Mork 09/27/1999 - 02/10/2014

In the end, it wasn't the weak hind end that took him, it was a suspected cancer in the elbow joint of his right leg. Sunday night, he was playing outside in the rain. Monday at 1:00, we were faced with the awful decision to set him free from his pain.

 

There are so many things I could say about this wonderful old man. We had quite a journey in our 9 and a half years together. But since the tears are far from gone, I just want to add something that was sent to me yesterday.

 

Native American Prayer

 

I give you this one thought to keep - I am with you still - I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the softest stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone - I am with you still - in each new dawn.

Carol, I gasped when I saw this. I always hoped that Mork would stay with you forever. I really liked him, and you and Ryan must be heartbroken. I'm so very sorry :grouphug

 

ETA: I'm actually crying. I never cry.

I'm so sorry...such a distinguished gentleman...just like my Sutra. They have a special way of getting to us deeper than the others - it's unexplainable but it happens.

 

So sorry he had to go :grouphug

I am so very sorry. I remember you writing about Mork in your posts and always thought his as the gentleman Greyhound. I am glad you had the time you did with him, it's just never enough.

I, too, gasped when I saw Mork's name here. :grouphug I love the pic of him riding in the car, such a happy, carefree face. The poem is beautiful and I hope it brings you comfort as you remember your boy and all the love you shared over the years. I am so very sorry for your loss. :grouphug

Our original 3-pack is together again. I'm sure the girls are already tormenting him.

 

Thank you for all the kind posts. Robin, we really thought he would always be here too...we were at least certain we would be celebrating his 15th birthday this year.
