he had a tumor. There was no question about what I had to do.


Osteo is horrible. Yesterday was horrible. I am heartbroken. Cooper was our first grey. He changed our lives with his intelligence, his spirit, his spunk, and his cleverness. I miss the sound of those flapping ears.

I am so sorry about Cooper's death.


It is indeed amazing how this 'just animals' change us and our lives forever.


He will live on in your hearts.


One day we will all be reunited at The Bridge!

I am so, so sorry for your loss of Cooper. Osteo is horrible. I lost my Hammer to it in 2005.... The pain was so intense for him too... I let him go in peace... just know that right now Cooper is running pain free at the Bridge with all the other greys. There is no cancer!!!! You will see Cooper again. Just like you, Hammer was my first too... He taught me the love of a grey and each one I adopted after him have been a tribute to his life.... I promise you that the pain will ease over time. It never, ever gets better, but it does ease. I chose to remember every moment of Hammer's happy, pain-free life and not the cancer-filled ones.... We owe them that... our memories should be about the joy they brought us... about the love they taught us... and how we can love again...


You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.... :f_red


Run free sweet Cooper... Run now like the wind.... :gh_run
