We lost Jaime this past weekend. We are glad she made it to her 11th birthday. She recovered quickly, and we cherished the extra months we had with her. She was a trooper and put up a good fight. It was a year ago for her 10th that we got Kevin for her birthday present.
We wanted to take her to Grapehounds NY at the end of the month. We had missed Grapehounds VA, since it was the weekend after Stella’s surgery.
Our doggie day breaker passed away about a month ago. She and Jaime really had a bond. Jaime will now have her own personal pet sitter.
Through no fault of her’s, Jaime had bounced twice by the time she made it to our house. Her racing name was Black Majik Lass.
Kris asked ‘how do you feel about a black dog’? I said we already have a black dog (Parker). We took her to the local St. Patty’s Day parade, and someone saw her, wanted her, put in an application to get her, and Kris was going to take Jaime to the home visit. Till she cried and said she didn’t want to give her up.
Since then, I always told Jaime she was the 'Longest Foster Ever'. What was supposed to be an overnight stay, turned into a great addition to our family
She was a smiler and a Hoopty. Even after her amputation, she would bounce up and down on her one good leg during feeding time.
Stella and Stanley’s pic is in the runner up article for losing a greyhound and adopting again in the winter 2012 CG magazine. Guess it would have been more appropriate to have Jaime’s pic in there.
We don’t question that we will have more greys. Maybe even sooner than later. When we lost our first boy, Lucas, it only took a couple of weeks before Stanley was on his way up to be a part of our family. Here is the last pic I took of Jaime. She is doing what she loved best. Taking naps on the bed with her brother and sister.
Osteo: The club no one wants to join. Another blogging greyhound was recently lost to Osteo over at Tales and Tails. And another recently joined the dreaded club at Shutterhounds.
