Our Sweet Little Girl, Amy

December 16, 1998 – August 6, 2008


Found as a stray and bounced from her first “home” she came to us as a 3 week foster. At the time we had 3 Greys of our own and our daughter who was in college had 2 so a lot of the time we had 5 so we weren’t “looking to chip.” But we all know what love does to us and we fell hard for this sweet little girl with the soulful eyes. So on August 7, 2003 she became ours. Tomorrow would have been her 5th Gotcha Day --- the cake was going to be so cute and I’d had her presents for a few weeks --- a huge pillow in the shape of a crown that has “Princess” on it and 3 new stuffies. It saddens me even more that she didn’t get to enjoy her special day.


Most of you know that Amy started having problems yesterday around noon and went immediately to the vet and was started on 3 medications to try to stop or at least relieve the symptoms until additional blood work could get back from Arizona. The meds did not help and by 6:30 last night she had lost feeling in her hind end and was not able to urinate. She was in a high state of panic and would check her back-side often. She was absolutely pitiful. After a rough and sleepless night, we were at the vets by 7:45 this morning and she agreed Amy’s condition had deteriorated at an alarming speed. She conferred with a neurologist and we had the choice to try to get her to the neurologist (1 ½ - 2 hr. trip) for a test that may or may not give us any answers and the vet even said Amy may not make the trip. At that point we decided to say goodbye.


Barry and I are shocked that this could happen so soon after losing our boy. It is so true that life is not fair. Our hearts are breaking and we know our home and lives are forever changed. Amy will always be in our hearts and she definitely took a piece of our hearts with her. She and Turbo are playing at the Bridge together. Both are running pain free and happy.


I want to thank each of you that prayed for Amy and sent kind and encouraging messages in hopes of a recovery. Each message was cherished and appreciated. Hug those hounds, we never know what tomorrow may bring.

As much as we resist the idea of ever having to say goodbye to our hounds, we know that it is inevitable. More so when we least expect it. There is no time to allow our hearts to think about it. As time moves on, we know that the pain will change. Change to the warm feelings of soft memories that fill your heart. We hope that you and your family find peace in the memory of Amy and the joy she brought you. We share your sadness on the loss of your sweet girl.
