Dear Sweet Jeffers:


I miss you so much tonight. I know how your body suffered from the ravages of Valley Fever. You fought a good fight and now you can rest comfortably. I hope Maggie and Pete we're among the first to meet you when you arrived at the Bridge. They'll show you the ropes and introduce you to all their friends. As I type this, I swear I can feel your cold wet nose against my leg - - you're signal that it was time for me to turn off the computer and go to bed. You were my velco dog, my big goofy boy. Almost one year ago (9/6/02) you came into our lives. Our time together was cut too short but I wouldn't have traded it for the world. I love you buddy...........run like the wind........

I am so sorry. Thank you for sharing the picture. f_yellow

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.

Jeffrey John can play w/my sweet Pyro up there....he went to the bridge Sept 9, 2003. They look a lot alike actually.


It is hard.

My thoughts are with you.

The spirit of a Greyhound.



I was standing on a hillside

In a field of blowing wheat,

And the spirit of a Greyhound

Was lying at my feet.


He looked at me with kind dark eyes,

Ancient wisdom shining through.

In the essence of his being,

I saw such love there too.


His mind locked upon my heart

As I stood there on that day,

And he told me of this story

About a place so far away.


As I stood upon that hillside

In a field of blowing wheat,

In a twinkling of a second

His spirit left my feet.


His tale put my heart at ease;

All my fears did fade away

About what lay ahead of me

On another distant day.


"I live among God's creatures now

In the heavens of your mind,

So do not grieve for me my friend,

As I am with my kind.


My collar is a rainbow's hue;

My leash is a shooting star.

My boundaries are the Milky Way

Where I sparkle from afar.


There are no pens or kennels here

For I am not confined,

But I'm free to roam God's heavens

Among the Greyhound kind.


I nap the day on a snowy cloud

Gentle breezes rocking me,

And dream the dreams of earthlings,

And how it used to be.


The trees are full of liver treats,

And tennis balls abound,

And milk bones line the walkways

Just waiting to be found.


There is even a ring set up,

The grass all lush and green;

And everyone who gaits around

Becomes the Best of Breed.


For we're all winners in this place;

We have no faults, you see.

And God passes out those ribbons

To each one, even me.


I drink from waters laced with gold,

My world a beauty to behold;

And wise old dogs form my pride

To amble at my very side.


At night I sleep in an angel's arms,

Her wings protecting me,

And moonbeams dance about us

Just as stardust falls on thee.


So when your life on earth is spent

And you stand at Heaven's gate,

Have no fear of loneliness--

For here, you know, I wait."
