Greyhound Adoption in Puget Sound, Washington and British Columbia
Dearly missed by Cathy, Jack, Mike, Sam and Dan Munro
Daisy left us way too soon at the young age of 5 and a half years old. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the right shoulder area on Friday, October 29, 2010 via our vet’s strong suspicion of osteo and confirmation via a radiology report.Â We scheduled an amputation on Tuesday, November 2nd and I set up an appointment with a vet oncologist but sadly, Daisy passed away sometime during the night or early morning hours of November 3rd from a post-op complication.
Daisy was a conundrum of personalities all rolled up into her beautiful thick white-blonde fur. She was shy around children and would hide behind me yet she could be so full of life when she was perfectly comfortable. She could be head strong and not want to come inside until I shook my pocket of treats. She didn’t always get a treat when she came in because I knew I was being manipulated.
Daisy had been working on a hole to China in our backyard. Every once in awhile, I would fill it in but she’d always re-dig it. She’d dig then spin around, dig some more, spin and dig furiously until she was content with what she had accomplished then she would flop down in her hole on top of the soft soil and lay down in the sun. It was really one of her all-time favorite things to do.
When we get Daisy’s ashes back, I plan to scatter them in her favorite hole, plant a tree and re-fill the hole for the very last time. That way, she’ll always be outside in the sun where she always preferred to be.
The Munro family would like to thank everyone for their well-wishes, emails and calls. Special thanks to the vets and members of Circle of Grey for their support, especially for their wonderful healing blanket. I’ve been wrapping the blanket around me before I go to sleep at night. Somehow, it helps to comfort me.
Daisy, you will be in our hearts forever.
