In Loving Memory
This page is dedicated to the memory of beloved animal companions who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. If you would like to submit a photo and/or small tribute to your greyhound or other pet, please send it to GREATinfo@great-greyhound.org. Memorials will remain on this page for one month. Out of respect for the bereaved family, no tributes will be posted without their express permission.
Our wonderful boy Leroy crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. During a very successful racing career he won 53 of his first 105 races, including 9 in a row at one point. A broken leg ended that phase of his life at 3 Ĺ years old and he moved on to the next where he sired 400 greyhounds in 6 years.
Leroy came to us as a foster a little more than 3 years ago when he was 9 Ĺ years old and we quickly realized that he had found his forever home. Since coming into our home and our hearts, Leroy has helped more than a dozen foster greys transition from their racing career to being wonderful pets. At 12 years and 8 months old, this wonderful, sweet soul let us know it was time to Cross the Bridge.
We will forever love and miss him, knowing that he will meet us at the Bridge one day. Run free, sweet Leroy.

It was such a blessing and honor to be able to adopt our Callieís daughter, Penny, in March 2013. She and her mama loved each other so much and our girls have brought us more joy than we can express. We thought we would have Penny to carry on Callieís legacy after Callie would pass, but as things in life often donít turn out as we expect, we lost Penny just after her 9th birthday to liver disease. Penny, we miss you so much and are at a loss for words.
You were such a wonderful dog and we will miss everything about you. Run free, my sweet Penny girl. This picture is of Penny (on the right) and her mama Callie.

Ace was our beautiful and sweet greyhound that we had the privilege to have adopted. When he first joined our family he was timid and didn't even know how to get up and down stairs. But very soon, he became very comfortable in his new home. He was tolerant of our other pets, our cats and especially Sugar, our Italian greyhound, who misses him dearly and would play and kiss him all the time. He was great around kids too and was loved by all.
Iím glad we were able to bring him into our home and make him part of the family. Ace will be missed.
