Diamond was a big, beautiful black & white boy. He was smart, strong and extremely dominant. All the regular volunteers loved him. Except for 2 brief stays at foster homes, he lived at the GPS kennel from his retirement in 1997 until the end of last week. He was more than a handful, and could only be placed in a home with an experienced greyhound person. At the kennel he was only turned out with a dominant female, as he couldn't be trusted to run in a pack or with other males. He was a hard case, and it looked as though he'd never find a home.


Last week we got the news that Diamond had finally found a home! It was cause for celebration, and we all hoped that he would settle in and be happy in his new home.


This morning the group heard from his new owner. Yesterday Diamond bloated, and had to be put down. Everyone who knew him is devastated. What a sad ending. I hope that his last days were happy ones, and that he enjoyed his brief life in his new home.


Run free Diamond.

I'm so sorry. :grouphug


What a handsome boy Diamond was. That picture of him looks almost exactly like my sweet boy Fletcher. Maybe they can run free together at the Bridge. :f_red
