Several weeks ago I was contacted about a photo I had taken of a senior greyhound during GIG on Saturday. Jasmine was her name. She fell ill later and died the following day.

Her owner was told of these pictures of her, and was very thankful that they were taken.

I didn't know what to say when I found out about her passing. She was just here -- and now she's not.

One week ago today I saw a Facebook posting from the Greyhound adoption group we've adopted all our hounds and learned by Pie Sky (profiled in this post) had passed that day due to a possible heart attack. She was just five years old.

I had thought it might have made an interesting picture if I was able to have both Katie and Pie pose side-by-side. Unfortunately I'll never get that chance.

Rest in peace, Jasmine and Pie.


  1. So sad. My sympathy to Jasmine and Pie's families. Run free girls .....

  2. You beautifully captured these lovely girls. Rest in peace, Jasmine & Pie.

  3. Steve, I am so thankful that you were able to photograph my Sadie. So sad about those beauties.

  4. My sympathies to those who loved them! I'm so glad that you were able to take those beautiful pictures of them while they were still alive.
