The Rev


Recommended Posts

On june 30-03 we got a call from a shelter that they just picked up a grey. it was 60 miles away we told them we would be there in one hr. --when they brought him out it took your breath away. we signed the papers and were about to leave when the phone rang it was his abusers and they wanted him back so sharon got on the phone and told them if they wanted him to go to west memphis and explain to Jan how he got in this condition. we put him in our van and headed for our vet. Sharon rode in the back with him and started picking ticks off. at the vets we all picked engorged ticks to a total of 96 ticks. he had masses of fleas also , vet did all the tests and found he had been SHOT in his left front leg and had heart worms we paid the bill and took him home and started the flea bathes. two months later we adopted him out, but I wanted to keep him. a year later we learned he was in another bad situation so we went and stole him back then back to the vet again this time he was heart worm free but had fleas so bad it was unreal. flea dirt a eight inch thick and had lost 20 lbs. this time we agreed he would stay with us , in no time he gained 20 lbs his hair returned to a very shinny black and he became the happiest Grey you ever seen and went to almost all the M&G's and other events he also minded perfectly he was second in comand and took over when Larry left , our two boys are gone now and can never be replaced the pain is great for us both. we both held him and he passed in peace. The Revs name was GREYS REVOLUTION out of LPD MAKERS MARK and GREYS QUICK DRAW

The Rev was probably, hands down, my favorite rescue story on Greytalk and the dog with one of the best names of all time.


I wonder if a dog could be loved more than the Rev. I really do. We will all miss him.


I am so so sorry. Now, your broken hearts need to heal.... :f_red

Dan & Sharon,

I know your hearts are breaking...the loss of Rev is so great....he was special to everyone. Just like Rev...both of you are special to everyone on Greytalk...and we are all here for you.

The reunion in September just isn't going to be the same this year, but I think the Rev & Larry will be there in spirit!

Thank you for sharing The Rev's story with everyone...It not only shows us what a great pupsie he was, but what great people you & Sharon are.

Love you always



He found his forever home, and he's not leaving it: your hearts.


THIS IS SO TRUE...he's nestled in for the long haul!
