We don't know how many of you will understand this post, or even approve of it, but it is something we feel we have to do.


We found out today that Raven, a greyhound that we adopted late in 2000, went to the bridge.


Raven was a beautiful dark brindle girl with a graying face. She was very slender, and long, and she LOVED to be touched. She used to stand for hours, leaning against us just to be touching either me or my husband.


We had Raven in our home for just a short while, when we were forced to rehome her and 4 other greyhounds that we had adopted. NO FLAMES please. Bruce had lost his job, and we tried our best to give the greys the best care possible, but we couldn't afford the vet bills, and we had to sell our home and move. This decision in 2002 was the hardest decision in our lives. We kept two of our greys and found the BEST homes for the other 5. I knew all of the people that the greys went to, through adoption groups, and also personally.


Raven went back to her original foster parents, and lived there until yesterday, she was 12 years old, and she had some health issues for a while, but yesterday while running in the yard she broke a front leg badly, in two places, and her parents made the decision to let her go to the bridge.


So today we got the email with this sad news. We are so very grateful to Kathy & Tim, Raven's parents for caring for her, and being with her when she went to the bridge.


Below are some photos of our Ray-Ray, modeling some A & B Original's for me when she was ours.








Thanks for understanding our need to acknowledge the life of this girl who graciously graced our lives, even for a little while.


Angela & Bruce

I am so sorry. I remember when this happened. :candle

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.
