It is with a very heavy heart that I share the news that Mr. Merlin has joined Little Kasie Lynne, Tiana and Willy-bear across the Bridge today. What was first thought to be a simple leg fracture and clean X-rays last night turned out to be our worst fears this morning, and we had to let him go. He was my heart, my reason for living, my "HunkaHunkaburninglove", my Bayboo.
I still cannot write Willy-Bear's memorial post...he passed away in October and it is still too painful to touch. But Merlin, my Merlin. I could fill a book with stories about Merlin right now. He simply made me so happy. He was so full of life and joy, and just wanted everyone to love him. And everyone did. You simply could not help but love Merlin.
He loved nothing more than to steal the slippers off my feet, lie on top of me watching movies (snoring), and begging for butt scratches, belly rubs, and ear rubs. He got anything he ever wanted. I got way more in return from him, and I am forever grateful. He reminded me that life was to be enjoyed, to be loved, to be smiled at...no matter what.
Mamma Rio and Mirage are the only 2 original Quints remaining now. I suspect they will not be long in joining their pack. And then, well, watch out, because then RainbowLand will never be the same!
(Photobucket is not working for me, so this post does not have any pictures. I am NOT impressed. He was such a beautiful big dark brindle boy)
I love you, Bayboo....when we meet again, I promise I will bring bags full of Mommy's slippers, all for you.

echandler: Hello, is anyone in the London are interested in organizing a greyhound only play date? I find it hard to meet fellow greyhound owners in the area and my 2 girls love to play with other hounds

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?

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

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!
