Lazer 3/16/06-2/21/14


Recommended Posts

So many of you have already posted in the H&M thread - Thank you for your kind words of support!!

There is so much more to Lazers story that I really wanted to put it all down - well some of it anyway :)


The first time Lazer came to our home was as a Amber Alert rescue - he has escaped his home and was on the run for 3 days. He was so skittish and untrusting that he just wouldn't let himself be helped.

DH and I FOUND HIM 2 BLOCKS from our house. We saved him from getting onto a very busy road that led to the freeway. This was miracle #1. Skinny, scared and hungry we fed him and called his mom who was incredibly thankful we found him. and we just couldn't believe his name was LAZER --


The second time Lazer came to our home, I was asked to help place him and Spirit due to a serious illness in the family. I said sure I'll help, when do you need to place them out? Today! At the time I had 3 of my own, was fostering another greyhound then Spirit and Lazer walked into our lives. LAZER--can't believe his name!


From that moment, I knew they would stay with us forever! Lazer was sick from the start. Every Auto-immune thing you could think of was happening to him. And we found out about his terrible teeth/gums..the bacteria that would ravage his body.. the first month was all about Vet apts, dentals and FOOD! he was so skinny -- but soo sweet and we could see his gentle soul was opening to us.


So Lazer came to us --- we didn't name him, we didn't pick him. The FREAKY think is DH and I have our own business: Laser Compliance ~ We have our own mascot!!! and obviously we were picked for a reason........... little did we know he picked us - we learned from each other and were blessed with his wisdom


In Aug. 2011 Lazer collapsed - many of you know the story from here on,,,, This was Miracle #2. he died in my driveway and I revived him - CANINE CPR YOUTUBE ---- WATCH IT you can save your dogs life!!!

at this point we started his life over and I counted, first the hours, then the days and weeks,,, till eventually I thought: He can do this,, we can keep him alive. So many people helped us and him - we didn't do it alone,, and couldn't have made it without our friends and family. He was the miracle boy for everyone.

Last Feb. came the initial CHF diagnosis --- I honestly just put it out of my mind. He still had Clots in his heart and other issues that were my focus ---- until Last Aug when the ultra sound showed a huge difference in his heart and the real threat of CHF came front and center --- they said 6-8 months life expectancy


we made it 7 months. this after beating all odds for survival in 2011-- and it wasn't right to ask for a third miracle ---

This was the notification i sent to my friends and family --- i think it is a fitting end to this story:


Lazer lived longer than anyone expected him too.

He was always Happy, He NEVER COMPLAINED, he was ultimately trusting!
Friday morning we let him go to heaven.
I didn't have the right to ask him to stay longer than I already had -- He gave 2 1/2 years of extra life, love and happiness - that was more than anyone expected.
Our lives are better for having him with us and we are blessed that he chose to stay in this world with us -- for the time he could give us. He has better places to go -- and the last gift we could give him was the permission to go.
our lives will never be the same
Forever in our hearts,,,
my beautiful brindle boy - Lazer




Thank you for letting me tell a little back history

we are privileged to have had Lazer in our lives and we will miss him every day!

I am so sorry that it was time for Lazer to leave. There are those things that are just meant to be and clearly Lazer was meant to be with you.

:f_red:f_red:f_red:f_red:weep My heart is breaking for you. :grouphug The story of you and Lazer is a miracle story and always will be. Such incredible love. Such a demonstation of the power of love! My heart just sank when I saw this today- I was so hoping for another miracle. Lazar will always be special though. He will never be forgotten and I know he will always be present not only in the heart of those who loved him and that he loved, but his presence will always be here on GT too where we were privaleged to be able to share in his remarkable story and to come to know such an incredible hound. I am so sorry. What an incredible dog. You 'da man Lazer! We love you and always will. Thank you so much for everything Lazer! Enjoy your new found health-run fast and far and happy!

I'm so sorry for your loss and what you're feeling right now, but so I applaud you for having the courage to let him go. That is such a hard decision to make. I just made it recently with one of my babies and I know you must miss him so much right now. Virtual hugs being sent your way. What a loved creature he was!

Lazer was beyond special. His updates pulled each and every one of us into his life and we all cheered him on. You gave him a life like no other and he is and always will be the miracle boy.

..................and in the midst of all that, you helped so many others (including me and my Angel Suze) by introducing us to essential oils and other alternative treatments. You held our hands, provided encouragement, laughed and cried with us. How prophetic; on Thursday you sent this to me: "dogs do not fear or anticipate death -

TLC is sometimes the best medicine".


Beautiful tribute for an amazing, loving boy who was an inspiration to so many. Godspeed, Lazer. I'll bet you'll get that bunny now.
