Race In The Wind My Runner

It was three years ago today, a beautiful day in Florida, I woke up, we did our thing, both hounds were perfectly healthy, Sugs was a bit tired that day, so Runner and I headed off to a M&G at Tony Stewart's Tent at Daytona International Speedway for the Busch Series. Runner was his magnificent self, smiling at everyone, and winning people over. At about noon, as he was standing by my side, I was scritching his ears, which he held up, when he went right over at my side with a massive heart attack, ripping a piece of my heart and soul with him as he went. Runner, I so wanted to go right then and there with you. You were my first, my introduction to the greyhounds, the love of my life, my heart dog. Runner, you were a racer first, a retiree second, if you could have your way, you would have raced in the day and come home with me at night. You taught me so much. Everything I do or have done for the greys since you walked into my life has been in honor of you, Runner, for what you brought me. I still miss you so my Big Brindle Bubba Boy, Race Free in the Wind. :beatheart:beatheart:beatheart

Runner, run free forever, man. Your Momma Pat loved you so much ... make that ... will always love you. Thanks for introducing her to greyhounds because she is now a true supporter of your breed. Did you see your jacket on Scooter?? How about that? Pretty cool, huh?

Thank you, I dedicate the song "The Dance" to him, I would not have missed one beat of it, knowing the pain I have since he went to race in the wind.

Oh, how tragic.....I can only imagine how you must have felt at that moment. To lose him so quickly, so unexpected.....it is so painfully hard when they leave us. They really do take a piece of our heart and soul with them. Their elegance, their goofyness, their softness, their unconditional love. I lost my heart dog as well....my big, beautiful Chance....my first grey. He taught me so much...there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about him...I miss him terribly. Know that your not alone....I feel your pain. All we can is hold onto the memories and know that one day we will be reunited with our beautiful grey babies....... :brokenheart

Oh, Pat, I'm so sorry about your Runner. Hearing his story was so heartbreaking but I'm glad I know it because knowing he spent his last few moments with you and hopefully not in any pain since it was so sudden. It must bring you some comfort to know he was giving his all before he passed. :heart You certainly do your part to give on behalf of him with your generosity and warmth. Hugs to you and the rest of your hounds. I'm so sorry again -- I hope you find peace today, as hard as it may be for you. :beatheart

 

Love,

Chrissy, Gino + Speck

Pat I've been thinking about you and Runner today. You are such an advocate for these wonderful babies and a great support to their humans. Thank you.
