10 weeks ago we had to have our 13 1/12 yr old adopted racing greyhound put to sleep. We’d had him for 10 years, and as the wife’s favorite, his passing hit her pretty hard.

Thanks to a wonderful fellow over on Scroll Saw Village, he was able to take the photo of Zeller and turn it into a pattern for me.

Greyhounds are wonderful, gentle dogs. Contrary to popular myth, you don’t have to have acres of land to have a grey. As long as they have room to get out and do their business, and the occasional walk, they are most happy taking naps! They’re often referred to as 40 mph speed bumps because while they can hit 40 mph at full stride, sleeping is their favorite thing!

My good friends just had to put their greyhound to sleep 2 days ago. I had worked with them for 6 years and he was an office dog. I hadn’t seen him in well over a year, but I’m still a bit shaken up by it. That’s a nice way to remember yours.
