mychip1 Posted March 10, 2012 Share Posted March 10, 2012 I am posting this on behalf of our friends, Deb and Al. Just over a month ago, I posted about the loss of their seven year old hound, Allie. It was very unexpected. Sadly, today, I received news that their boy Bert (who just turned 13 last month) left for the bridge. I distincly remember meeting Bert at a greyhound reunion in 2008. He was one of those hounds who had a face that spoke to all who looked at him. People gravitated towards Bert. Deb and Al brought Bert into their lives after he had bounced. He was a senior hound - and what always amazed me was that the more time that he spent with Deb and Al, the younger and healthier he looked. We are all grateful to them for sharing their wonderful boy with us. Bert was so special locally, that he was crowned the first annual "king" at the reunion here in Rhode Island. This first picture is of Bert dressed for a costume class as Mr. Spock. That is my boy Jack with him. I know Jack was waiting at the Bridge today to meet Bert. Here is Bert (with the crown on) with EZ and Jack at the Columbus Day parade. As the "king" he led the greyhound group for the march... Here is Bert with his sister Allie and his parents... And finally, this picture, sadly, I posted in Allie's rememberence thread just a few weeks back...but it says all you need to know about Bert and how good he made everyone in his life feel. Quote Robin, EZ (Tribal Track), JJ (What a Story), Dustin (E's Full House) and our beautiful Jack (Mana Black Jack) and Lily (Chip's Little Miss Lily) both at the BridgeThe WFUBCC honors our beautiful friends at the bridge. Godspeed sweet angels. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
