Remembering Rocky


Recommended Posts

I usually do not post in this part of Greytalk becuase I cry so hard. My DH and I had the wonderful privalege of greysitting 2 of our freinds greyhounds. Rocky and Kai. (Kai happened to be our first foster so this was exciting). Our freind had to have surgery and during the surgery we found out Rocky had cancer. It had progressed to beyond any medical help and he would need to be put to sleep. We met Rocky on Tuesday August 26th and he went to the Rainbow Bridge Tuesday September 5th. In the short time we knew him we fell so in love with him. He had been neglected for nine years and was rescued by GPA. He came to my friend in Febuary and she thought she would have several years with him, sadly only a few short months. Our vet came to her home and she was kind enough to let us be there when he went to the Rainbow Bridge. He went peacefully and his big brother Kai and little sister Boo were there to say goodbye. Kai was so sweet. When Rocky breathed his last breath Kai bowed his head as far down as possible and sighed. I know in my heart that Boo and Kai understood. Rocky will always be in our hearts. Rest easy and run free with all your freinds. We will see you again someday.

Rest in peace Rocky.



When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

I am so sorry that Rocky did not have more time to live in a home where he was so loved. My deepest sympathy to those who loved him. He looked like such a gentle soul.

I am so sorry. :candle Godspeed Rocky, run with all the angels. :gh_run

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.
