    Greyhounds are dearest to my heart. I also love gardening, nature,
    all animals and of course, my family!
  1. Jan, thank you for the comforting words. Callie's daylily has been blooming as it never has before. Each day there are more flowers that open that form almost a bouquet shape. They are bright and lovely just as she was. I want to thank everyone for the kind words for Callie. She was a real sweetheart!
  2. Our hearts are broken to say goodbye to our beautiful Callie. At the GAS kennel her nickname was "Merry", the perfect description for this lovely girl. She was outgoing, loved people and seemed to be without a care in the world, as long as she was with her people. Callie had the sweetest personality. She was content, happy, never demanding and always quietly moving through life. Callie was always ready for a walk or ride and loved to greet people at the door. Callie could have her silly moments. She had a spot under our lilac bush where she routinely would dig a hole. Tucked into "her spot" she would look very pleased with herself. We have been so fortunate that Callie has been healthy during the almost 10 years she has been with us. Except for treating her daily with eye drops for Pannus, she has avoided many of the illnesses our other greyhounds have experienced. It was only in June of this year that she experienced Vestibular Disease. She was able to recover nicely in a few days and gradually could resume her morning walks. I really enjoyed our walks together as it was just the two of us in the early morning listening to the birds and the start of a new day. I loved the way she would almost dance with excitement as we began walking. She turned 13 in July and was as perky as ever. On July 23, Callie experienced another Vestibular event. I rushed her to the e-vet where it became clear that she might have had a stroke. She was transferred to a Vet. hospital with a neurologist, but the outlook was grim. They sent her home hoping there would be improvement in a familiar surrounding. She had a peaceful night and seemed content to be home. The next morning she had another stroke and it was clear we had to let her go. Callie, my sweet girl, I will miss your quite, gentle presence every day. When I take my walk I will think of the lovely moments we had together. Thank you for coming into my life and bringing so much joy to our house. You will be in my heart forever.
  3. Ducky, could you please add our Callie to your list? Our beautiful brindle girl went to the bridge yesterday.
  4. Happy 12th Birthday Bea! Your birthday celebration was lots of fun with some pretty neat treats. Looks like all the Campers enjoyed their food too!
  5. Jan, Trevor was indeed the best, sweetest and handsome boy. He was so gentle and welcoming. A few days late but Happy Birthday Trevor! You were outstanding and will always be missed.
  6. Cletus looks very much at home with the Campers. I bet he'll begin to think he's a greyhound in no time. Welcome home Cletus and Happy Gotcha Day to Aiden!
  7. Jan, it is hard to believe that it is two years since Paddy had to leave. He was a very special boy who brought new meaning to the word "Mayhem".
  8. Happy Birthday Miss M! What a great way to celebrate at the Pancake Breakfast. You look elegant in your scarf as you charmed all the folks at the Rotary. :beatheart
  9. Jan, listening to Celtic music! What a great way to celebrate Saint Paddy's Day. Aiden looks like he was quite comfy. He certainly was very dapper wearing "the green".
  10. Welcome home Petunia. She has the loveliest eyes and facial expression. This beauty looks like she is already quite at home. I look forward to seeing more photos. Congratulations!

    I am so sorry for your loss. Mazy was a beautiful and very sweet girl. It is heartbreaking to do everything possible to save a beloved dog and you cannot cure them. And your girl was so young. In her years with you she was supremely happy and content. Mazy knew she was in her forever home and was loved dearly. Rest well sweet girl. You will be deeply missed.
  12. Happy Birthday Punkin! What a special birthday party with lots of good treats. Camp Greyhound celebrates in style!
  13. Jan, this is so heartbreaking to see. Trevor, with his beautiful soft face and sweet eyes, will be dearly missed. He was truly a gentle soul who gave his heart to you on the day you brought him home. He was loved, content and happy which every wonderful photo of him showed. I am so sorry he had to leave. Rest well sweet Trevor. You will always be remembered.
  14. Happy Gotcha Day Trevor. You are such a sweet senior boy. Enjoy those naps in the sun and trotting around CG's yard. :beatheart :beatheart :beatheart
