|Draeanne gives Bonnie a kiss|
November 29, 2013
It is with great sadness that I write this post. Draeanne, the elder of Bonnie's two wolfhounds, unexpectedly passed away on Friday, the result of a tumor that was silently lurking inside.
On Christmas Day, she had a little episode that was easily mistaken for indigestion or even anxiety due to the excitement of visiting dogs. She seemed to recover just fine, but the next day had a recurrance which knocked her for a loop and signalled something was seriously wrong. A trip to the vet located a large tumour for which there was no viable treatment and which had become critical. Bonnie made the very difficult decision to help her to pass.
I first met Draeanne back in 2009, when she was one of a trio of wolfhounds who shared their lives with Bonnie and Bob. Blue and Mara, the other two of that trio, passed away a couple of years ago. Last year, Bob and Bonnie brought Keaghan into their circle, and he and Draeanne became great friends.
Keaghan, Draeanne and Bonnie lost Bob to a heart attack suddenly this fall, and my heart goes out to my friend whose world has been shattered again so soon.
Hugs, my friend. I am so very sorry for yet another loss in your life.
