Run Free - Sweet Lilac

It is with heavy hearts that we learned yesterday that our dear sweet blogging friends over at Tales and Tails had to help your beloved Lilac on her final journey.  I sure know they could use some {{HUGS}} from everyone in blogville.

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. :)

  1. Beautiful tribute to a very beautiful lady. We too loved Lilac and are so sad she had to leave. But we know she must now be one very happy pup running free with so many of our furry furiends.

  2. I'm sure Cleo and Lilac are already besties!! What a greatness they both are bringing to heaven!

  3. That was a vert sweet post Sherri. We were sad to hear about Miss Lilac but I know that she will find Miss Cleo and take her under her wing.
    RIP Sweet gal.

  4. Great post about the Lady Lilac... we will most definitely miss her...

  5. I just know that Lady Lilac is running the big race in the sky right now. Young and free again.

  6. Thank you for the very kind words! I am sure that Lilac has been having a great time with a whole host of characters that we've all been missing here, including the lovely Cleo. All the tears we've shed here just mean that she was very much loved, and I think it would be much sadder if no tears were shed for her at all. I never dreamed on that cold January night when I first met her how she'd change my life.

  7. What a beautiful tribute to that sassy gal we all loved so much.
