Please Say A Prayer For The Loss Of My Mother's Beloved Harry

Though not a Greyhound, Mom rescued Harry the shaggy white mutt from the streets of Edisto Island, SC 3 years ago after he was brutaly attacked by pitbulls. Harry spent the remainder of his years as my mother's faithful companion and dearest friend. Thursday morning he died from a massive stroke leaving my mother in a deep state of grief. Please pray for her and for Harry to find his way to the Bridge. When he had known only abuse and horror, Mom came to him as his saving grace, and he spent the happiest time of his life in her gentle care. I have talked to her this evening, and she is not doing well. Please send whatever gebtle thoughts you can and I will let her know that others also feel her grief.


Thank you.


Run free, sweet, gentle Harry.

Please give your Mother my sympathy. Tell her to think about his time with her. She gave him good years. The last of the senior's poem came to my mind when I thought of how wonderful his last years were!




One by one, they pass my cage,

Too old, too worn, too broken, they say.

Way past his time, he can't run and play.

They shake their heads and go on their way.

A little old man, arthritic and sore,

It seems that I am wanted no more.

I once had a home, I once had a bed,

A place that was warm, and where I was fed.

Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail.

Who wants a dog so old and so frail?

My family decided I didn't belong,

I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.

Now I sit in this kennel, where day after day,

The younger dogs are chosen and taken away.

When I had almost come to the end of my rope,

You saw my face, and again I knew hope.

You saw past the grey, and legs wobbly with age,

And felt I deserved life beyond this cage.

You took me home, gave me food and a bed,

And gently stroked my poor tired head.

We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,

You love me so dearly, and make sure I know.

I may have lived most of my life with another,

But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.

And I promise to return all the love I can give,

To you, my dear person, as long as I live.

I may be with you for a week, or for years,

We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.

And when the time comes, that God deems I must leave,

I know you will cry, and your heart, it will grieve.

And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new,

My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.

And I will brag to all who will hear,

Of the person who made my last days so dear.

Oh that is so sad....I'm so sorry. Please give your mother my heartfelt condolences. I know her pain is deep, but maybe she can find comfort in knowing that Harry knew she loved him & her loyalty to him was what kept him going. He will send her a sign letting her know his journey to the bridge was a good one, there are plenty of pups & kitters there waiting for him.

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.
