Goodbye to Dori

Goodbye to Dori

We just got this sad note from Maureen and Gary that their beloved Dori passed away. Our deepest sympathies to Maureen and Gary on their loss. Dori was the third Dane adopted from us. All three had issues, but Maureen and Gary worked through/accepted them and the Danes lived a happy life filled with love.

Here is what Maureen wrote: “Just reaching out to you to let you know we lost Dori.  It was actually a weeks back but I’ve had a hard time talking about her until recently.  We noticed she wasn’t as playful then a couple of days later she seemed to be breathing harder after our walk.  So I took her in to the vet who sent me up to the Veterinary Specialty Clinic in Central Point, OR which he said was on par with UC Davis.  Three hours later I was bringing her body back to bury.  I know I was in disbelief.  The vet said she had a growth around her heart (which she thought was most likely cancerous) that had burst.  They drained 3 liters of blood from her lungs but couldn’t save her.
She was such a sweet, beautiful girl.  For weeks every time I went out the front I expected to see her coming around the side of the house to go for our walk.  We buried her out in the upper pasture where she loved to run so every time I walk the loop I talk to her.  I still miss her.  I’m glad we had her with us for the time we did but it was much too short.
So sorry to send sad news. ”
Maureen
