She was fine this morning, came home and she was in fairly obvious pain. A few hours later at the e-vet it becomes obvious that it's not going to get better. Love you Betty Joan. First grownup dog, first greyhound, you were the best! Such a good ambassador and the neighborhood and farmers markets are going to miss you! And all your neighbors too! The neighborhood kitties won't miss you but everyone else will. Especially me babe.

 

Even though our obscenely warm winter here in The West may mean fires and famine come summer, I'm glad it gave you many many wonderful chances to lay out in the sun. Like just this past Saturday. Was that not just about perfect?

After all of tonight's pain, I'm glad your final moments brought you back to your wonderful relaxed and sleeping form, but I'll miss having that form curled up tight next to me in bed.

The infamous sit, from the first day we met:

And a flash back to when we chose to adopt each other:

"It is also to be noted of every species, that the handsomest of each move best ... and beasts of the most elegant form, always excel in speed; of this, the horse and greyhound are beautiful examples."----Wiliam Hogarth, The Analysis of Beauty, 1753.
