Sally - Now Barking At The Bridge


Recommended Posts

We weren't looking to adopt another greyhound but I came across this picture on a rescue website




and within 10 days, she was home.


This picture, taken on the day we went to collect her (with angel Maddison, Mokka & Darcy) should have given us an indication of the way things were going to be...







She went to various fun dog shows and won some rosettes (not that she needed rosettes for us - or her - to know she was special)











She shouted quite a lot at shows (as well as at home) :rolleyes:






And she very much enjoyed meeting up with her 'bee-luvid', roar-ee (Rory). This was their first meeting






and this is when he prow-powz'd (proposed)







and Sally shouted it from the rooftops







She was a bit puzzled by the Royal Wedding (Charles & Camilla)







Sally liked her treats







and enjoyed her birthday parties (if we didn't make her wear a hat)







She loved her walkies (as long as all strange dogs remained farrrrrrrrrrrr away)






And she made us laugh because much to her horror, pups always gravitated towards her and wanted to be close to her (but not tooooo close, as they learned pretty quickly)










She had her own settee and she liked to lay on something soft and fleecy (perish the thought that she may have to snooze on actual leather) and if the blanket got ruffled up, she would stand and bark at it until a human came and flattened it for her :lol


She had a lot of funny, Sally Ways and she's left a big hole. We're sorry she's gone and we shall miss her greatly but she's left a whole lifetimes-worth of funny memories, packed into the three and half years we shared with her :beatheart

Bev thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing Sally with us over the years. She was always a good girl I bet! I'm sorry she's gone, but I bet Maddison is happy to see her again.
