Flower - Schasta Flowers 6/18/06-6/15/17

We are so very heartbroken over the loss of Flower, after a week long battle and many tears, Flower crossed over on June 15th around 12:15. I posted in Health and Medical the day before that she had a bleeding mass in her abdomen, Splenic that turned out to be Hemangiosarcoma, we opted to operate -remove the Spleen and buy her some time, she barely made it through surgery/ her body was so weakened by the blood loss, 1400 ml of blood removed from abdomen, 2 transfusions, heart erythmia. She fluctuated between being able to barely get up to collapse, we brought her home for 2 days and she declined, we spent over $10,000 hoping to give her some quality of time as her numbers were stable and she was walking before procedure....

She passed peacefully in a beautiful surrounding with me and my husband there, I was able to do Reiki on her one last time and she slept, she watched us with her soulful eyes, she was wrapped in love and blankets.

We adopted Flower May 2013, a year after we lost Sara to Hemangiosarcoma. She was returned to WAG in CT by her family, they were having a baby and did not want her anymore. She was afraid of men, children, new people yet she came here and looked into my face and loved me instantly, she liked Max and he was fine with her. She even liked the cat! She was the easiest going Grey girl, sweet, submissive, good on leash and loved riding in the van, she and Max walked perfect together and ran around the back like they always knew each other. She was almost 7 when we got her and we only had her for 4 years, not enough time ever!! She trusted and loved my husband and she became his girl, always waiting for the night walk with him and weekend adventures at Mine Falls in Nashua. It was my soul that connected with her over these 4 years, she eased the pain of the loss of Sara and rode all over the place with me in the van, she greeted my Reiki clients this past year and comforted many who came here looking for peace. She helped us through the devastating decline and loss of Max, my 1st Grey on 12/3/15 and welcomed Simon, brother from a different mother, Chi/italian Grey mix last fathers day. Her 11th birthday is tomorrow and I cannot believe she is not here in body to celebrate it. It is the 1st time in 13 years that we are without a Greyhound in our home. All the pillows are put away, coats and jammies washed and stored, it is so very empty :brokenheart:brokenheart:brokenheart :brokenheart :brokenheart

How sad your Flower celebrated her 11th birthday at the bridge with your bridge kids & not with you & your husband.

From reading your lovely tribute, it's clear that Flower was precisely where she was meant to be. I'm so sorry you didn't have more time with your precious lady.
