Greyhounds, photography, and mixing the two together...
I was so incredibly sad to read the news on Facebook. Sadie was a very special girl. Our hearts go out to you! We'll miss your beautiful pictures of her.
thanks, carrie. her personality was so unlike our other three. she had no problem going up to strangers and sniffing them several times over. and definitely had no problem with resting her head on the backs of greyhounds that she had just met (and, who in turn, never snarked at her for doing so!). i hadn't been interested in fostering, much less adopting, a black grey — even when we saw her in a kennel off to the side: alone, wagging her tail, and whining for attention near the end of her retirement day. but the rest is history.it was because of her and her "crackerdog" antics that i named my photo business after her. i have much that i owe her that i cannot repay. she was my heart dog.
I still can't believe it, as I know you and your family are still in shock as well. These past couple of days, I have found myself thinking of your Sadie every time I call my own Sadie's name. I am so sorry for the loss of your Sadie. Hold on to your memories...
i'm still looking at the places where she used to be; i'm still walking our evening walk; i'm still looking at her raised feeder; i'm still staring at our bed, expecting to see her sleeping on it. i will be doing this for a long, long time.
Such sad news. We know what it's like to lose two girls so close to each other. Just not fair.
i didn't think we'd have this happen to us: there was no reason to. perhaps i thought i was somehow untouchable. i could not fathom how others coped, although i figured they did the best they could. so within the span of a year we've had a taste of osteo, and now the passing of two greys. we were so touchable.
My heart breaks every time. Sweet Sadie, you are going to be missed so terribly. My deepest sympathy to all who loved Sadie.
thanks, lori. she always kept her eye on me; i suspect she does it still.
Sweet Sadie, now together with Katie again. I have no words of comfort. So many lovely dogs have left in the past 12 months or so. It's like an epidemic. Every one hurts even though I don't know them personally. So I'm sharing your sadness but also looking forward to the arrival of Bean. We need some puppy photos and tales :)
we were going to take sadie with us to get bean. she didn't like car rides all that much. she really could've used a companion, although i think she coped with not having katie around for the past six months better than i thought she would. i really wanted to see how she and the puppy would interact, as well as with our friend's three greys. i want to think they would've gotten along splendidly, and i was prepared to photograph it like nobody's business.
Sleep softly dear Sadie. You've earned your rest.
i suspect she's play-bowing, running figure-8's in the grass, and resting her head on the backs of every greyhound she's meeting now. i'm picturing that in my mind, and i don't mean to lose those memories.
So very sorry for your loss. It is so heart wrenching when you have to say goodbye. She was a beautiful girl and I know you are so heart broken. You are in our thoughts.
So very sorry to hear this...Such a beautiful girl.
I'm terribly sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing Sadie's beauty through your photographs.
