I am so sad to report we have lost our beautiful "tiger dog" to aggressive bone cancer, the most common cause of death for retired racing greyhounds. What makes it most difficult is that it was only about a month from the time we first noticed a limp and took him to the vet to where he was clearly suffering despite heavy pain medication. Even though he was only with us for two years, he's left a very big greyhound-shaped hole in our hearts. Our household is a much sadder place these days.
