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 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.
Lilo - Angels Come in Black
The Fountain of Youth
This the thing is – has Lilo discovered it? Is it something magical that she dug up in one of her multiple bunkers?
