Jack The love for all living creatures is the noblest attribute of man.

Charles Darwin

We adopted Jack in December, 1997 and enjoyed him for 4 years until he was taken from us at 7 years of age, April, 2002. He was our first Greyhound and taught us about unconditional Greyhound love. He was so beautiful that he was responsible for many adoptions of retired racers through the Meet and Greets that we ran for 6 years. We were very successful at finding forever homes. Many people would say, "we want that one" pointing to our Jack. He was a bit shy, but yet, full of mischief as well. His personality blossomed as a rosebud through the years and we enjoyed seeing his lovely and sweet personality evolve. He will never be forgotten and we'll always miss him.------Marion and Bernie.
If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.

Our lovely Lady died 4 September 2005. Marilyn & John.

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ...
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawn and say "goodnight,
I'll see you in the morning." And when the time is right.---

Then you will cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out ... then come home to be with me.
