Kimkim September 1, 1990 - October 25, 2005

I received this note from my friend last night. I was able to spend some time with KimKim on Sunday.....


This is just a quick note to let you know that Kimi has become very

immobile over a short period of time. Over the past few months she has been

getting slower and unstable in motion, but since the weekend she is unable to

walk on her own and is in a lot of pain.


We made the tearful decision to let her go out of this world with dignity.

Tonight at 8:30 PM Kimi will join Siri and Callie and all of our other animal

friends at the Rainbow Bridge.


Kimi is 15 years old. She was one of the first greyhounds in our area and she is

currently the Grande Dame of the Pocono Adoption Group, being the oldest memberby quite a distance. She has met many other greyhounds and has imparted her wisdom on them. Not only has she done that, but she has shown them that you can have a life after the track and that it is good! She was a middle-of-the-road racer, but she is a #1 member of this family.


Kimi put her nose in every birthday cake before a human ever touched it. She ate

a few Mother's Day presents and even stole a few steaks.


When we first adopted Kimi she was just a shell of a dog; trusting and scared.

She could not go up or down stairs and even ran into the sliding glass door on

more than one occasion! Kevin soon taught her what a "lip drop" is and she, one

her own, learned the comfort of a sofa or a human's bed! She learned how to

play, how to be part of a human family... and eventually she was even able to

get that long body down to sit!


With her light brindle color, Kimi has always blended in with the fall leaves in

the back yard!! But she would soon be noticed as she came running at you in an

attempt to play. She has always been good with the other animals. The cats would

prod on her, Little Man even thought she was his mother! She was even seen with

one of the rats on her back every now and again!


Whenever we took her in public, Kimi ate up the attention from all the people.

They asked what kind of dog she was, how fast was she and why is she so skinny!

She enjoyed the attention.


Kimi has been the Queen of the Castle since we lost Siri back in '96. She very

rarely had to use her deep bellowing voice as Beaner has always been her right

hand, taking care of the light work!


We will miss Kimi dearly. She came to our home on April 10, 1994. She was born

September 1, 1990. Please light a candle for her this evening to help light her
