Mom just called. Lady died a few hours ago. She’s been in a lot of pain these last few months. At least she’s not anymore. Goodbye, girl. I love you.
My family adopted a former racing greyhound about ten years ago. His racing name was Indio Dark Storm, but we called him Stormy. Stormy’s been suffering from arthritis these last several months. It happens with greyhounds. He’d have his good days. I took him into the backyard last week and chased him around. I’m very glad I had the chance. He died today. He would have been thirteen next week.
I miss you, puppy.
