This week our beloved greyhound Blue had to be put to sleep after reaching nearly 14 years. This was a very sad occasion, but we were lucky to have lived with Blue for more than 9 years after adopting him from a greyhound rescue organization.

Greyhounds are calm, loving and loyal companions as well as being amazing athletes. Saying that we “rescued” Blue seems inaccurate to me. He was a valued member of our family who will be missed greatly.

Blue was bred as a racing greyhound; he raced 20 times under the name Deep Dark Blue. Basic information about him given on a greyhound racing website is shown below.
