Today would of been Foxy Promise's first gotcha day and not knowing exactly when he was born in June due to weird Canadian Tattooing, I was going to celebrate his birthday on June 1st which isn't too far away, he would of been 8. I just wanted to say Happy Birthday and Gotcha Day to my goofy-grey-faced man and tell him I miss him so much. I wish our time wasn't so short and thinking about you still brings tears to my eyes. I miss him peeing on his legs, I miss him howling when I left the house, I miss his super lean and the fact he never left my side - I miss reaching down and scratching his head against my thigh. I'm so sad he spent more time in Foster care than he did in his forever home.


I still feel a lot of guilt and anger, I'm angry at the vets who took him in and who I felt didn't take his sickness seriously and I feel guilty for not taking him in sooner and leaving him there - he passed about 5 minutes after I left him and I know how upset he used to get when I'd leave the house. I just picture his little sick heart not being able to handle the stress of me leaving him alone. I wish I would of stayed longer with him, I was crying when I left even though they said he would be fine and that I could come get him in the morning.


I miss you so much my Foxy Promise and I'm so, so sorry - I hope he's waiting for me and I hope he can help my parent's dog Misha to the bridge later on in the week. I love you so much, Happy Birthday and Happy First Gotcha day sweety, wish you were here to celebrate it with me...

I am so sorry. Foxy is such a beautiful boy. Having lost my boy, two weeks ago, I know how you feel. I am still trying to come to grips with it. Hugs to you.

I am so Sorry, I cried when I read this and my heart goes out to you, I lost my baby 10-days after his dental and I never knew it was his last days. Know that he loved you very much and you were a very good mommy, you did not know....


Happy Birthday and Got Cha day at the Bridge, sweet baby.



Edit to add lots of hugs for mommy:

I'm so sorry, but how lucky he was to have somebody to love him as you did, even though it was for a short time!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I understand your anger & regret but hope your good memories of your beautiful boy outshine your pain. Sometimes we learn terrible lessons so we can be better in the future. I hope that I use what my dear Danny taught me to be a better Mom to Mick.

I am so sorry. :candle:grouphug

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.

:grouphug :grouphug :grouphug I was so glad when you adopted Foxy Promise! I'd been watching him on NCGL's site and wishing I could add him to my family. Please don't blame yourself for anything or try to second-guess what might have been - you loved him and gave him a good home. God bless you!
