My Friend Has Lost Patch


Recommended Posts

My lovely friend Erin has lost her boy Patch.

I have come to my friends at Greytalk to maybe put something together for Erin that I I can print and send to her to help her in the battle she has ahead.

Erin is a beautiful Lady who has compassion for people and dogs alike. This amazing Lady Managed to carry and give birth to her daughter Poppy, against all odds. She has an amazing hubby, and parents who have adopted a GSP and Ivan an ex racing grey.

Patch is one of three loved dogs. He is of greyhound derivation. (Think that's how it's spelt)

Erin had a bad car accident on the way to the Vet with Patch. A 4 wheel drive collided with another vehicle and smashed into Erin's car head on. Her Baby and Patch were okay, but Erin broke both her wrists and ankles. One of her ankles was a compound fracture. The car was a write off.

Looks like she may lose the use of her foot. Her recovery will be long. Hospital until April. She will lose her Job. Erin is a Nurse. A very good, kind and compassionate Nurse. She is young.

Patch was taken back to the Vet by her Dad. He was suffering severe weight loss and no appetite.

Patch had surgery to his intestines (nappy liner he had stolen from the bin). He passed away post surgery. I just found out tonight. I was devastated.

Erin loves her Dogs like we do. She is stuck in Hospital grieving for Patch and blaming herself for his demise. No escape from the Demons.


If you could contribute something to help ease her pain it would be fantastic.


Also! Can I print so I can Mail to Erin?

Rest well Patch.

So sorry to hear this. Between her injuries the loss of her job and the loss of Patch , it is a lot for one person to handle. I know her heart hurts. For whatever reason it was his time to leave this earth.

I hope your friend has a uneventful recovery and feels better soon.

God bless Patch and Erin!

I have just been through a hole of a time Erin, so I know a little bit (not to your extent) how youre feeling and I know how incredibly tough it is and how down it makes you.

I wish you a speedy recovery. Always remember what a good owner you were to patch. In terms of patch dont cry becomes its over, smile because it happened. One day you will be healed and feel better and stronger and you will be that great Nurse again like you deserve to be. Keep your family and friends close to you, they will help you a lot. Xxx

Lisa, Eddie and Milo 💕 🐶 🐾

{{{Erin}}} Dogs live in the moment. You and Patch had the best moments together, please try to focus on those. You gave him the best possible life a dog mom ever could have. Our thoughts are with you now as you mend. Remember, you "done good" for your boy. :grouphug
