Back at the beginning of December my I bumped into my friend Jackie with her pups and while I was having the usual cuddle with her lovely Deerhound boy Ishmael I noticed that his lymph glands in his throat were enlarged....he had just recovered from a bout of colitis so it was put down to that, two weeks later having not seen her in the meantime I met Peter (Peppersdad) who informed me that the darling boy had been diagnosed with lymphoma and given 4 to 6 weeks, sadly he only lasted two weeks and left for the bridge on Sunday 21st :( .

My angel Sadi knew Ishmael from when he was a pup, and Johnny also became firm friends with the big wookie....they dug a huge hole together back in the summer :lol

 

My pockets and treat bags were never safe from the very tall boy and I will miss him. I know his Mum and Dad are heartbroken and his "siblings" Florence and Seql miss him too.

 

Run free you big hairy loony....my pockets will never be the same.

I'm so sorry for your and your friends' loss. It sounds like Ishmael was a special boy indeed, and knew all the best people and pups.

 

Godspeed, handsome.

When friends lose dogs, we grieve twice -- first for the death of the beautiful animal itself, and then for our friends' sorrow.

How sad. Rest in peace, beautiful Ishmael, and condolences to all who knew and loved him.

 

I've always loved deerhounds. A friend of mine owned one years ago when I got my first greyhound and she was such a character.
