When you lose a beloved hound it is very hard to imagine life without your companion. When our first Grey Don crossed rainbow bridge in August 2014 it was a big blow. It can take a long time for the initial pain to subside but we will always remember the happy times we enjoyed with him before illness took him away from us
It took us 3 months before we decided that our other hound Ele would be better if she had a new companion. Although she coped well on her own having probably become an only dog for the first time in her life we occasionally could see her looking round wondering where her friend had gone!
It was time to go to Daybreaks and meet the hounds and see what if anything would come of it. When Ele met Paddy for the first time she loved him straight away. We knew it had to her choice,a grey she could be comfortable with and not be dominant. Paddy was the perfect choice and even better for us she had chosen a black boy…the best! we were happy all round. We think it was all meant to be and if Paddy and Ele could talk I’m sure they would say thank you. I also think Don will be looking down, pleased we were able to adopt another greyhound to keep Ele company.
