Lost our beloved Di today. Bone cancer.

Strange, she was born, raised, raced and had babies in Colorado. She got very sick Tuesday and we scheduled her then to be euthanized
today, and it snowed here in Dallas the most ever since keeping records. She loved the snow. I'm impressed with her connections.
No matter how many times you go through it never gets any easier to let them go.
So very sorry for your loss.

It's never a "replacement" -- but I'm sure there's a fine dog out there waiting to fill that hole in your heart.

Thanks everyone. We had 5 rescued greyhounds over the last 15 years, not one of them lived past 12 years old. Racing is hard on them.
We still have Lilly, a weenie dog who was dropped-off at the shelter after she couldn't have anymore babies (nice people, huh). The shelter saved her with an operation
and we got her. She is blind in one eye, which happens with the blue-eyed double-dapple dachshunds. We will just have her for awhile, she is missing
her big sister a lot.
This is the last pic of Di - Lilly came over and smelled Di's leg, where the cancer was, and laid over her legs for an hour. Di was out of it because of the medicine we had to give her.
