Lucy was our first greyhound, and my dearest heart dog. She taught me about love and compassion, and loyalty.

I wrote this poem when she died. :brokenheart


Lucy (Nasty Rose)

December 12, 1989 - December 2, 2002


Remembering Lucy


Soft eyes, gentle face

resting now in God's embrace


loyal companion, noble friend

we hoped your life would never end


a life so short, yet so profound

dearest companion, sweet greyhound


so much love have we for you

and you for us, we know that too


your final race was so unfair

we miss you so, it's hard to bear


though broken hearts in time may mend

we'll not forget our loyal friend


precious Lucy, we're so glad you came

our lives will never be the same.




With all our love, Bobby, Joslin, Cricket, Stormy and Skye

What a beautiful tribute to your precious girlie. I hope you'll post pictures someday of your hounds. :grouphug

Jeanne with Remington & Scooter the cat
....and Beloved Bridge Angels Sandee, Shari, Wells, Derby, Phoenix, Jerry Lee and Finnian.....
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again.

With pleasure!


Here is our lovely, sweet angelgrey Cricket (Get Kickin')




And the handsome Stormy (M's Stormrunner)




And our newest family member, Cuffy (Off the Cuff)




Regrettably, I have no digital pictures of Lucy (Nasty Rose). Does anyone know if old photos can be scanned in somehow?

That is a lovely poem.


If you have a access to a good quality scanner you can make a digital piccy out of your photo. I believe at the drugstores, at least Walgreens, they have a Machine that does this.
