Callie (Oneco Meredith) - 7/14/06-7/27/19

Recommended Posts

Our hearts are broken to say goodbye to our beautiful Callie.  At the GAS kennel her nickname was "Merry", the perfect description for this lovely girl.  She was outgoing, loved people and seemed to be without a care in the world, as long as she was with her people.

Callie had the sweetest personality.  She was content, happy, never demanding and always quietly moving through life. Callie was always ready for a walk or ride and loved to greet people at the door.   Callie could have her silly moments.  She had a spot under our lilac bush where she routinely would dig a hole.  Tucked into "her spot" she would look very pleased with herself.

We have been so fortunate that Callie has been healthy during the almost 10 years she has been with us.  Except for treating her daily with eye drops for Pannus, she has avoided many of the illnesses our other greyhounds have experienced.   It was only in June of this year that she experienced Vestibular Disease.  She was able to recover nicely in a few days and gradually could resume her morning walks.

I really enjoyed our walks together as it was just the two of us in the early morning listening to the birds and the start of a new day.  I loved the way she would almost dance with excitement as we began walking.  She turned 13 in July and was as perky as ever.

On July 23, Callie experienced another Vestibular event.  I rushed her to the e-vet where it became clear that she might have had a stroke.  She was transferred to a Vet. hospital with a neurologist, but the outlook was grim.  They sent her home hoping there would be improvement in a familiar surrounding.  She had a peaceful night and seemed content to be home.  The next morning she had another stroke and it was clear we had to let her go.

Callie, my sweet girl, I will miss your quite, gentle presence every day.  When I take my walk I will think of the lovely moments we had together.  Thank you for coming into my life and bringing so much joy to our house.  You will be in my heart forever.

Godspeed Merry Callie.

M, I am so sorry. These are the good times you will remember, the special moments you shared together, that will help you as a new normal settles in. I never knew Callie's racing - Oneco Meredith - that is so pretty and so fitting for your beautiful girl. 13 is a wonderful, remarkable age! And to have been so healthy right up until it was time for Callie to receive her wings. My heart is with you and your family. Callie knew how very much she was, and is, loved. :grouphug

Godspeed dear Callie. I suspect your day lily will bloom especially spectacular.

Jan, thank you for the comforting words.  Callie's daylily has been blooming as it never has before.  Each day there are more flowers that open that form almost a bouquet shape.  They are bright and lovely just as she was.

 

I want to thank everyone for the kind words for Callie.  She was a real sweetheart!

I am so sorry. My deepest sympathy. She will be with you always. Love never dies.

For love is as strong as death,
Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor can the floods drown it.

I am so, so sorry.  

Her spirit has undoubtedly found a lilac bush at the Bridge that needed a special hound to wait in just that spot.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.
