Rainbow Bridge - Likable (Casey)
June 8, 2005 - July 22, 2012
We are sad to report the loss of another FFGR, Inc. hound to lymphoma. We had all been following Trish's posts about her beloved Casey. After a short illness, Casey went on to the Rainbow Bridge. We all know that it was very difficult for Jeff, Trish and the kids to say goodbye. No matter how much we all prepare for the inevitable, it still breaks our hearts to say goodbye. Casey got to the place that she no longer would eat and it was clear that she was tired and had enough. Trish and Jeff did the most loving thing and let her go.
We remember when Trish brought her hound Joey over to meet available dogs and how Casey stole her heart (and Joey's!). We told Trish that the best part of doing this work is meeting and knowing people who adopt a hound and make it part of the family. Although Trish and her family are broken hearted at this time, we can all take solace in the fact that Casey had the most loving home that any greyhound could have. She will be greatly missed, not only by her family, but all of her FFGR, Inc. friends and family who met her through her many meet and greet events. I always loved going to Trish's house and was so happy to be greeted by the hounds. Casey was the most exhuberant of the trio and always had a bounce and kiss for me.
She was a beautiful tall girl with the most pleasing personality. We think it was because she was so happy. Rest in peace lovely girl knowing that you were greatly loved.
