So sorry Jen....

Most of you have probably wandered over to my sister's blog, Never Say Never Greyhounds, before...

I'm just so sad for her:-( I don't even know what to say. Change happens so fast, one day they are fine and the next they aren't.

Travis is her super star greyhound who has won countless agility titles and more. Why is it that the good ones seem to go "young". I know 10+ isn't young, but I still feel damn cheated that I lost my Spooky at 11 years and 3 months:-( Travis has been diagnosed with liver disease.
Why does it seem like the "bounces" (greyhounds that are returned by their heartless, stupid owners at age 8 and up seem to hang on forever?
Travis' story is a facinating one... click here to read it.

I have been told many times that the price of love is the grief we feel when it's gone and that is so true.

Thanks for giving Travis some props on your blog. He's just such a sweet, amazing boy. Can't wait to pick him up tomorrow.

i think it's one of life's big injustices: pets going before we do. that's powerful love, this pet love.

lots of cuddling.
