Dedicated to Dean
I mentioned a little bit ago that my greyhound had been diagnosed with cancer in his bone and a fast growing tumor where his front leg met his chest. Walking had become troublesome quickly. Breathing was beginning to be labored. The hardest decision for a loving pet owner was made. Dean was put down yesterday. Michael, thankfully, was there with him. I was overwhelmed with the sadness of the moment and could not be with him. Intense. I thought I would have a handle on this...control. I did not. Still tearing today.
We rescued him from a race track in Iowa, where he was well cared for by his owner's, 7 years ago. He was a kind, peculiar, loving dog. he lived for love and food! I truly miss him.
