March 2004 – July 2010
There are just times when life sucks….like last July for example. It started out well, then grew progressively worse.
Osteosarcoma is something every Retired Racing Greyhound owner fears. It is so common in the breed. In Scooter’s case it began with what we all thought was tendonitis in his right shoulder. Time proved us wrong and at only 6 years of age it claimed his life. I can’t even begin to describe how much he is missed. Broken hearts occur often at this house as we have had 19 greyhounds (among other pets) and cancer, of some form, has stolen just about everyone of them away from us.
Some might think it might get easier to deal with the loss when it happens over and over, but I can tell you first hand, it does not. Personally, I feel Scooters loss has been one of the hardest for me to deal with since the loss of my first Greygirl Blaze so many years ago.
Scooter now resides at the Rainbow Bridge with all of my other lost loves that I hope to see again one day.
