A friend's beautiful greyhound died Friday. Noni was so very sweet, black with a white chest and greying muzzle. So patient with her 2 goofy fur brothers, Harley and Shay-Shay, so good to her new fur sister Rhonda.

Noni died suddenly at home of an apparant heart attack. Her mom was with her and then she was gone.

Noni folks aren't members on GT, but they have worked selflessly for years to help greyhounds. They've fostered and made collars and coats. They are a major source of fundraising for our satellite group, Coastal Greys of GFNC.


PhillyPups never met Miss Noni but she created this special poem just for her:


Mom and Dad as I look down on you,

From my place at the bridge, what a wonderful view.

I see you busy helping all my friends,

With the love in your hearts that never ends.

Please know it was time, I needed to go,

There are so many hounds that still need you so.

Please do not mourn my coming here to stay,

Knowing how I was loved by you each and every day.

I left with a smile upon my face,

I was the quiet one full of dignity and grace.

I thank you for our home so full of love,

I brought some of that love to comfort me here above.

I am still with you I have my paw print on your heart,

Though I am gone, we will never part.

You taught me so much, you gave your all,

You dressed me so well from head to paw.

Please do not cry, please do not weep,

Look for the signs, they may come when you sleep.

Look for the rainbows high in the sky,

That will be me just passing by.

So on your wings of love, I came to the bridge,

Please don't stop helping all those other kids.

when you sew the coats, for all of the hounds,

Think of me often, with those big boy clowns.

You see I am here again young and free,

I will wait by the bridge for you to join me.

Love and thank you,

Is this Alice's Noni? I am so sorry for her loss. :(

Yes it is. Alice is devastated.


Alice and Ray are such wonderful people. They were my Bill's foster parents. I was as upset as if it were one of my own. Noni was such a sweetheart. I lost my Miss Ellie the same way. It is hard when you don't get the chance to say good-bye. Run free Dear Noni you will be missed>
