Robin, I'm so sorry to hear this.

 

You gave Loca a home when nobody else would give her a chance, and for that you are to be commended.

 

I was glad to have met her (and you) a few years ago.

 

She's dragging her liquor bottle across the bridge (does everybody remember that story ? :wub: ) and is probably scheming mischief with Twiggy right now.

Chris, I know you loved Loca. Do you remember when she broke into your suitcase and ate all of poor Donovan's cookies? :heart

Truly the end of an era. I'm not on Greytalk much these days after losing Bugsy, but Loca was such a part of my introduction to the greyhound community, just knowing her through your posts here on GT. She's a genuine celebrity and will never be forgotten.

Oh, no. Robin, I just read this today - my deepest heartfelt condolences. I was fortunate to meet Loca on a couple of occasions - she was a FIREBRAND of the finest sort. She will be missed, very much. Many hugs.

Oh, I remember this and so much more. The majority of my memories of Dewey include Loca-Loca-Loca.

Stuffie stealer of the group, her and Roady getting diva'd up and us laughing ourselves silly over dressing

them like dolls. Roady and I were honored that Loca would share our bed -- laying like the diva she was

at the foot of the bed, heartbreakingly beautiful. Doing the demonstrations at Claudia's talks.... :lol

 

Laughter through the tears, and the tears are flowing. She will forever be remembered and in my heart,

although my heart is very heavy today after reading this.

 

I'm so sorry for your loss Robin. And Phene too, he must really feel the pain of it as well.

 

I will whisper her name at all blessings and treasure the lovely memories of her glorious Joie de vivre forever.

I just saw this too. :f_white Like so many, I enjoyed the tales of Loca. She will be greatly missed.

Just thinking about you guys tonight, and remembering Loca and Sunscreen Man snuggling on the bed together when we were visiting. Sigh...
