She was a special needs Greyhound, but that never stopped her from seizing life. She was always at the window when Daddy came home from work. Always leaping with joy when the leash came out for her walk. She was born deformed but that never stopped her. She loved her Hedgehogs. We seemed to go through them monthly. We would catch her laying her head on them when she was resting. It was so common to hear her run around the house & up the stairs with 1 in her mouth, squeaking it loudly and proudly. God gave her to us to heal broken hearts and to make us see the joy in every day.|
One day she started limping. That f****** cancer claimed her and took her. She was only 9. We lost 3 to 4 more years with her. Gato, our cat, still misses her. The day she died Gato hid under the bed and didn't come out for 2 days. When she did there tear stains on her face. Both mommy & daddy cried until there was no water left for tears. It's amazing how they take hold of your soul and don't let go.
I guess God needed her in his fields to show other special need guys the way. No more pain, what a joy.
I know she is there waiting for us and when we she sees us her little heart will burst with joy. Between the kisses and the hugs the tears will flow again. But this time they will be tears of joy. We will be able to walk together in the fields of the lord enjoying God's gifts. By then Gemma, Clifton, Gato & Pipper will be with us.
Life is grand but living has to have pain to truly experience life.
We miss you Saffy and will see again 1 day.
