  1. I don't feel I possess the skill needed to pay a proper tribute to this extraordinary being. I can't really call her a dog, because she never thought of herself as a dog. She was people and that was just the way it was. Three days ago I helped the her to The Bridge. She was almost 14 and over the past year had gotten progressively weaker in her back end. Acupuncture had been our friend for the past year and had kept her mobile and comfortable, that is until this past week when she began to fall and was unable to get up. To say my heart is broken is an understatement. I was, however, so blessed to have her share my life for the past decade. She was truly a princess and a gift that arrived just when I needed one. Everyone who ever met her and looked into her big, beautiful, intelligent eyes was smitten and commented that there was something very special about her. She was the ultimate Meet and Greet dog and ambassador for greyhound adoption. When she wore the donation vest at events would catch the eye of passing strangers and literally will them to come over to pet her and reach into their wallets. My grief is intense, but underneath is eternal gratitude. She wasn't supposed to have been mine originally but came to me to foster when the original adopter opted out. It didn't take me long to know she wasn't going anywhere as she had already taken residence in my heart. And there she still resides, always and forever. Run free, Lofty Princess. I'll catch you later.
  2. I make a mixture of carrots and beets and give them to my galgo, Cristiano. Good results here too. It has firmed his stool up nicely and no flakey skin.
  3. I've not been around much lately and am just seeing this. I'm so very sorry. Thank you for taking in two seniors in need at such difficult times for all of you. May they help heal you hearts.
  4. I've not been here in a while, so I'm just seeing your tribute to your beloved Phaelin. I'm so very sorry.
  5. Just seeing this beautiful tribute to your beloved Murray. I'm so sorry.
  6. Such a beautiful tribute to your beloved Zeke. I'm so very sorry.
  7. I'm sorry you are going through this. I lost my beloved galgo, Cruz, to CRF in 2012.
  8. A beautiful, heartfelt tribute to your very special boy.
  9. I have no idea about statistics, but I've had 5 retired races since 1993. Of the 5, two had sleep startle. Both bit me at least once, but fortunately neither was a bite that broke the skin. One, Frostman, got a little better over the years, but never completed got over it. Carly, who was also somewhat of a spook, never got over hers.
  10. I'm so sorry you've lost your sweet girl.
  11. I also have this one at Robin's recommendation. My galgo can't drag me after squirrels anymore and he can't back out of it. The 2 Hounds harness always worked well for my greyhounds, but my galgo backed out of it.

  14. I'm so sorry, Anne. I've always enjoyed your wonderful photos of the very beautiful Spriet. The video of her in her younger days is just lovely. Thank you for sharing her with us.
