Rainbow Bridge – Bohemian Cutty (Bo)

March 14, 2005 – November 24, 2012

We received word from our adopters, Kellie and Rob, that they lost their beloved Bohemian Cutty over the Thanksgiving holiday.  They had adopted him in November 2008.  He became ill Wednesday, the 21st, and got progressively worse over the next few days in spite of constant vet care and measures to keep him going.  Finally, they made the painful but unselfish decision to let him go Saturday the 24th.  The vets did their best to make him well but he never rallied.

Bo was only seven years old.  Kellie and Rob dearly loved him and they kept in touch with us over the years to let us know how he was doing.  We are always sad when we lose one of our adopted hounds but this is very painful for everyone to lose a younger dog.

We take solace in the fact that Bo was very much loved and cared for by his adopters.  He was a very lucky dog to have the good people in his life who valued him.  He will be missed very much.

Run free sweet Bo.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We would like to wish all of our Fast Friends Greyhound Rescue, Inc. family a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving! When we count our blessings, we are grateful beyond words for the wonderful people who are a part of our family. We are especially grateful this year for the exceptional volunteers who have made all the difference in how our group works. Your continued support and hours spent working on behalf of the hounds has made us what we are. We feel that 2012 has been our banner year, what we have worked for all along. Thanks to everyone who made this possible.

Thanks to all of those adopters who understand the commitment to their dogs and for loving and caring for them. You give us the strength and desire to keep going.

Enjoy your day!

Rainbow Bridge – CRK Gen Patton (Patton)

August 4, 2004 – November 11, 2012

We are sad to report that another one of our wonderful hounds has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.  Patton suffered from a very serious and deadly infection that could not be stabilized.  It was determined by his vet that at the very minimum, he would lose his leg and there was no guarantee that he would not lose his life.  It was a terrible decision for his adopters to make but they did what was right for Patton.

Patton was adopted by Mindy and Brian Dicken and boys in 2008.  Patton was a true “foster failure”.  He was taken in as a foster by Mindy but it did not take long for the family to decide that he belonged in their home!

Patton was dearly loved by his family.  He spent his life with lots of love from every member of the family, other greyhounds, great danes and cats.  He truly had the kind of life that we wish for every greyhound we place.

We know that the family has had a hard time over losing Patton; he was a very special dog.  But we take solace in the fact that he had the best home any greyhound could have.

Run pain free sweet Patton; you will be missed by all of us.
