Angels come in Black - Tribute - Lilo 'No Illusions'

Raced into Our Hearts Forever

 

We are so very saddened to tell of Lilo’s passing, peacefully, gently and softly as she lived her life.

Lilo – the hound who

Never asked to go for a walk, but catapulted to the door when car keys rattled.

Never asked for food but licked up every carpet crumb

Never nudged a half opened door – never sure she should

Never minded you leaving

Never noticed when you came back

Never refused what was asked of her

Never let discomfort show

​Lilo - Angels Come in Black - Lilo goes Glossy

Lilo has not done much during this hot and humid summer - except loaf about on her sofa, re-reading her favourite book, Comet’s Tale, thus keeping up the fine reputation that greyhounds have on Sofa Management.

Everything had a long rest from ear tips to toenails. She did attempt to fill in her days by writing an account of her summer holiday, but the brief rough note I saw in her bed, just said “I done nothing” which didn’t really make for riveting reading.

2000th Adoption!

Greyhounds as Pets (GAP) announced the successful placement of their 2,000th retired racing greyhound on Saturday, 7 October 2017. GAP reached this milestone within ten years of their first adoption processed in 2007.

Freda (Sedgebrook Freda), was the landmark 2,000th dog.   Freda has been welcomed into the family of Alison, Neil and Ben from Napier. “We had such a good time with this adoption, and it was perfectly evident that this was Freda’s forever family,” says GAP Rehoming Manager, Danielle Valentic.
