Bounty Boon


Recommended Posts

Bounty Boon, where should I begin. He was brought to my house as a foster who was recently healed from a broken hock and listed at being 7 years old and was a BIG boy. I couldn't believe no one was interested in him because he was such a beautiful boy and after he was here for about 4 weeks I had to keep him. He was the sweetest, loving boy I had ever known. My first greyhound was always in charge even with some serious health issues and Bounty never bothered Rascal. He was confident but not arrogant. He was so active I couldn't believe he was seven. And he wasn't, he was four. He had some very impressive times in his short career at Bluff's Run. He never ceased to make me laugh and feel loved. He was a tremendous confidence booster to our friend Lynn's shy Bailey. It was the one dog he loved to run with.


He loved everyone...others dogs, cats, especially people. He was actually a retriever in a greyhound body. His greatest love was his frisbee. He could get way off the ground and grab it in midair. It was magnificient to watch and my regret is that I never got a good action shot of him. He loved his little sisters and even didn't mind when Pixie joined us and insisted on snuggling with him. She was so loving with him these last few days.


I can't believe you are gone so quickly my sweet, sweet boy. I will never forget your beautiful face and beautiful heart. The girls and I miss you terribly already. You were the best.

Donna...I wish there were words to heal your heart right now but there are none. I'm so very sorry that you had to go through this so soon with Bounty. It's not fair...we know that...it's just miserable. You were a wonderful mom to Bounty, and he was blessed to have you. Please know that we are all thinking of you. My heart is breaking with yours. I'm so very sorry. :grouphug



Goodbye Bounty. We will miss you. :cry1

I'm so sorry donna :cry1 I will never forget him either. I was lucky enough to see him play with his frisbee in his back yard and will always have those memories. He truly was a lover, he loved his sister Mollie with all his heart and Maj and Black Jack loved when he came to visit.


My heart aches and my stomach is in knots right now :sad1 I wish there was something I could do or say to make you feel better :grouphug If you need ANYTHING, just let me know. I'm just a phone call and a 2 hour drive away :grouphug


Run free sweet Bounty Boon :hope I'm sure your brother Rascal was happy to see you again. Take good care of each other.

I am so sorry. :candle:grouphug

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.
