We have gotten to know the family of greyhounds and one Shepard very well through the blogging community. We actually had the privilege of meeting Bunny, Blueberry and Morgan on a nursing home visit one night. We never had the privilege to meet Lilac in person, but we felt we already knew her from her blog posts. As her Mom is the most elegant writer that I have come across. And we know from her blog she was the best Mom that Lilac could have and Mr. Taleteller the best dad. We also know that Blueberry, Bunny and Morgan will be feeling her loss as well as they attempt to adjust to a new "normal".
Lilac had the bestest of family (two-legged and four-legged) that brought her so much joy once she retired from her racing years. She had her pillows fluffed and her fan positioned just right everyday. Lilac just recently celebrated her Sweet 16 birthday on September 20, 2011 and she celebrated in style for sure.
Run Free, Sweet Lilac
P.S...Lilac if you see a little short round hound (Cleo) running around, can you go ahead and chase her and catch her for me and give her a big old slobber Greyhound kiss for me. She will be your best buddy after that I am sure. :)
