Rascal 10/1/91-5/22/04


Recommended Posts

After battling lymphoma for 15 months I had to let my beloved Rascal go. He had also battled through a bout with FCE 5 years ago that weakened his back end and took away his bowel and bladder control.


Rascal was the bravest and most dignified dog that I have ever know. He was a five year racer from Fla. He was a submissive soul when I brought him home but that changed all too quickly. Most of our time spent together was a battle to see who was actually in charge. He won.


He loved me unconditionally but he also challenged me everyday. I have a million of Rascal stories. Most of the include him eating something he shouldn't have. So many funny stories and so many people knew my boy. I took him everywhere and he was the best greyhound ambassador you could ask for. One time someone asked me if I realized that he was not a person in a dog suit and I quickly replied, "But he is better than most people...". He was more than a companion to me.


I love and miss you so.

Warmest hugs to you, and sending a kiss on the breeze to Rascal as he crosses the bridge. I know he will be looking back now and then, to make sure you are getting by.


Run free, Rascal.

I am so sorry that you had to let Rascal go. But he is running free, the wind is in his ears & the grass is soft to his paws. He has no pain, he has no sickness. There are treats hanging from all the trees. He thinks of you often & knows you did know disappoint him ever.

Find strength & peace in knowing he loved you more than anything. Dogs love us unconditionally, they don't care if we have food or water for them, they just want us to pet them & love them back. :f_red:gh_lay
