Del - It's 3 Years Since You Had To Leave


Recommended Posts

Hello little Del :wub:


Three years ago you picked your moment to let us know it was time to leave. We didn't want you to go but more than that, we didn't want you to be unhappy or suffer so we made the call.


You were our first senior greyhound, adopted when you were 10 years old and the vet gave you a month. I was determined not to become attached to you and prepared myself to just give you care and attention and make you comfortable for the short time you would be with us. Hmmm. It doesn't quite work like that with a senior greyhound, does it? :rolleyes::wub: And you weren't going anywhere after a month - you'd decided that you felt a lot better thanks and were planning on staying around to torment the other dogs and say rarrrrrrr a lot if they bugged you :)


The pictures I have are so typical 'Del' that they surely tell of your cheek and charm without any more words.






























Now you'll be with Jessie (who you paved the way for) and Maddison (who drove you nuts and is no doubt still doing so) and watching over us. Sally & Flo & Stan (and Jessie) and the seniors who are yet to come say thank you for laying the foundations so well :wink:


Always remembering you Delbert :wub:

10th Sept 1991 - 11th March 2003

What a wonderful tribute. It is so amazing to me to read these amazing tributes, and see that while everyone still really misses their babies, they can, and do move on.


You look like such a love, Delbert (and I LOVE the name). I wish you a happy Anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge! :wub:
