Default Cougar died this morning

Cougar was a retired racing greyhound. I had him for almost five years. He had been really sick and lost almost 35% of his body weight, but I thought we had it under control. He had started gaining the weight back & was showing good signs of recovery. Last night, he vomited his dinner (which wasn't unusual for him, even before he got sick). This morning he started shaking, then he lay down, screamed once and died.

From one Dave to another that has gone though this you have my deepest sympathy. Tipping one to Cougar right now.

You know what. I'm feeling for you David. I'm going to go pour one and raise a toast.

Sorry to hear that. It is always hard to lose a member of the family.

David, I am so sorry to hear this. This is a hard blow after you worked so long to get him better. One thing I am certain is that his life with you was far better than most retired racing dogs and I sure he loved you twice as much for it.
