George Of New England (Driven By Chile)


Recommended Posts

9/9/02 - 8/16/14


On Saturday August 16, with his head on my lap, and an adorable case of ETS, George was set free from his lumbar spinal stenosis and left this world looking right in my eyes as I told him how much I loved him.


He went instantly, ready it seems. George was tired. He had been falling on the stairs, walking on the tops of his paws, and was incontinent. His eyes told me what I needed to know. That it was time.


I spent a week telling him goodbye (after my vet confirmed he was in pain) and spoiling him with hamburgers, hot dogs, and ice cream. And then my vet freed him.


I will miss you forever. And I thank you for your companionship. I hope that I made your retirement enjoyable, although I always felt you would have preferred to return to the track.


Your blog and your Facebook page will live on, as they have a life of their own. You will be remembered by many, and Virtual George will continue to grace the major Greyhound events as long as Laze carries you in the back of her pants.


Be free and whole and healthy and strong again, my handsome boy.


Until we meet again.




Susan,  Hamish,  Mister Bigglesworth and Nikita Stanislav. Missing Ming, George, and Buck

Hope you're teaching blogging classes up there, George. That picture of you makes me smile--so very handsome. You will be loved and remembered always.

I am so very sorry to hear this, Susan. My thoughts are with you. I loved seeing pictures of George and Mr. B. What a pair! I hope you'll still post some of those old favorites for us from time to time.

I'm so very sorry... as others have said, he'll be much missed here, and I'll never forget 'chikken arms'... I also hope Mr. Bigglesworth will be OK without his pal.


Hugs to you... George is a GT favorite (and will remain so...)


Run free of pain, George!

Susan, I'm so sorry it was George's time to leave you. He had such a beautiful face & seemed like a gentle soul. Even with all his whirled fame. :star He leaves a big George-shaped gap for his fan club, not to mention for you, Mr. B & dear Ming. Godspeed George! f_yellow
