Lilah (juggernaut Lady)

My sweet Lilah girl went to the bridge one year ago today. I plan on spending a part of the day planting flowers in her little memorial garden. My heart still aches - she was my perfect girl and I miss her terribly. I thought I would repost her little memorial tribute I wrote for her last year:


My dear, sweet, best little girl crossed to the Bridge on Thursday morning, 6/14/07. She lived 2 months post Osteosarcoma diagnosis. She had a very good day on Wednesday. She ran in the year and rolled in the grass, she played with her stuffies and smiled a good bit. About 8:00 pm Wednesday she began to go downhill very quickley. We slept on the floor with her, giving her what comfort we could. The next morning, we helped her cross to the Bridge. She is finally pain free, but she leaves a tremendous hole in our hearts and lives.


We adopted Lilah in May of 2000. She picked us out - she ran up to DH and gave him a big kiss on the lips. We later learned that she was very selective in the kisses she gave out, and that she was working very hard to get us to notice her. Thank doG she did, because she was the absolute perfect dog for us. People always asked me if we rescued her and that may have been, but truthfully, she resucued us right back.


Lilah was wonderful with children and elderly, she worked as a therapy dog for 3 years. She very quietly spread the Lilah-love and brought smiles to the hearts of many. In the last year, she concentrated on being a therapy dog to my parents, spending her days at their home while I went to work and wrapping them around her paw.


Lilah was about the fuzziest greyhound in the world. We always joked that she was crossed with a husky. She loved the snow and would go swimming in the ocean in the winter.


She made me laugh and smile everyday. She was my first greyhound and I feel so grateful for the 7 years we got to spend with her. Words can't express how much I love her.


So goodbye my Doodlebug, my Noodle, my Lala, my Princess Pooh Bear. I love you and miss you and hope to see you again. In the meantime, find a comfy cloud and watch over us. You are our angel now.

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.

It is hard to believe a whole year has passed. No matter how long they stay, it seems, they never stay long enough. She remains in your heart.
