We lost our Dizzy 3 years ago which was a shock after only having him for 6 years. On 10 June, a few weeks back, we also lost our beautiful Lily. There'll never be another's like her. She started life as a very nervous reject from the racing industry. She was retired at 6 mths and had bitten someone so was not your model pet hound. We gave her space and built up a relationship of mutual respect and she became the most obedient, intelligent, communicative greyhound ever. I still love her so much and it breaks my heart that my love for her stops dead and sits in my chest and has nowhere to go. It was a privilege to know Lily. Her profile and modelling helped raise a few thousand pounds for charity and money was donated to various sighthound rescue centres. In saving Lily she saved us for 9 yrs. I didn't expect Lily to go downhill so quickly. She missed her last beach holiday by days. I imagined her going on to age 15 but she was only 10 when she developed an aggressive heart tumour.
