Memories of Myron
Dear Myron (My-My, Mook, Mookers, Mookey-Mooks),

I have no words. You were taken from us way too young. Mommy was watching the website Corkey's Bassets for a while and then she had one pup that was available. The remaining litter passed away and then your mom passed away from a foreign body. You had to be bottled fed. The Corkey's said you were a 'messy boy' and that you were. You were shipped to us in August of 2012 and you made this funny noise since a pup and we called it, 'mookin.'

You were such a handsome boy and so lovable. Mabes mothered you when we brought you home. You were a lazy fella and loved your sleep. You loved to snuggle when you were a pup. We took you to so many events and you loved to go and meet everyone.

You had a lump on you back for about 2 years. We kept treating it and treating it. Finally it had to come off and Dr. Sarah removed it. We sent it out to the lab and we were all shocked to learn it was a rare cancer. We then brought you to Dr. Hamilton to give you oral chemo. You were doing so well. You had yeast skin issues too that we were dealing with.

Then a few nights back you were not yourself. Daddy text me at work to say you didn't eat and was lethargic. Brought you to work the next day and did an ultrasound and found a foreign body, and they wanted to see if this would move on its own and it did not. Next day brought you in for surgery. Sarah removed the sharp chewed cow's hoof. We were going to leave you at Tranquility that night but Sarah suggested you be watched thru the night so we brought you to CROWN. You did fine all night then we got a call in the morning that you were not doing well so we went there. We spoke with the doctor and surgery was an option to see what was going on. The doctor said it would be very risky. We wanted to help you so we okayed the surgery. You made it through and was in recovery. You were stable. I then got a call that you were crashing and the doctor suggested euthanasia and by the time she said that you had already passed. Oh sweet boy, I can't believe you are gone. You were only 7 years and 7 months old. You had so much life to live and love to give. You and Fred played so well together and he misses you like crazy. He tries to play with his other brothers and sisters but they don't want to.

I have a huge hole in my heart. I wish I would have picked up those small pieces of cow's hooves, but I never thought any of you would swallow one.

I hope all your brothers/sisters/aunts/uncles/grandma/grandpa/nanny/pop-pop greeted you at the bridge. Enjoy your new home being united with everyone. Please know the house will not be the same without you. We will always love and miss you. Look down on us every now and then.


Mommy, Daddy, Fred, ZZ, and all your brothers/sisters

1/18/21 - One (1) year ago this night we lost you. I can't believe its a year already. Mommy was all alone that night because daddy was working when I got that awful call. Oh my sweet boy, how I wish I didn't give you guys those cow hooves. I never though in a million years any of you would swallow one. I hope you are happy in your new beautiful home. I hope you greeted Patch and Noel. Noel was such a shock. We came home from mommy's surgery and she was gone. It was awful. Each of you has taken a piece of my heart, and I want to be with all of you. Poor Fred was so lonely and I rushed to get him a baby brother. His name is Boomer and he's such a handful. He's nothing like you, Zinnia, and Fred. He helped Fred get thru your loss and they are best buddies now but they are crazy together. We adopted Mya in your memory and even gave her part of your name. Please know, I am so sorry this happened. I wonder if you weren't on the chemo if you would have been ok. Please tell Noel, I'm so sorry what happened to her and mommy loves her very much and misses her. I wish I would have spent more time with her. Mommy and daddy love you so much! We will be together again some day. Until then, please enjoy, have fun, and be happy.

1/18/22 - Two (2) years it will be tonight. I have a candle burning now. Oh sweet boy, you are so greatly missed. Fred has Boomer, but he's nothing like The Corkey Clan. Fred is so much like you. We just brought in Sophie, a Foxhound. She is nuts but young, she needs to learn. Baxter is stable on his meds and Jesse is somewhat stable. She always will have that couhgh. I hope you greeted Sierra, Hailey, and Bogey at the bridge. I hope you're all together and very happy. This house is crazy as ever, but mommy misses every single one of you. Again, I'm so sorry what happened to you. We tried our best to save you. Run free and have fun, sweet boy. Mommy and Daddy love and miss you so much!
