Rousty (WAM Roustabout) went to the bridge this A.M. His health continued to deteriorate for unknown reasons after a successful splenectomy. So many tests were done – none revealing the problem.


Rousty was a very special dog to us. He was our first greyhound who caused us to fall in love with the breed and gave us the desire to learn more about dog racing and get involved with adoption and fostering for our local group. He will leave a very big empty space in our heart and our home.


He ‘s forever comfortable & at rest.








Run with the wind sweet boy.

Bill and Clare -


I am so sorry about Rousty. :grouphug :grouphug


If it means anything please take comfort that Rousty was responsible for your falling in love with greyhounds - and in bringing a most special one into my life. Thank you so much for meeting me somewhere godforsaken on the side of I-20 so I could bring Buddy home. He really has saved my life as I was in very bad shape before he came. He is the sweetest most undemanding heart healer and (unofficial) emotional therapy dog ever.


There is no doubt Rousty played a huge part in Buddy coming here, as did you and Clare. In a way Buddy is a bit of Rousty's legacy.


Thank you so very much.

I'm so sorry Rousty had to leave so soon. He was gorgeous and hugely influential.
