August 30, 2003 - June 16, 2011

Last summer, we lost our youngest pack member to cancer. Colby, was only 6. As an on the spot adoption in 2006, Colby captured our hearts. My husband & I had no intention of adopting a 4th hound. The universe had a different plan.

He was our easy going, love bug. His tail constantly wagged. Mornings were his thing & he felt that it was a mortal sin to sleep in 2 minutes passed dawn. As the official greyhound alarm clock of the family, no speck of the day was wasted by him. He loved to chastise us for sleeping in.

I always imagined that it would be years before Colby left us. He was supposed to be our long-term hound. The year that we adopted him, he was only three. Again, the universe had a different plan.

Love them while you can.

The time goes quickly between,

"There's nothing wrong"


"There's nothing that we can do".
