Tucson: Gordon Greyhound to the Rainbow Bridge

Posted in Greyhounds Rule/News, and In Memory - the Rainbow Bridge

Sweet Gordon Greyhound
See you at the Rainbow Bridge

From Cindy Hall:
Gordon went to the Rainbow Bridge last night. He was bitten by a rattlesnake a couple weeks ago. Evidently that may have compromised his immune system and allowed an aggressive tumor to grow in his wrist. When he stopped eating and sleeping, we knew it was time for him to go.

Gordon was simply the best dog. From the day he arrived at our home, he was well-behaved and sweet. He tolerated countless dogs coming into our home — some for a few hours to cat-test, some to foster, and a few to eventually stay and share his home. He was an ‘ambassadog’ at career days, the JCC, meet and greet events. It is hard to imagine how many lives he brightened.

He was truly loved and will be missed.
Godspeed Go Go~

I met Gordon many years ago. He went to a greyhound event and his foster parents were unable to pick him up so he came home with me for a few hours. It was a really fun few hours as he discovered every single toy and played with them with the most gusto. He tossed them in the air and caught them and shook them and piled them up, hoarding them. Meanwhile my dogs just said, “huh?”

Gordon will always have a big spot in my heart. KZ

Here’s my favorite photo of Gordon.

  2. I’m so sorry to read about this. It is very painful when we lose our loved sweet pets when we least expect it. I, too, lost my boy, I had 8 years and he went from a brain tumor which they believe was cancer. I also had to let him go. He had been healthy his whole life. Rest assured they are all in heaven romping and playing and waiting for us when our time has come.
