Runner How I Still Miss You

Since I last felt the velvet of your ears,

Since I last saw the smile on your face,

Since I last felt you move with such grace?

Runner I still miss you so very much

What I wouldn't give for one more touch

Of your sweet nose to me to let me know

You were ready, come on mom, let's go.

You were so young, not even eight,

The picture of health, you were so greyt.

The day started out with such a bright sun,

We went to the M&G you had so much fun,

We were standing there, you were leaning on me,

I was soaking up the feelings, my heart felt so free,

Scritching your ears, knowing you were a God Send,

Little did I know that it all would soon end

In a moment with no notice, you collapsed at my side,

I wanted to go with you, every day since I have cried.

The pain is so fresh it still rips at my core

To not be able to ever see you here once more.

You taught me so much, the gift that you shared,

More greyhounds joined me, you got me prepared,

For the joy of the hounds, the love of the breed,

In that job, my boy, you sure did succeed.

Runner, you will always be my first,

The pain in my heart makes it want to burst,

But I continue to work with homing your friends,

That is the work that will never end.

Because of you my Runner, my Brindle Bubba Boy,

My life is so changed, it's a result of your joy,

But know when you left, a part of me did too,

You left your pawprint on my heart, that spot belongs only to you.


Runner, I miss and love you so very very much, you are racing in the wind with my heart and soul in your paws.

Thank you all for your kind words and warm hugs today. It has been a very difficult day for me, I even got sick and had to come home, spent half the afternoon on the floor with my hounds, the other half on GT. Runner was very special, and yes Cara Lea, he sent me two signs today. (more will be revealed).


Heather, we lived in Daytona, and both Runner and SugarBear celebrated their birthdays during bike week, Runner loved his Harley jacket, and it has been passed on to a very special GT hound (if he wakes up enough to wear it.)


Again, thank you all, the love shown through your posts has helped me on an extremely emotional, difficult day. I don't think it ever does get any easier. :bighug

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.
