Ace is gone! My big, goofy, happy, popular meeter and greeter.

He had a huge mass on his colon, about the size of a nerf football! It came out of nowhere! I'm still in shock. He ate very little for two days, and didn't poop. He was lethargic, and started pacing and panting. I was expecting a simple case of constipation. Probably colon cancer, but I didn't bother with a biopsy. He couldn't survive with it in him, and they don't put dogs on colostomy bags!


I took in Ace and CeeCee when their owner died in 2013. I lost CeeCee to osteo in December. I lost Misty to a brain tumor in November, and Micky died in his sleep in September. I was so not ready for this one!


At a meet and greet, Ace would approach people from ten feet away. He would lean on them until they pet him, and would continue to lean as they walked away. He was always smiling. He loved all people, and all dogs, but was terrified of the cat at the vet office. He enjoyed wearing silly hats and costumes, and was thrilled when people made a big deal over him. He never met a food that he didn't like, and went for several non food items when he could. If I was missing a hat, slipper, scarf, glove or book, I knew I could find it in the dog pen or stuck in the dog door. When I sat down to put on my sneakers, he would walk away with one while I was still tying the other. He watched over the property, and would let me know if one of the goats got out. He slept on my bed every night, and would put his head on my lap when I was on the couch. He took a huge chunk of my heart when he left.

This is a tough one!


Would someone please update his greyhound data page? My name is already on there. Just add that he was loved and will be missed!

When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry
