Poor Dan. was created by elvee
My wonderful Dan has gone.He had acute kidney failure and nothing could be done,he's been given sleep this morning.He was only 7.

He's been a pleasure to own,a very special dog who will be greatly missed.Some of you may have seen him at the breed show last year,he went everywhere with us.He has done countless 'meet & greets' and fundraising events,promoting greyhounds as pets,a true ambassador.

He 'suffered' the pups,but accepted Foggy was here to stay,here he is refusing to be pushed from his sofa!

Bye Dan.

I'm very sorry to hear your news and being fairly young won't make it any easier.

Poor Dan, I did write on your Facebook wall too, but thought I would post on here too. They are like our family and it is always so hard losing a pet.

Yes they do make wonderful pets, loving and loyal. Rest assured he is in a better place without any suffering.

Thankyou all so much for your comforting thoughts.

We have had an awful weekend of it,but today,as Liza said,we have been having happy thoughts remembering him.

2 years ago,the retired greyhound trust held their first Great Greyhound Gathering.Dan won the trophy for dog with waggiest tail.I had a sausage in my hand ,there were over 20 dogs in the class,when the judge cast his eye over us,I showed Dan the sausage.He went crazy,his tail was whipping his sides in his frenzy.I wish I had it on video.

He's left a huge hole,Thanks again everyone.Now don't talk about it,or I'll be crying again.:silly:

Am so sorrry Lynne - remember the good times,
there are always with us no matter what.

I am with you.

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.
