Today is a very sad day for Marcos and Alvaro, Eurydice’s breeders and for myself. 

It is with a very heavy heart that I say Eurydice’s father, Elixir d’Amour earned his XXL silver wings today.

Elixir d’Amour was an exceptional dog, had two cruciate ligament surgeries when he was very young and was given a very poor prognosis but he enjoyed life to the full for over nine years instead.

This goes to show prognostics are worth what they are worth and one should never give up on our babies.

He was very frail recently and the wintery weather did not help.

He was taking cortisone and other medication and was loved beyond words but overnight he became completely paralysed so time had come for him to join Angel Capriccio, Eurydice’s Mom and Angel Eurydice.

He is happy now with all of our Angels, it is time for us who were left behind to mourn and miss his loving, cheerful, goofy presence but we have to take comfort in knowing he is happy now, very, very happy as he flies from cloud to cloud with Angel Eurydice on the lead. 

Run free sweet Elixir you will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting you 🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

We are deeply sorry Marcos, Alvaro and Teresa, a sad day indeed. Elixir was such a handsome, stunning dog. Clearly loved beyond words and such a treasured part of all of your lives. 

I can see him now with his family, soaring through the heavens and watching after all those he loved. He is free, he is eternal.

Our deepest condolences to your pack.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

What a lovely family Elixir has.  There is nothing more stately and striking than a Great Dane.  So very sorry to hear of this loss–he was so clearly cherished.  Many hugs to his family, and wishes for comfort at this very difficult time.  heart

Fallon's left front leg was amputated due to osteosarcoma on 10/11/17.

Thanks for letting us know Teresa.  To you, to Marcos and to Alvaro, we extend our heartfelt condolences. 

Such a beautiful  family of human Souls and magnificent  dog Souls.  Through Eurydice (and Baby Palmoro too), we had the privilege  of meeting this stunning handsome boy.  So magnificent, so very, very magnificent!

I can only imagine the joy as Eloxir got closer and closer to the Bridge and realized Eurydice and Capri were there to greet him!  Oh my goodness, the woofs of glee were so loud the Angels had to wear ear plugs!

Surrounding  you with all the many happy  memories Elixir  shared with all❤

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

So very sorry, Theresa, Marcos and Alvaro, you had to bid a fond and loving farewell to Elixir.  He was, as Sally said above, truly magnificent.  And named for one of my favorite operas.  (Also quite fond of Orpheo ed Eurydice, though).  

Fly free, beautiful boy.  Much loved, deeply missed.

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His Daddy and I miss him terribly along with his canine sister, Mia, and two feline siblings, Lucia and Cliff.

Oh my, I missed this somehow. I am so very sorry. Sending big hugs and comfort to all of you. I know Eurydice is helping her papa learn how to use his new and beautiful XXL wings now, and I know all of you will miss him here on earth. Such an amazing family, their love knows no boundaries for their furbabies. So very sorry for your loss.

Big hugs to all of you 🕊💖🐾🐮🐾💖🕊

Jackie and Huckleberry heart

Hugs,

Jackie, David, Bo, Andy, Oscar, Angel Mitchell, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry
