Chelsie Is At The Bridge.


Recommended Posts

Chelsie was a brood bitch until 5 years ago when Donna Strawbridge got her from an Oklahoma farm and flew her to Stillwater, NY, where she was adopted by Liz Hurd, a founder of Fastrack Greyhound Adoption and a president of Greyhound Rescue of NY. Liz was diagnosed with colon cancer two years ago and passed away last March.


Chelsie then was adopted by Linda H and moved to New Hampshire last March. Last Saturday was the annual picnic for the Pro-Grey Alliance, which was held in Lancaster, PA this year. Linda drove down from NH with Chelsie and Willie (3 yo), Donna flew in from Chicago, and I drove down from LI. We all had a nice reunion. Chelsie recognized us and seemed in perfect health and good spirits. She had fun meeting the other 15 hounds there and went for a swim in a pool.


Linda drove back to NH, and on Tuesday Chelsie broke a leg. The x-rays showed a hairline fracture but there was also massive osteosarcoma which was also visible on chest x-rays in her lungs. Chelsie left us for the bridge last night. She was 12 years old. I will try to post a photo in the cute & funny section.


Godspeed sweet girl.
