9/30/2004 - 6/18/2016My beautiful, sweet baby boy, Tyger, will always live in my heart. His soul forever apart of my own. He was a wonderful brother to his siblings. His litter mate brother misses him greatly but knows he is with their sister playing beyond the rainbow bridge.Elizabeth GeorgeChapel Hill, North CarolinaJuly 17, 2016
2/1/2001 - 7/12/2016Jim our little girl...yes girl! She was so big and fluffy when we first met we thought it was a boy, named him Jim only to find out HE was a SHE!! She was with us for 15 loving years! Never outside but she loved to watch the birds in the morning and bathe in the afternoon sun. She was full of life and very frisky as a young adult but in her older years she slowed down and was plagued with thyroid issues and became blind in one eye but she did not allow that to get her down, she continued to live her life like there was nothing admirable! She was our 1 and only baby and there will forever be a hole in our heart! But we know that someday we will see her again! We love you and miss you our little "monkey"

Cadence Frances
8/14/1999 - 7/14/2016Cadence, you no longer sleep in my lap or in my bed. Now you have burrowed into a little place to sleep in my heart. When you occasionally wake, I will take time to nourish your spirit and take a walk through our memories together. I thank God for your little spirit and for all the love and loyalty and kisses that you gave me.Vincent MelgarejoHouston, TexasJuly 16, 2016

7/14/2016Chester, you were my first unconditional love in adulthood. You taught me that unconditional love is giving your best at all times. Best does not mean perfect. It means what you could give in that moment, at that time. You were my little boy. My best friend. My strength. My companion. My partner. My home. Of all the states we lived in and journeys we took together, wherever you were, you became my home. We were a team. You got me through those sleepless all-nighters in law school. Sitting in my lap, purring away, staying awake with me. You got me through the toxic relationship. You soothed me through the loss of my close friend. We found a cozy new home together here in Houston--a fresh start from all the other starts. I felt my life took off and every time I came back from the stress of life outside our home, I was always met by you at the door, rubbing up against my legs, greeting me. I would sit on the couch and you would cuddle into my neck and purr up a storm. You would nuzzle your nose into my hand and say "Mommy. I'm here. Be here with me." That white noise of life didn't matter much. You were that reminder. Always. In the last two years, I would leave for work everyday and get into my little car, and I would say to God, "Thank you, God, for my life." Thank you for my health. My parents' health. I have my great job, my cute little car, my cozy little home, I have my loving boyfriend (who got me through this today), and I have Chester. You have always been a huge part of my blessings. I hope you felt my love for you. I did my very best. You deserved the very best. A once in a lifetime soul crossed paths with me. I am so very lucky. With love and chin rubs and cuddles one last time, you went to bed on your favorite blanket in my lap, with Wim telling you how loved you are, for the most yummy, comfortable, restful nap. And I will be forever grateful that you told me when the time was right. Thank you, God, for my life. Thank you for Mr. Chester Loon Totman. Thank you, God, for Chester.Elizabeth TotmanHouston, TexasJuly 15, 2016
Miss o
11/28/2010 - 7/13/2016Miss O was an exceptional dog from day one, and my best friend. We only had her for one year, but in that year, she lived like she had never lived before, and loved us to no end. She changed our lives forever. We adopted Miss O at the age of 4 1/2 from a greyhound rescue group. She was the sweetes and the most well behaved dog I have ever owned. She became my walking buddy. Sadly she lost her battle with lymphoma and left us way too soon. She will be forever missed and always loved. May you always run free Miss O.Yvonne SmithPembroke Pines, FloridaJuly 15, 2016

Sunshine Daydream
9/6/2001 - 7/9/2016Dear Sunshine Daydream,

You will be forever in our hearts. We were the luckiest family to be together for almost 15 years and you brought us love and happiness for every minute you were with us. Although our hearts ache with the loss of you, the memories you left us will sustain us. Thank you for loving us.

So my darling Sunshine, remember:

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand, if your cup be empty
If your cup is full, may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go, no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

Love Always, Mommy

Marble Ridge
4/9/2004 - 7/9/2016On Saturday July 9th, 2016 we had to say goodbye to our dear Marble Ridge, whom we adopted from Pocono Greyhound Adoption in 2007. And yes, that was his racing name and a perfect name for him. Just a few things I would like to share about Marble. I remember the day we went to see him in the Poconos and everyone from the Pocono Greyhound Adoption Group were so kind. There is where we first met Suzanne Ewing, Marble's foster Mom and her husband Scott. I remember having a conversation over the phone with Craig Shide concerning Marble possibly having sleep aggression issues. We questioned if we really wanted to adopt him. We thank God that we decided to adopt him. He was a perfect boy, and no sleep aggression. I remember the day he was delivered to us by Kim Shide and Craig Shide. It was a cold February day. I remember watching out the window like a kid on Christmas, waiting to see when they arrived. And across the street came Craig, with Kim handling skinny, young, stunning Marble Ridge. While he was exploring the downstairs, our resident cat in charge Cassie, sucker punched Marble a few times in the face. Cassie grew to love Marble! I remember that day when the telephone rang for the first time since he was here and he cocked his head and his scooby-do ears looking like what the heck is that?? He was always a true gentleman, even after our bossy Sadie came, our female grey. They were ok with each other's company. There were road trips. We attended many Pocono Greyhound Annual Picnics. We traveled to Western PA, up to Erie and took Route 6 back to Eastern PA. We travelled to the Adirondacks, where Marble and Sadie escaped from the hotel room and zoomed a total of a block or two, they finally stopped at a dead end of a parking lot. Where thankfully a lady was petting them until we "ran" over to retrieve them. Imagine running after them and a few guys were on a balcony and I was like, hey did you see two greyhounds run through here?? Lol, funny now, but not then. Lost in the woods of the Adirondacks would not be good!! We travelled to Delaware for Greyhounds Reach the Beach in the Spring. That was a fun time! It was Marble's birthday and he got a hat to wear at the ice cream social. Then a few years ago he got sick. We almost thought we were going to lose him. They had to carry him in on a stretcher. We thought he was having seizures or a stroke. A day or two in the emergency hospital and a couple days being a guest at the Regular Vets office during the day, he was home. Slowly walking and weak, it took him months to really recover. We think he had an inner ear problem. After that, we treasured every day with him not knowing when or if it would happen again. Maybe a year or so ago, he started urinating in the house, something he only did once or twice in all the time we had him until then. He was such a good boy. He had early kidney disease. He tried, but he urinated more. Then about two weeks ago he had a bloody nose. A dog with a bloody nose was not fun to get to the Emergency Vet, but we did it. He had extremely high blood pressure that they believe was a result from his kidney issue. That was the beginning of the end. He started not eating and having an upset tummy. Basically his kidneys were failing. And then the day came for us to say good bye. It seems unreal yet really. But I am glad we could say good bye at home where he was comfortable. We will never forget you Marble Ridge! And thank you to all who had a hand in bringing him to us, from Florida (Judy Shamp) to Pennsylvania!!!!!!!Christine SweigertReading, PennsylvaniaJuly 14, 2016
