crackadog created the topic: Losing a wonderful deerhound
Just a short announcement to record the passing today of Freya. She was just a month from her eleventh birthday.
She lay in a favourite spot in the house and our lovely vet helped her to gently fall into a very peaceful sleep. The sun was shining and the birds singing so a truly beautiful way for her to leave us.
She was strong in heart and lungs and spirit but a brain tumour meant her legs lost co ordination and she seemed to get occasional spasms of pain and mental confusion.
Freya was a wonderful, gentle giant whom we all loved and will miss so much. She is now at rest.
Many thanks for all the help and advice we received on this forum and especially to Jeorg who has kept the site going all this time despite so many folks going to Facebook instead.
