M's I Can Fly


Recommended Posts

My old girl Mimi's "pup" Fly had to be put to sleep today. She was 11.5 yrs old. She had an inoperable tumor around her urethra that was keeping her from urinating.


Fly was a really special girl. She's got lots of pups and grandpups out there. Many are pets and many are still racing.


I kept in contact with her owner for 4 years before she retired from having pups last June. He got her from the farm she was on to me in St. Louis, and she began her retirement here at my house with her mom.


I was torn when one of the families that had adopted one of my special needs fosters decided they wanted to adopt Fly. I really wanted to keep her for myself, but after thinking about it I realized she'd have a fabulous home with them and would have a stay at home mom to spoil her rotten.


Sadly, Fly's family only got to spoil her for 4 months.


Even though it meant I only got her for a short time, I'm so glad that they decided to add her to their family. I'm also grateful her owner, Mick Massa, remembered that I wanted her and made sure to get her to me when she was done having pups.


She was a special girl and we'll all miss her.


Run Free Fly!!

What heartache for you and her people. I'm so sorry she couldn't stay longer.


Godspeed, sweet pea.

I am so sorry and devastated to learn of Fly's passing. I adopted one of her sons, Mulberry Jock (Ferris Bueller). He is such a character and I believe some of his larger-than-life personality must have come from her! Ferris was a stud dog along with his littermate Mulberry Jack (Felix). Several of Fly's daughters are broods so her lineage is ongoing. I would love to share some photos of her wonderful son who has enriched my life immeasurably. Again, I am so sorry...


Godspeed, Momma Fly, your legacy continues.

Rest in peace sweet Fly.



When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

What a sweet girl, I am so sorry. :grouphug:candle

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.

I am so very sorry to hear about Fly. What a gentle sweet angel who left paw prints on everyone's heart. Find my Howie up there and run with the wind Fly.
