Dog II
(aka It's Blue Devil, aka Blue)
March 4, 2005 - February 5, 2013

Dog II was a gentleman & a warrior.

An auto-immune disease attacked Dog II's salivary glands.  We weren't able to stop the process with medication, & he was too frail, with too much compromised tissue, to hope for a positive surgical outcome.

  1. We are so terribly sorry to hear this news! We've missed you on Twitter. We always adored Dog II and his straight man ways! Our hearts are heavy tonight.

    The first Greyhound who lived here had epilepsy and was very beloved, but sadly, our house is not a quiet place.

  4. We are crushed. We have loved the intermittent update on Ambrose, Dog II and Jiggler too. Saying we're sorry for your loss(es) seems so lame. The earth is a little less bright today.

  6. That's so sad. It must have been horrible, at least Dog II's suffering and battling is now over. I hope Jiggler finds the perfect place to call home.

  7. My heart is broken for you. I'm glad you have so many wonderful people to help you. There just are no words, you are in a horrible time. What a wonderful life Dog II had with you and his brothers. I know those memories bring smiles. I love what you said about Jiggler because it is so true, "Jiggler's heart is so GREAT BIG HUGE just like the rest of him that there is a special place there for all of his moms, past, present, & future." Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, and thank you for sharing your boys with us. Love you, Dog II. Rest in peace, sweet boy.

  9. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed Dog II being Amby's "straight man" but he was also a gentleman and such a good boy. I'm sorry you've had to go thru all of this with him, he was lucky to have you there with him. Jiggler is a huge love bug, I luv that jiggler luvs everyone. I hope he finds a great home and maybe you and Amby and him can have some play dates? *hugs* if you ever need to chat you know I'm here on twitter and Instagram.
