I'm so sorry for yet another loss this year. I still remember when you introduced us to Graham. I hope you find comfort in knowing that you gave him the best life any grey could ask for.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." -- Unknown

He was indeed a Hansum Debbil - and, thanks to you, a happy one, too. Thank you for sharing his journey. I'm very sorry for your loss.


Run free, Graham.

I am so very sorry to hear that Graham has gone to the Bridge.


I followed all his stories on the GRA forums back in 2010, before we adopted Nixon.

Remember the good times .... One day they will make you smile.

He was a Good Dog who found his Home. He learned how to love and how to dance - how lucky you both were to have found each other! Your Token Boy - what a huge hole he leaves. I'm so sorry Suzanne... :bighug

Thank you for sharing Graham's incredible story. You were his human angel - thank you for playing your part so well, for giving him the loving forever home he so deserved and for giving him his space to be him. I'm so sorry for your loss. RIP Graham.

I am so sorry. How lucky that Graham found his way to you where he was allowed to be the boy he could be. What a loving tribute you wrote for your special boy.

Your lovely tribute left me in tears, and I felt like I really knew your boy. He was SO much like my Buster, in looks, the multiple bounces, the worried countenance, even similar in the end. How well you understood him---knowing that still waters run deep, and there were joyful layers just waiting to be peeled away by someone who loved him unconditionally. What better example than his exuberant "happy dance". This was a dog who was precisely where he was meant to be.

I'm so sorry you lost your precious Graham.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I thought his name sounded familiar as I was watching my Wink race at Hinsdale back then. He raced with my Wink, (she beat him here http://www.greyhound-data.com/d?r=1025129) It looks like they were both a couple of workhorses there :)

He was a lucky boy to have found such a loving home with you. Miss Wink says "Godspeed old comrade"

I watched him slowly adjust to life with his girlie pack and smiled every time another toe peeked out. He ended his days knowing what is was to love and be loved, and while I am so sorry he could not stay longer, I am so very glad he learned about love with you.


Godspeed Graham

Graham had a very full life and was, indeed, pretty. Your tribute was wonderful and I feel like I know him. You were a fabulous, sensitive dog mom to him, and I'm thrilled that he got to spend his last years with you. I'm so very, very sorry for your loss. :grouphug
