In the spring of 1999 we were ready to adopt our second greyhound. We asked Denise to give us a project dog. She had just gotten in a load of dogs and one of them was a mess. She was a brindle female who was terrified, scraggly, and smelled horrible....just what we were looking for. We took her home and began her rehabilitation. After several trips to the vet, the mother of all baths, and plenty of TLC, she became the best dog we could ever have hoped for. She grew into the friendliest, most affectionate, and loyal dog we could imagine. For ten years she has been our faithful companion and our best friend. She taught us never to judge a dog by the cover. The worst one in the yard may actually turn out to be the best one. It took a long time, but eventually she even became a good ambassador dog, representing the breed at many meet and greets. Recently she became very ill from complications related to her age. Yesterday we had to let her go. We are heartbroken, but trying to stay positive. She lived a full, happy life as a member of our family and we are grateful for all the years she was with us. We love you Blair, we miss you, and we will never forget you. Rest in peace.
