My sister lost her almost-7 year old Greyhound Lacey this morning. She had not been acting right for about a week and progressively deteriorated over the last 24-36 hours. The thought is meningitis or some sort of spinal lesion. After seizures and her becoming unable to walk this morning we made the decision. She was peaceful and had her head in my sisters lap.

This all comes just 3 months after my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is not married and Lacey was her child. She has really needed her and counted on her to get through the treatment. Lacey had such a calm and peaceful manner about her.

Pray that she will have the strength to get through this.

RIP Lacey 1/22/2002-11/18/2009

You are beloved.

I am so deeply sorry for your Sister's loss of her beautiful, sweet Lacey. It is so incredibly sad, and your Sister has been through so much with her own diagnosis of breast cancer. Sending many thoughts and prayers for her to continue to have strength and peace, and feel Lacey's presence...as I know she is very much still with her, watching over her at the bridge.

Sending healing thoughts for your sister in the loss of her Lacey and the recovery of her cancer. I hope she will be able to open her heart to another dog in the future. It could help with her recovery.

I am so sorry. Breed doesn't matter when it comes to love. My first loves were English Setters and Irish Setters and I hav loved every once as much as I have loved my goldens.

I am married, but my husband is a cross country trucker gone 2-3 weeks at a time, only home 2-3 days as a rule, then back out. Our kids are grown and gone. I have developed vision problems that prevent me from driving, so I am here with Honey, our adopted golden mix and we are so close so I totally understand how you sister felt about her precious girl. Perhaps she nees another one tokeep her busy. I hav always gotten another dog as soon as I could, just can't seem to get along with a dog to care for.

I'm so sorry to read this. It's always hard to lose a loved one, but I'm sure it's especially hard when you yourself are already struggling. I hope your sister can turn to her family and friends for the support and love that Lacey may have been giving her until now. I'm sorry.

Thanks everybody, I can't seem to stop crying...

About another dog, I certainly think she needs one too. She did ask about when my litter will be ready. Our girl is coming home the first week of Jan., so maybe...

She also said she could never get another greyhound. I felt the same way after my Patch, who was the reason she got Lacey. She did go to chemo today, because Lacey would want her too, she said. Poor baby. My heart breaks for her.

I am so sorry your sister lost Lacey - especially at this stressful time.

I hope and pray she finds some peace and tell to please keep taking care of herself.

It doesn't matter what they are - they live in your heart and the loss is so very hard to bear.

Please pass on my condolences to your sister. It doesn't matter that Lacey was not a golden, she was loved by her family just the same. RIP Lacey and run free at Rainbow Bridge.
