In memoriam

After a terrible and horrible start in their short dog life they all found their heaven on earth. Now they have exchanged it for the eternal dog paradise where they will faithfully wait for their master/mistress at the end of the rainbow bridge.

    Name: 
    Aude
    Date of decease: 

    Dear Aude,

    Audje, Audjepootje, my big gift.

    Five years ago, you came into our life.

    “The kindest dog in the world”, always happy, the lady who always laughed” … Those words people who know you well said, they say all, better than that I cannot describe you.  In the last two months of your life I could add “my wise courageous lady”.  At the end of April, we got the terrible verdict: “Aude has an osteosarcoma”. We had your leg amputated, after careful consultation with the “medical world” and with people who knew you very well.

    We did not make this decision overnight; you were almost 13 years old. You, who were so vivacious, who loved to live so much, and went for it, who trained the new ones in the pack, always happy, grateful for everything, after all you suffered in the first years of your life in Spain, the many scars were witnesses, you unconditionally and eagerly greedy have closed us in your paws and in your heart. Each time I am surprised how dogs like you who had a sad and loveless existence still can love us.  Your forgiveness was great and most of all admirable, and therefore we must give you this chance. I learned so much from you, dear girl, I am so grateful that you came into my life, “only” five years, I wish we could have had many more…but suddenly you could not go on anymore, you became weaker and got more and more pain, we often had to carry you outside …

    This was too much for you, I knew it, and I saw it in your eyes, I felt it … the despair and the sorrow became painfully clear and enclosed my heart like an ice cold hand. Darling, you have fought the battle bravely while the weapons were uneven. You gave us the best of yourself.  We had to make a heartbreaking choice to let you go, in our arms of course, never alone anymore, you will always be in our thoughts, someday we will walk side by side again sweetheart. A part of us went with you, we miss you immensely, the house is empty and cold without you. I hope that, wherever you are now, together with your little brother Cardif, you are hopping without pain and that you are happy.

    Farewell darling till we meet again.

    Aude died on the 8th July 2020 at 11:15h.

    Farewell dear Ana, you have given us a lot of love through your addiction to hugs, your paw on our legs and the thousand licks.  You were a cheerful dog who played in the garden together with Vega and opened the garbage bins etc… you did everything for an extra snack.  But then for you old age problems with epileptic attacks started, you could not get up anymore and we gladly helped you stand up. Finally, we decided together with the veterinarian to let you put to sleep with dignity. Rest in peace dear mouse. Vega is mourning with us, wait for us in heaven.

    She came to us on the 12th September 2015, deceased on the 17th July 2020.

    Dear Arco,

    In 2010, after 3 not so nice years in Spain, we had the chance to offer you a golden basket via Greyhounds in Nood.  You were like a child to us and as from the first day we were incredibly happy with you. During the years with us you never complained, or you did, when we returned home on a day that you could not accompany us with the car. Most of the time you joined us even to a restaurant.  In our house we NEVER had to clean up something, you were very neat.  Unfortunately, after 10 years with us, you were 13 years old then, you suddenly got heart and arthrosis problems.

    Medication was the only remedy, you could not heal, we could only ease the pain.

    You could not join us in the car anymore and even short walks were too painful for you.

    Now at the age of 13 we had to let you go after a diagnosis of lung cancer.

    Dear Arco, your Mom and I will NEVER forget you and we will miss you immensely.

    Thank you for the many years together and we are sure that in the dog heaven you will also be loved.

    Mommy and Daddy

    My dear Louise,

    Yesterday evening I had to let you go unexpectedly, your body gave up.

    When I adopted you at the age of 10, after a life of 8 years abuse in Spain as a breading female and thereafter the neglect in an adoption family, there was no other alternative for me than to give you a warm home. You looked so much like my Estelle and I hoped that I could still give you at least a year of love so that you could forget your previous life.  Together we spent more than 4 beautiful years in which you gradually gained confidence. You followed me everywhere, I was your guardian together with your sisters. You were the softness itself, always modest and grateful for each kind word and caresses over your frail body. You conquered everyone’s heart with your long hair and soft eyes.  It was terrible to let you go but it was the only thing I could still do for you. But I was close to you and held you when you softly left to the dog heaven.  I miss you, my sweet girl, your noble heart will forever be connected to mine.  Rest in peace now, you deserved it.

    Dear James,

    We have made each other’s dream come true: “later when I would grow up” I intended to give a warm home to abandoned dogs. You were one of them: skinny, frightened, “worn out” by your boss and in search of a golden basket. You doubted for a while, after 5 days you escaped out of fear.  When the police informed me that they had seen you three municipalities further running in the fields I lost my hope to ever see you again.

    But in the evening, you were back! All alone you had found your way back home! What an orientation. I was not angry at all, but relieved and I thought: this dog knows that it will be good to stay here.

    And so, it was. For 3 years you welcomed me merrily at the door.  When I woke up, you woke up too and stuck to my leg.  You were a shadow, and very affectionate!

    From a shy dog you became a cuddly dog and a faithful friend!

    Cancer is a dirty disease and even four-legged do not escape it. Between the time that we realized that you were not enthusiastic anymore and the result of your blood test, the verdict had fallen nothing could be done anymore. The only thing we could do in your last days was to spoil you so that we could let you leave your familiar environment without too much guilt.

    But it always hurts…

    My James, my little man, my little boy, coming home will never be the same anymore, but what wonderful memories you have left!

    Julieta, Jul'ken,
     

    Six years ago, you ended up on the street in Salamanca with a half-blooded tail. 

    Merciful soldiers took care of you, and you arrived at Belén’s.  For six months she took care of you until I could welcome you in my house and my nice and safe garden.

    On beautiful days you loved sunbathing in the grass. You could stalk the pigeons like a lion and then sprint to them, always in vain… You were fast and flexible. You flew over the steps from the garden into the house. You were so fast that Nina regularly reprimanded you with a gruff bark: “be quiet!”

    You enjoyed when I massaged your sides. When it was enough you just walked away. You were always thoughtful.  You could look at me with a tilted head: “may I? You were a coquettish lady. Until a few months ago you even did your own manicure.  But you allowed Pinta to wash your eyes…

    A few minutes after I left you and Pinta in the evening to go to bed, our little one started to bark, and you started your mooing concert.  Now Pinta is barking alone, without your voice to support her…

    At the end of last year, a thickening of the intestinal wall was diagnosed. You had IBD or lymphoma, the Veterinarian told us. But IBD is not showing up that late in your life.  You were almost 14 years old then.  With cortisone you still had for several months a worthy and painless life, they assured us.  You got hypoallergenic food, exclusive horse meat and hut cheese, and now and then an egg to compensate the shortage of proteins.

    In the last months, the nights were short.  You drank a lot and you had to go outside a lot.  I liked doing it! Finally, you have chosen your moment.  In the last day you deteriorated so quickly that the Veterinarian arrived too late to end your suffering.  You died in my arms.  I held your noble head till the end….

    During a period of more than ten years Brisa, Nina and you gave me intense and emotional moments, moments of drama, moments of tenderness.  Nobody will take your place anymore.  The emptiness cannot, will not be filled anymore…Suddenly I realize that I will mourn all three for a long time still.

    I will keep your piggy, Juliette. You loved to rest your chin on it to philosophize.

    Till we meet again at the rainbow bridge, my proud, beautiful lady. Thank you for letting me take care of you…

    Your Miesken (Myriam De Clercq) and Pinta

    Paulette,

    3 years ago, you arrived in our family together with your sister Pauline. You were so scared of everything, a bird, the wind…. But together with your sister you felt better after some time and you also started to enjoy your golden basket.  In the last months you started to deteriorate in your head. Sometimes it was difficult to know why you were whining and after a while we understood that regularity and structure were important for you.  On the 15th January fate struck, you went to sleep and did not wake up anymore. It was a comfort for all of us that you did not suffer but passed away peacefully in your familiar sofa. We have loved you very much girl, enjoy yourself over the rainbow bridge and give our regards to Diva.

    Paulette arrived in our house on the 11th March 2017 and passed away at home on the 15th January 2020.  She was 12 years old.

    My dearest Zara, you entered our life in 2012 and we were delighted, you were 6 years old at that time.  We had the privilege to have you with us for 8 years, unfortunately fate decided that you had to leave for the rainbow bridge. Dear girl, it was an honor to be your adoption mother. Be well over the rainbow bridge, your little brother is waiting for you. I will miss you immensely dear girl.

    Almost five years after Rex, on Friday the 27th December 2019, I had to let Lara go with pain in my heart and had her cremated on the 31st December 2019 at Hoka. In the past year she was suffering from a kidney failure and the quality of her live deteriorated in the last weeks.  The decision was made together with veterinarian Pol Boucherie whom I am grateful for having taken good care of my Lara. Lara fully enjoyed life, she loved walking and she always took her time to discover everything. We walked before and after work and in my free time.  Everywhere where possible she accompanied me, she loved to sit in the car, and she was loved by our family. Running around in the garden was her pleasure, to miss a turn also happened sometimes especially while chasing the neighboring cats and for a galgo girl she was a tough one, she never complained.

    Lara, you were born in a country where they do not care about your life, but what I could give you, nobody can never take away.  Rest in eternal peace at home next to my Rex together with Max and Boef my 2 Bouviers.

    Goedemiddag Mireille & Dirk,

    De voorbije maanden had ik al dikwijls gedacht om jullie een mailtje te sturen over Dayko (oorspronkelijk Xavi).  Dit naar aanleiding van de ontelbare keren dat er alweer iemand zijn windhond dumpt van zodra het beestje ouder wordt en meer zorg vraagt. De voorbije 2 jaar is Dayko ook zo’n zorgenkindje geweest dat we op alle vlakken zo goed mogelijk hebben proberen vertroetelen, verzorgen en soms oplappen. Helaas is het lot mij te snel afgeweest en moet ik jullie vandaag melden dat we Dayko vorige vrijdag hebben laten inslapen. Hij is net geen 10 jaar lang mijn maatje geweest. 

    Dayko was sinds 2 jaar een beetje op de sukkel met zijn rug. In het begin hadden we het zelfs niet eens door, want hij klaagde nooit. Maar na controle bij de dierenarts omdat hij begon urine te druppelen in huis bleek dat hij pijn aan de schouders en onderrug had. Veel pijn, zo zei de dierenarts. Met de nodige supplementen, goede voeding en beweging  was dat toen nog prima op te vangen. Hij genoot enorm van zijn snuffeltochten in het veld, uitstapjes naar de zee en het dagelijkse toertje in de buurt samen met zijn Saluki zus Yasmine. 

    Sinds het begin van dit jaar kwam er naast het “druppelen” een vervelender probleempje bij: hij begon ook stoelgang te verliezen in zijn slaap of voelde het niet meer op tijd aankomen…  Bijna dagelijks en soms zelfs meerdere keren per dag waren er accidentjes in huis. Er zijn inderdaad leukere dingen dan elke dag opstaan en – verstand op nul - alles opkuisen, wasmachine opzetten  om dan aan de dag te beginnen. Maar ik had hem ooit lang geleden beloofd dat ik altijd voor hem zou zorgen, in goede en kwade dagen. We hebben lang gezocht om hem zo goed mogelijk te ondersteunen. Tegen de pijn kreeg hij dagelijks MSM en CBD-olie en na zijn acupunctuursessie om de 1-2 weken kon hij soms terug een spurtje trekken alsof hij een paar jaar jonger was. En hij genoot nog steeds van zijn leven! Dat was belangrijk voor mij, dat ik zag dat hij blij was als hij in zijn vertrouwde akker rondliep. Er was nog steeds voldoende balans, nog genoeg dingen waar hij van genoot. 

    Eind september viel Dayko 3 keer in evenveel weken tijd. Op zijn leeftijd was herstellen geen evidentie meer. Vorige week, in de nacht van donderdag op vrijdag, moet hij opnieuw gevallen zijn. Wat er precies aan de hand was zullen we nooit  weten. Ondanks zijn anti-slip sokjes is hij toch op weg naar de deur ten val gekomen. We hebben hem opgeraapt maar hij kon niet meer zelfstandig stappen, verloor zijn evenwicht, we vreesden het ergste…

    Na een nacht in observatie bij de dierenarts hebben we hem nog thuis verzorgd, met de hand gevoerd en alle mogelijke steun en zorg gegeven die we konden. Maar de laatste 2 dagen was de pijn ondraaglijk geworden, pijn die we zelfs met de hoogste dosis pijnstillers niet meer onder controle kregen. Er bleef maar 1 redelijke beslissing meer over...
Met pijn in het hart hebben we onze lieve jongen laten gaan. Zijn strijd tegen de pijn en de lichamelijke aftakeling was ongelijk, oneerlijk en jammer genoeg niet meer te winnen. We zullen hem altijd herinneren als onze mooie, lieve, zachtaardige jongen die nooit geklaagd heeft. Hij was altijd blij met alles wat hem te beurt viel, genoot van zijn wandelingen en een knuffel op tijd en stond, zou zich nooit opgedrongen hebben. Ik zal nooit vergeten hoe hij vanuit zijn mand naar mij kon liggen kijken, met die liefdevolle ogen.

    Rust zacht mijn jongen. Je bent nu voor altijd van de pijn verlost.

    Date of decease: 

    Last Monday with much regret and sorrow we had to say farewell to our Goliath.

    Our sweet, big, black boy came into our life and our family 8,5 years ago.

    About 8,5 years ago we had chosen a Spanish galgo on the site but soon we received a phone call asking if we would be willing to adopt Goliath because nobody wanted to adopt him because of his sad look on the photo. We were his last chance and we took him although we had some thoughts.  Beginning July 2011, just before Goliath would leave Spain he was attacked by other dogs and we were asked if we would still adopt him, he was very injured and had big wounds.  Yes of course, especially now, we want to take care of him was our answer. Goliath was very injured and a very scared boy.  When we picked him up, that Saturday morning in July, we were worried, we did not know what was waiting for us…he was our first adoption dog.  Would we manage, did we not decide too fast? These questions disappeared like snow in the sun because Goliath was from the first minutes a treasure and so grateful. For 8,5 years we have been best friends, companions, soul mates, everything!

    Our dear black galgo became older.  Last year he got a friend, a Rumanian adoption dog, a playful dog and Goliath revived. He enjoyed the challenges from our Guus until it was enough and then he stopped the little rascal. He was very calm, on his cushion in the kitchen, enjoying his old age but always more pain in his joints and with less muscles preventing him from walking up straight.  It took a while before I saw and realized that it was getting worse.  On Monday afternoon I decided to let him go to the place where there will be no more pain.  He was cremated and now he is back home…forever. I did not know that it would be so hard to say farewell to Goliath.  He was the first one in the morning to welcome me and the last one to say goodnight. We thank you and the Greyhounds in Nood organization to bring Goliath and our family together.  Without your phone calls we would never have known our beautiful, kind, black boy which would have been a great loss.

    Kind regards.

    Date of decease: 

    Dear Annabella, today we have let you become an angel, without fear and pain from the past, with beautiful memories of the last 8 years and without bad diseases that have worn out your body throughout the years and without worries in your beautiful head.  You were and remained a gorgeous and kind dog with your own living environment, with your funny eyes, your sweet ears, your grouch, your chattering teeth, sighs and your pushing paw when you wanted something. For a long time, you had been on the adoption list, for more than a year, until mama saw you.  All the others were wrong for not wanting to adopt you, you were a sweetheart and so beautiful. Your adoption name Hortense was very quickly changed into Annabella-Maria, worthy of a princess name and mama’s flower. I remember well your start here, you did not know what a blanket, a basket, cushion or bed was.  The cold floor was your best friend, but not for long. After 1 week you discovered what was the use of a staircase and you jumped with 4 movements up the 18 steps.  You liked to jump against my back, and you were growling like a grizzly bear, to play of course and we also played the game. Slowly you were dominated by Matea and you became quieter and quieter. But we, Duffie, Fido, Fee, Neertje and Tiny were always there for you and you loved us. We saw you revive after our Matea got wings but soon the past left its traces on your skin, in your head, in your body. You became older very fast.  To love you is to support you in your worse days, to hug you and reassure you, ease your pain and chase your nightmares. Together we could manage. Being our last greyhound child with 3 crazy Pinscher sisters, you also have known Fietje.  This was something, fortunately you could complain every now and then about the crazy mama who constantly ran around with the camera. With a dark brown snout, you turned into a wise grey old lady. Your body was exhausted and together we have chosen your wings. Until this morning when I got up, your skinny legs were jumping for joy and fun.  Mama got them all on photo and video.  You gave such a beautiful last breath before you left us and on your last photo next to the flowers you look zo beautiful (these photos are private) just like you were always lying. Be well darling, our tiny dark brown doll, sweet greyhound girl. Go now, play, rest, look for Meme, join Fido, Duffie and Matea. Enjoy heaven full of beauty, softness, colours, and rainbows, without pain and especially with us your family here in the Westhoek in your heart forever.

    Big kiss, we are so happy that you made our life so much nicer with your presence.

    Thank you, Annabella, “Atje”, So long!

    After having been our princess for 11 years and after six months of sickness, we had to let our first greyhound put to sleep forever. Nacha you were 2 years old when we picked you up at the Pillowrijn in November 2008.  You were so enthusiastic when you met us that we were the only ones with mud on our coats.  After the photo with Mireille was made and the necessary administration done you installed yourself in the car without problems. At that moment we already discovered your aristocratic behavior, you crossed elegantly your front legs for which you quickly got your nickname “princess”. A role that you played seriously during the 11 years with us.  Already after one day we knew that we could not leave food not even a frozen meat ball on the table or the countertop.  We travelled a lot together almost every month for a week with the camper where you had your permanent place which lead sometimes to a quarrel when a year later your sister Kianga (whom passed away a year ago) arrived in our family.  In short many years with ups and downs where you have given us a lot of support and happiness.  The house and the camper will be empty now, but you will be forever in our heart.  We will miss you.

    My dear Sombra,

    We adopted you when you were not that young anymore.  You were already 9 years old, but we absolutely wanted to give you golden years in a “forever home” with your own family.

    You were full of love and you supported me often in difficult moments. And you were so happy! Especially when we went out walking you were so happy that you could not keep control and started to jump around.  But the years passed by so fast… Slowly your ears became worse, you no longer heard us calling. Your big loving eyes became whiter and so your snout.  We sometimes had to guide you when you did not see well.  The walks became shorter because your hind legs refused service.  But all these problems could be overcome.  You got older and could no longer hold your urine, which we ignored and cleaned up.  After all we would have done everything to be able to keep you with us. One morning to our great shock you could not stand up anymore and then we realized that your body was worn out. Every time that you wanted to get up, we helped you. Even the veterinarian had no solutions anymore.  You were older than 13 and your hind legs could not improve anymore. We have tried everything to keep you longer with us but one day when you refused to eat, we did not know what to do.  You did not want chunks, not even sandwiches with pâté. We prepared beefsteak for you, but you only ate 2 little pieces. Our choices were to say farewell to you surrounded with love from the whole family in your own bed and sleep peacefully or to be selfish and let you suffer longer to stay with us for a few more days.  We have chosen the first option. Our sorrow is immense when we sit at your empty bed.  Despite what you might have endured in Spain you were such a sweetheart… We have no words for our loss!

    Will you wait for me at the beautiful rainbow bridge in heaven?  When my time has come, I will meet you there and we will walk again together without pain.

    I love you my dear Sombra.

    Hello kind people,

    With a lot of regret and tears we inform you that Fons (our Black Beauty) passed away on Friday afternoon. Fons fought a battle that he could never win, but we have made the best of the last 2 months. Fons has always been a problem dog but he endured like a real gentleman. He had a chronic infection on the jaw muscles which could be treated with cortisone. Quite by accident it was determined that he had severe heart rhythm disorders together with DCM.  For this problem he already received the necessary medication for 17 months and did not suffer. His heart was checked every 3 months and in September the veterinarian saw that his belly was swollen. After examination the diagnosis was liver cancer.  We knew we could not overcome this disease, when possible, we induced his appetite with cortisone (it was important that he continued eating).  Until the last day he kept eating but suddenly, in a few hours’ time, his body was completely weak. He could not stand on his legs anymore. The veterinarian said that the tumour has eaten his muscles and that Fons would not make it to the end of the weekend.  Together with the veterinarian we made the decision to let him sleep forever. Nona (the other Black Beauty) is having a hard time now.  She lost her mate and we think she is angry at us, but she gets extra attention.  We must let it rest now, a family member is gone, and we must get used to it. Another Black Beauty may be welcome soon, but we will wait a while, the greatest grief must be alleviated first.

    Fons was our pearl and it was a pleasure to have him in our family!

    With much regret we had to say farewell to Bartollo today the 4th November 2019.  He was too much in pain due to bladder cancer. For one year my sister Dupont Mauritia was able to give him a dignified life thanks to medication. Bartollo was about 2 years old when he arrived at the airport.  For 11 years they were true friends, he was her shadow even when she went to the toilet and the bathroom. It was amazing to see how much he loved her. But the time to let him go had come and veterinarian Fostermans has euthanized him softly.  We are devastated and I write this message because my sister is too sad to do or say anything and now he is a little star to watch over her.

    Sleep in peace Bartollo, you will be in our heart forever.

    My dear Lub-Azor, my blue Angel passed away

    Our hearts are torn

    I hope there is someone

    Who will take care of me?

    When I die, will I go then?

    Hope there is someone

    Who will let my heart free?

    To hold it when I am tired

    There is a spirit at the horizon

    When I go to bed

    How can I fall asleep at night?

    How can I lay my head down to rest?

    I am afraid  of the middle place

    Between light and nowhere

    I do not want to be the one that I want to be

    Left in here, left in there

    There is a man at the horizon

    I wish I would go to bed

    When tonight I fall at his feet

    Will I lay my head down to rest?

    And hope here that I will not drown

    Or be paralyzed in the light

    And for God’s sake I will not go

    To the watershed of the seal

    Hope there is someone

    Who will take care of me?

    When I die, will I go then?

    Hope there is someone 

    Who will let my heart free?

    To hold it when I am tired

    We do not know how to go on…

Your shy and suspicious character were the witnesses.  Together with your “sister” Sally who made the trip with you to Belgium we did our utmost to give you inner peace and a real warm home.  In the process of time you allowed us more and more into your world, you flourished and showed your beautiful character.

    The farewell was unexpected and much too fast.

    You were gentle and loving, grateful and always happy, affectionate and careful.

    Never nagging or complaining. You were one out of a thousand.

The disease was suppressed after a heavy treatment, then it relapsed but you stayed cheerful. Eating became difficult, your body started to deteriorate, your kidneys failed, you lost weight, almost 5 kg in one week, and kennel cough started… We did not want you to suffer, and we decided to give you a worthy end of life.  Felix, we will never forget you, you were a greyhound with a great character.  You made us laugh many times with your hilarious behavior!  Bisquit, our old girl, learned a lot from you and thanks to you she became very social in her old days.  And now…you are gone…  We will never forget you and we will remember you as a beautiful and passionate boy! Be well up there…

    Date of decease: 

     

    I would have liked so much to postpone this mail until later in the future, but unfortunately, I could not. Today we had to say farewell to Mira (Violetta).  She was our first Galgo. From the first moment on she stole our heart. She arrived in our family at the age of 2 and she stayed with us for 8 years. Our two poodles welcomed her and taught her to play.  She felt immediately at home and it seemed as if she had always been with us. Mira was a quiet one but, on the street, when we met other four-legged animals she reacted with a growling that seemed to come out of the deepest part of her belly so that the others on the street knew that they could not mess with her. Nevertheless, she had a good character. Later, we also adopted a pup and it was okay for her.  She loved to accompany us to our vacation home in Limburg where there was a lot to discover and where she could run freely. Yet she has had setbacks, first she had eye problems that made here blind for the last 3 years. But she managed and we kept everything in place, and it seemed if she could count her steps. So many steps and then a little bit to the right or left and then so many steps to the sofa. And since the beginning of this year she had recurrent diarrhea. Special food together with medication helped but today she suddenly got worse and had a lot of pain.  The veterinarian and we have tried everything but in vain. With a lot of pain in our heart we had to let her go.  I have no words to tell how much I miss her already now. We do not realize yet that she is gone forever.  But she will always have a warm place in our heart and in the heart of all our family members, she was loved by everyone.

    My husband and I are grateful to you and the organization for making it possible for us to take care of this treasure, and for having given us the chance. THANK YOU !!!

    My dear, dear Vienna.  You were unique, literally and figuratively. You were our first long-awaited dog.  You arrived in our family in 2009 and unfortunately you left us yesterday. But you are still in our heart forever.

    On the 1stof May you became 14 years old.  For two years you were living with a malignant tumour in your nose.  Thanks to adequate medication it was under control all this time. But yesterday it became worse and we did not want you to suffer, we loved you too much to let this happen. You are now united with your friend Feliz, our second adopted galgo. Run free girls! Yin and yang are again united. You could still “educate” Capri and Loulou, the two of them are again yin and yang.

    We will never forget you, my dearest, and best girlfriend forever!

    With pain in our heart we must inform you that our dear Olivier passed away.

    When he arrived in our family about 4 years ago, we did not now what to expect but soon he conquered our heart.  From the first moment he was super sweet, playful and always hungry.  He could run like the best, even so fast that we were sometimes scared that he would hurt himself.  In the last months he suffered from pain in his back and after a visit to the veterinarian the diagnosis was 3 hernias.  Suddenly, he got much worse, his hind legs got paralyzed and we had no other choice than to let him go.

    He spent his last day at home with all his loved ones around him.

    It is quiet without him, but he will stay forever in our heart.

    Chula, you entered our life on the 23rd June 2013 as our first greyhound.  We were looking forward to you.  You immediately conquered our heart. You had so much love to give which surprised us knowing what you endured in your life before GINB found you. Coming home the whole neighbourhood heard that we had been away. With your joyful howling you let us know that you were happy that we were home again. But we will miss that now, as well as your insistence to get the wanted hugs. You never gave up.  But you were too sick to ask for it.  Be happy with all your brothers and sisters who left before you.  Zoë also misses you.

    2006-2019

    Farewell to the sun in our house.

    On the 7th May 2013 the blind Sol arrives in Casa Belgica after an agony in small shelters that could not give the best care for a blind galgo.  At that time, he was 7 years old, born in April 2006.  Under the loving care of Mireille and Dirk he could spend beautiful summer months in Casa Belgica.  When I received the Spain update for translation and when I read his sad story, I immediately called Mireille to inform her that I could give him a golden basket. And that’s how he arrived in our home in September 2013 where he had the time of his life with our two galgo girls Mara and Tilia, and later with Mira, Donna and Jupiter.

    Six months ago, the veterinarian diagnosed two leaking heart valves but with the right medication he could further comfortably enjoy our walks and the sun terrace. Already with the first sun rays he wanted to go outside, he could not see the sun, but he could feel it even more.  He honoured his name; he was the sun in our house.  In the past days his heart beats and respiration became worse and walking became more difficult.  In consultation with the veterinarian it was decided that we would give him a worthy and peaceful end of life to spare him worse complications. He fell asleep quietly on the 12thApril 2019.  He was 13 years old and during almost 6 years he was my dearest galgo boy.

     

    It hurts but there is now a “warm sun” in my heart forever.

    Ria De Smedt, his sisters Mira and Donna and his brother Jupiter.

    On the 14thMarch 2019 we had to make the very difficult decision to let you put to sleep at home.  It is unbelievable how deep you were in our hearts already after such a short period of 5 months. We would have loved to have had you longer with us, but we are happy anyway that we could make these precious months for you as beautiful as possible.  My advice is to enjoy each day, to enjoy the people and animals that are dear to you so that when you have to say farewell you will not regret anything, and the sorrow will be less painful.

    Your  beautiful brown eyes

    Unfortunately lost their brightness

    They slowly became pale

    You did not stand a chance

    Your health got worse

    And it broke my heart

    When I saw how you looked at me

    The farewell was unavoidable

    I did not want you to suffer

    One last quick hug

    And one last caress

    Then I must go

    It is too hard for me.

    We will miss you so much,

    Dear Lucifer,

    It is very difficult for me to write this text. I did not expect to say farewell to you already now.  You went as unexpected as you came, barely 5 years old.

    I saw you for the first time that Friday morning when you arrived in Belgium from Spain. You had a long trip behind you. Nobody knows where you came from. But one morning, you were found, hiding at a bus stop nearby Casa Belgica where Mimi and Dirk took care of you before going to your new home.  I entered your kennel to read your chip and you made it clear to me that you wanted to come along with me: you put your legs on my shoulder and your head against mine… and I could not resist.

    Since that day you were a part of our family and amaDeus became your best friend forever.  Both of you were inseparable and where one went, the other followed. I could enjoy watching you run through the garden and the one that was running first, looked quickly over his shoulder to be sure that the other one was following.  At the end of 2017 it became clear that something was wrong: the leishmania parasite seemed to be active again despite the medication.  You endured courageously and patiently all examinations and the heavy Milteforan cure.  It was a desperate attempt because your bone marrow and kidneys were badly affected, but we hoped to give you another chance. 

    During last summer you and amaDeus extensively played on the beach, although even there it was obvious, dear Lucifer, that the rampant parasite in your body was taking its toll.  You became tired sooner, you could not keep up with amaDeus anymore, but you still enjoyed racing, and being free. Dear Lucifer, you were the softest dog I have ever known and therefore you managed to be caressed by everyone.  

    And then that terrible Monday came.  It seemed harmless, your nose was bleeding. During the whole day we tried to stop it. When that did not help, we went to the animal clinic and there we heard the bad news: they could not help you anymore… we had to say farewell. We went together for a last walk. You seemed to feel that your suffering was over: you sniffed everywhere and for the first time since long I saw again the light-footed step that made you so beautiful and elegant.  When we returned you passed away close to me.

    We miss you.

    With pain in our heart we inform you that our Tito passed away on the 2ndMarch 2019. His heart stopped beating during his morning walk. He still played with us and then he collapsed, it happened so fast. There was no indication that something was wrong with his heart. The thought that he did not suffer is comforting us. We are left behind alone and devastated.

    Six years ago, we adopted Tito, there was an immediate relationship.  We totally changed our life, we only lived for Tito.  The difficult start early in his life we tried to compensate from the first day with us.  He has never been alone, when we had to leave there was always someone to take care of him. He slept where we did, he ate where we did, he was everywhere with us, where Tito was not welcome, we did not go! Our vacations with the travel home were special for him, everywhere he went, he made new friends, everybody loved our “ beautiful dog”. Tito was the perfect dog, inside and outside.  During our walks he did not hunt the rabbits, cats where also safe. It was so good to see how he liked little children.  Our grandchild loved him, he was his best friend forever.

    His boss was the world for him, he was Johny’s shadow, where Johny was Tito also was. Tonight, we will say farewell to him and afterwards he will return home.

    Dirk, Mireille, thank you for having brought Tito to us and for having given us the 6 most beautiful years of our life.

    The broken-hearted bosses, Johny and Olga.
