P's Catwalk 2/14/2001-10/17/2008


Recommended Posts

Catwalk has left us and we are grieving.


This wonderful dog bounced into our lives on May 17, 2003. She was the first grey we interviewed on that day that treated Boucca the geriatric JRT as a dog not a potential snack. Boucca approved Catwalk, so she came home with us. My first grey. She introduced us to many good friends in the greyhound community, and our love for her encouraged us to adopt two more wonderful greys who are comforting us now.


Catwalk had just been cleared for adoption after 4 months crate rest at GAS recovering from a pelvic fracture incurred in a training run. Imagine my horror when the first thing she did after arriving at her forever home was to take a flying leap onto the kitchen table. How to get her down without jarring her newly healed pelvis? Oh my. She was such a curious energetic 2 year old.


She was a sociable, outgoing and supremely intelligent grey. My houdini dog. She could open crates, doors and drawers, was an inveterate counter-surfer, could work the microwave (when it pings there is food in there), and thought it her duty to investigate visiting ladies' purses for contraband.


Her loving and outgoing personality and love of children made her a wonderful Therapy Dog. She will be missed by so many. I had forgotten how many lives she touched until the condolences came pouring in this week.


Catwalk lived to love and to share her love. She had too short a life. Visceral hemangiosarcoma is indeed the silent killer, so we are just happy that she did not have to suffer long.

She sounds like such an amazing character.

Rest in peace, Catwalk.
