My heart has been ripped out. My gorgeous big shiny black boy Finn has joined his brother and best bud Griffin who was waiting at the bridge. To lose 2 within a month of each other is more than I can bear. Finn took ill right after Christmas and we have spent the last 2 weeks going from 1 specialist to another. He had a very aggressive cancer in his sinus area.
Finn came from GPA Tampa and was picked out for me as a good candidate for obedience and therapy. He excelled in that area as well as spening some time as a runway model and PR guy for greyhound adoption. Finn was also wonderful as a mentor for all the foster iggies who have spent time here as well as being the recipient of Jessica's dental hygiene ministrations. I am lost.
This is the first time in 17 years that there has't been a greyhound (or two/three) at my side. My house and heart feel empty.
Run free good boy!

That's so tragic, losing two favoured greys within a month. Words fail me. My sincere condolences and may Finn and Griffin be playing happily together at the bridge, regards Deb

Grey friends that have lost their kids to cancer recently. It is such insidious disease for Greys. I am praying for you. Tears
fill my eyes and there is a pain in my heart. Run Free Finn.
