In case you've ever questioned the existence of a Rainbow Bridge as you coped with a broken heart, this may help you to know:
We took our lovely Hachiko (and a heart-shaped toy and a handful of her favourite cookies) to the vet yesterday to have her cremated. Although she died the previous day, I think she stayed with us as we sat vigil with her body all night, petted her, and talked about our memories and stories. I think she came with us for the final trip to the vet. Before they took her away from us, we had a few last moments, and all I could do was cry. My wife, however, gave instructions to Hachiko, who always seemed to understand what we told her:
"When you reach the Rainbow Bridge safely, please send me a sign."
Ten hours later, there was a big, bright rainbow in the sky here in Ottawa.
It's real. And now we all know how long it takes to get there.

What a beautiful, lovely thing. We, too have had signs from our beloved pets when they went over the Rainbow, and it is amazing to receive them. Hugs to both of you. Janette and the Quints

My wife got her rainbow message, and my message from Hachiko came one day later. At the airport, I grabbed the same drink I always do at home, and looked at the bottle as I walked to the departure gate.
"Missing you," it said. It broke my heart and filled it up at the same time. What an incredibly thoughtful girl.

adoragrey: That is a great idea!!! I have a 4 yr old greyt boy who also loves to play. And I know there are other greyt parents who would also enjoy it. Please post the date here and I will let you know if I can attend.

lovehounds: Hi! I am new here but over the past year have been reading and viewing everything I can find about greyhounds. Also enjoy seeing people's posts/photos of their beautiful dogs. I am recovering from surgery and once I am well I want very much to adopt! ☺💖

misscarlotta: So happy to see new pups. Wish I could take 1 or more, but I have to keep working 14 hours a day to support my adult children.

pengoowin: I am a newbie when it comes to the breed, are greys good with disabled adults. Are they skittish with wheelchairs?
May 27, 2017 10:02:51 GMT -5
Heather (& KC): Hi pengoowin! It truly depends on the dog and Heather Main would help you identify the right dog for you. I have seen some with their human in a wheelchair. 🙂

padeschamps: I am new here, trying to absorb as much info as possible to see if a greyhound would be right for our family. I've done the puppy phase with the doggies I now own. And I am so interested in the rescue of older dogs to find their new forever homes.

padeschamps: What I am having a hard time finding out, is the cost for the adoption of a greyhound. And what screening process do you have to go through. And how long is the adoption process generally
Aug 6, 2017 1:19:33 GMT -5
Heather (& KC): Hi Padeschamps! Welcome. Contact Heather Main. Her email and phone number are at the top of this board! These dogs aren't rescues but retired racers who are ready to start home life! Good luck!
