In Memory of Asia Blue
Asia Blue Asia Blue
Asia Blue came to us 7 years ago, on Christmas Eve. Right away, she let everyone know who the boss of the house was. She ran like the wind on her 3 strong legs and kept up with her 4 legged brother. I remember when I chose her from the picture on the website; my husband said, "what do we need with a 3 legged dog." He immediately fell in love with her. She crossed over the bridge just short of her 12th birthday.
Bill and Gail Mayes

In Memory of Maly
Maly I can not express the joy that Maly brought to us and how much I'll miss her soft face, snotty looks, loving nose and regal manner. Maly knew that she was the chosen one in the house. Even though she has been fragile these past few months she maintained her dignity. Even last night her ears were up and she sat surveying her domain from her bed with bright eyes. Mary matched us up perfectly. Take care of her Mary. I know that you're taking care of all our greyt dogs. #687
Nancy and David Hein

In Memory of Asia
Asia Gail and Bill, you gave Asia a loving home life. We may have felt pity for her, at first, until she raced around the back yard on three legs! The girl had spunk and she was a sweetheart. She won all of our hearts.

In Memory of Jay (J. R. Episode) Saleh
Jay had the sweetest heart. He was a wonderful ambassadog for our Tyler GU Meet & Greets. He single handedly convinced many of the joy of being owned by a Greyhound. Jay is sorely missed by his family and numerous friends. Run pain free sweet boy.

In Memory of June
June June was a beautiful brindle Greyhound girl belonging to Joyce and Don Kessel. She crossed over the bridge at age 12. Her early life was uncertain, as she was abandoned at a veterinary clinic around age 6. After a brief foster period, she went to a very happy home with Joyce and Don. She was loved by all and her shy sweet spirit will never be forgotten. Run free, gentle Junebug.

In Memory of Nikki
Nikki Nikki went to the Rainbow Bridge on Friday, June 13, 2014, at the age of 5 years old. Nikki (formerly Neeka) was one of the FWACC 28 (see the Special needs Hounds tab, FWACC Rescue of the 28) that came to me as a foster in July 2010. Nikki was a shy reserved girl that was very ill and after three (3) months of getting healthy she was adopted by my sister, brother-in-law (Kerri and Russel Trower) and nieces into their home. Nikki was like Goldilocks checking out the beds and knocking off all of the pillows until she found a bed that was “just right.” Nikki loved to “sun” herself outside and would love to lie in the grass. Nikki had cancer and when she went to the Rainbow Bridge she was surrounded by her family as she made her way across the bridge. Nikki will be missed but she is no longer in pain and is waiting patiently for her family.
With love, Kelly Wells and Merlin

In Memory of Teak
Teak
Teak was one of those seniors that only one who has experienced a senior could appreciate. We adopted her in May 2013 from Mary McAnally who had fostered her for over a year. She turned 13 yr old Oct 2013 and just kept going and going. She still had a pep in her step and loved like no other could till the very end. In her youth, Teak ran 50 races, so we are sure she is now racing again and loving every lap. May she and Mary have many chats again. Run free, sweet girl, and know we loved you every minute you were with us.
Ricky Polcer and ElleMae

In Memory of Shyla
Shyla
Shyla raced unexpectedly on 23 Jan to the Rainbow Bridge at only 6 yr old, leaving behind a fast growing rear leg cancer. Shyla was one of the FWAC 28 (see the Special needs Hounds tab, FWACC Rescue of the 28) that came to me as a medical foster. She had a hard time overcoming all the obstacles in her way, but finally rallied and became the sweetest little girl with a big smile and always "answered" the phone with a whopping "ahroooo". She helped us foster many greyts, teaching them to be the best they could be in their forever homes. Shyla was also the biggest "poster girl" at the Tyler M&G every month, greeting potential owners with lots of smiles. Shyla will be missed but we know she will be running without pain and will wait for us patiently.

In Memory of Ridley Mayes
Ridley Ridley
Way too soon, Ridley left us for the Rainbow Bridge. I wasn't ready to let him go and it was the hardest thing I've ever done. He always gave me the sweetest hugs in the mornings. Friends have told me how lucky he was to have us, but I know it was the other way around. We were the lucky ones. Ridley was our first greyhound, but surely won't be our last. Rest peacefully Sweet Ridley. I miss you.
Mom and Dad Mayes

In Memory of Ridley Mayes
Ridley was a gentle sweet spirit. He served as a certified Therapet and was a great ambasadog for GU, attending countless Meet n Greets. He will be greatly missed by friends & family. Run free, "Ridles"; and may there be lots of coconut pies for you at the rainbow bridge.

She came to us as a senior in September 2009 and joined our two other rescues from Greyhounds Unlimited. We are so glad she stayed with our family to meet our daughter Grey and give her special greyhound kisses. We will miss you, sweet girl, and will meet you on the bridge someday.

In Memory of Boomer aka Boomtown Episode, 20 Apr 2002-23 Nov 2013
Boomer came to me as a foster boy because his owner went to an assisted living facility. He was truly a wonderful, easy going senior boy that just loved life. He was adopted by Dean & Laurie Moore (and family) in Abilene TX and provided so much love to them. He was a bouncy senior, loving his walks and his greyhound brother, Fly. They made such a handsome pair on their daily walks. He is truly missed by all, but enjoying his freedom to run and play without pain.

In Memory of our Lovely Nattie (a/k/a Natasha).
We had the joy of Nattie since she was a puppy and right from the start she was a little spitfire. If she had ever raced, she would have won millions as she was the fastest Grey we have ever had and she truly loved to out run every other dog around. Our hearts were broken when she was diagnosed with cancer, and we had to let her rest just short of her 13th birthday.

In Memory of Magnolia
Magnolia
Magnolia was adopted from GU in 2002 and we lost her today. She was a sweet dog that was gentle and quiet. She began her life with us as a very shy dog and then came out of her shell to play with toys and run around our backyard. She was 13 years old. She will be missed by me and my husband dearly.

In memory of Factor
Factor
Factor crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 28 May after a very short illness. Factor came to us as a foster boy in Mar 2011 after his daddy, Bill Madden, died. We formally adopted him in May 2011; he grieved for his daddy for almost a full year. Although he was always a happy boy, he finally "came around" and was a loving, sweet boy that was so different from his arrival. He lived alone with Bill from Jul 2005 until his death and they were very close. He is now back with Bill, running free with no pain and we are sure he's happy to be with his daddy. Our "stop" was but an interval in his life and we were so very honored to have him with us. Run free sweet boy and know you are missed by your sisters and mom.
Ricky Polcer, ElleMae and Shyla

In memory of Turbo
Turbo
On Friday, April 12, at the old age of 14 1/2, Turbo crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Beyond the Rainbow came to our home, and Turbo was surrounded by the entire family as he made his way across the bridge.
Turbo was our "boy" for almost 13 years and we will always cherish our memories with this special boy. It is time to go run and play with Blueline now, and we will see you again some day, our sweet, sweet boy.
We will always love you, Turbo!
Love, Clay and Stephanie Mullin, Rider, Fairbanks, and Mozambique

Jet was a sweet boy who was adopted at 6. He was a return from an elder couple who could no longer keep him. He settled in with Mary and Allen and was greatly loved! He loved having his feet rubbed. He is now running free with Mayor and Elwin. Our deepest condolences go to the Middletons. May you have happy memories of your beautiful black shiny boy.

In Memory of Dirk Robarge
My husband and I adopted our first greyhound from your organization 3 years ago. I've always wanted a greyhound since I was little. We named him Dirk after our favorite Mavericks player. We fell in love with him instantly. Dirk immediately settled into our house. We left him sleep on our couches and bed (He was spoiled :-) ). Greyhounds are an amazing breed. Dirk taught me so much. Sadly, we lost our precious boy on 01/01/13 due to Leptospirosis. Be at peace Dirk.

After this rough start, she had a life of smooth sailing, running in the huge beautiful field at the Arrick's home. This sweet brindle girl will be missed by all.

In Memory of Ginger
Ginger
My "first" greyhound. I learned so much from you and got so much in return. Your endless patience with the fosters (and me) was inspirational. You were always the sweet girl that would run through the house with her squeaky toys . I had always hoped you would pick them up - but I guess that was my job.
Carole Clark
