All Our Children Meow and Woof: Finnegan

All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

We've been lurking for a while, and it breaks our heart that we're posting for this reason. Your letter to Finnegan made us cry. Be at peace, Finnegan, and run and play without pain.

Brown dog kisses,

What a beautiful boy. I'm sure you miss him terribly. I also feel sure he loved his life with you and was happy every single moment of it.

So long Finny!

Finny is totally unforgettable! That one photo session you and he had together cracked us up so much, and made us cry too to see all the love and trust between the two of you!

I think you both made out like bandits in the relationship. It's obvious that this was not a one-sided love affair.

Finnegan, I will always think of you with your ears and fur flying... as you run like the WIND!

Goob love,
Stanley & Lisa

We didn't really know Finny, except for all the times he was mentioned with love by our mutual friends. Butlooking at his photos today, and reading your story, we know how deeply you will feel his loss and we ache for you.

But there he'll be,healthy and chatting with his pals who crossed over the Bridge recently too. Run free, big guy!!!

So sorry that you've lost your wonderful boy, although it is perhaps comforting to know that he, QB and Megan are all together now, causing Kaos over the bridge.

We'll miss you, dooog. You were so cool.

What a beautiful boy you were Finnegan. What love you must have given to your family, and what love they gave back to you. They must have been very strong to let you go - such a hard time.

Sleep in peace.

I have been reading about Finny since my bullmastiff, Titan, was diagnosed with the C. You have been such an inspiration to us. You gave me hope, the will to fight and to listen to my heart. What a hero. We thank you.
