Run free of pain Lucy.

I'm very sorry for your loss. I have enjoyed watching Lucy and Clifford walk all over the Finger Lakes with you.
Thank you for sharing her life with us, Jen.

Grieve as you will. We understand. Love to you and Clifford.

I'm so sad for you, Jen. It is always so tough. I hope the memories have you smiling again soon. I never met Lucy, but my favorite memory is the photo of her cute face with the pink frilly stuff around her neck and the caption reads "is this the face of a Canine Good Citizen?" or something like that.

Oh Jen, I'm so very sorry. I'm crying. I wanted to write you after your last post, but I chickened out. The video you took of Lucy struggling was so similar to what our grey-baby Willow had been doing, and we had just lost Willow on Feb 20. She had a tumor on her heart that was causing fluid to build up around her lungs. We kept her with us as long as we could, but it was time to let her go. I know how heart broken you are. I'm still going through it myself. Know that you aren't alone, and you gave her a wonderful, happy life.

Jen, I'm so sorry that you lost Lucy. It's so hard to lose them. She knows you love her. I know you have lots of great memories of her and she will always be there with you. I'll be sending lots of love to you, Clifford, and Jack.

My thoughts are with you. I have so enjoyed getting to know Lucy through your blog, and I mourn her passing. Please take special care of yourself during this time. Your love for that girl is what it's all about.

Oh no. I'm so sorry. Their lives are just too short.

Jen said...

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers!

Jen, Cliff and Jack

In loving memory of Caesar D. (April 1995-Jan. 6, 2009) http://caesard.blogspot.com said...

Hi Jen, I was looking up "greyhound breathing hard on walks" on Google, and I could not believe my eyes when one of the results that popped up was your blog. Then I read further and realized it was bad news. I'm so sorry Lucy ended up being in an emergency situation, but the important thing is that you were there with her. When I brought Roman to OSU in August, I couldn't believe how many dogs had oral cancer. Locally, I know of someone who lost his lovely black greyhound girl, "Cheer," to oral cancer as well. She was treated at Cornell and lived 7 more mos. I certainly know the inexplicable grief related to the loss of a fur family member, as I lost Caesar D. Jan. 6, 2009. I still have my blackie GH, "Roman," who is 12 yr., 3 mos. with health problems.

Take care of yourselves. Rest in peace, Lucy!

Deedee D. and Roman, Liverpool
