Benji He hath a share of man's intelligence, but no share of man's falsehood.
- Sir Walter Scott.
When we met in December 2002 at Pads Dog Rescue you were only 11 weeks old. An energetic loving ball of fluff. From that day till your last in June 2015 you were my constant companion forever at my side. Now you're with the angels you will forever be in my heart. To this day I still don't know who rescued who. Love you always my darling boy. -- Donna. x
Heaven goes by favour. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in

Our beautiful boy Ace. We enjoyed 7 years with you and you lit up our lives every day. We will miss you so much. RIP our big lad.
Kaz, Pat and Jade.
You were a gift, a true blessing in my life. You gave your mummy and daddy seven years of absolute joy. We miss you so very much.
My best friend, my constant companion, we went everywhere together even to work. I miss your huge toothy smile, your skipping when you saw me, your soft head resting on my knee, your beautiful eyes searching mine. In August last year you were with us on our wedding day, thank you for that, so many wonderful memories. You were so loved and will always be in our hearts. Until we meet again rest in peace my beautiful little girl, my little Ruby 2 Shoes. I love you.
Leo  Bessie
Leo went to sleep the final time on 30 October 2015.
He will be sadly missed by his adopted mum and his adopted nan nan.
He came to live with his adopted family in October 2008.
Leo had a lovely nature and was loved by everyone he met. His best friend was ruby. He had a lovely life going on holidays to the lake district, visiting friends. He loved going to the allotment with his mum. When his Nannan went into a nursing home he went in to say hi to the other residents frequently.
Rest in peace Baba.

 It was with a very heavy heart that I had to say goodbye to my beloved greyhound Bessie, yesterday 24/01/17. She was 14 and a half. She came bounding into my life 9 years, 3 months and 20 days ago, thanks to Celia and Jimmy at Greyhound Rescue Fife. She was the best friend I have ever had and everyone who knew her loved her. Bessie you will be so sadly missed and this house will never be the same without you, you are now reunited with your Greyhound buddy Spoonie. Run free over Rainbow Bridge. Love you xxx Neil.
Jasper Jewel
With broken hearts we had to say goodbye to our golden boy Jasper. The love and joy he brought to us over the last 4 years is immeasurable. He was the gentlest, loving and kindest greyhound we could ever have asked for. Run free over rainbow bridge our beautiful boy. In our hearts always, never to be forgotten. The house will never be the same without you. Thank you for choosing us.
Night night Jasper.
Evelyn and Neil.

Four years were not enough with you Jewel, we had so much more to do.

You were just perfect. You loved everything, everyone, and just loved life, and you were our best friend and companion. Mum and Dad miss you soooo much it hurts.

Love you and we will meet again. xxxxxxxx

I was standing on a hillside
In a field of blowing wheat,
And the spirit of a Greyhound
Was lying at my feet.

He looked at me with kind dark eyes,
Ancient wisdom shining through.
In the essence of his being,
I saw such love there too.

His mind locked upon my heart
As I stood there on that day,
And he told me of this story
About a place so far away.

As I stood upon that hillside
In a field of blowing wheat,
In a twinkling of a second
His spirit left my feet.

His tale put my heart at ease;
All my fears did fade away
About what lay ahead of me
On another distant day.

"I live among God's creatures now
In the heavens of your mind,
So do not grieve for me my friend,
As I am with my kind.

My collar is a rainbow's hue;
My leash is a shooting star.
My boundaries are the Milky Way
Where I sparkle from afar.

There are no pens or kennels here
For I am not confined,
But I'm free to roam God's heavens
Among the Greyhound kind.

I nap the day on a snowy cloud
Gentle breezes rocking me,
And dream the dreams of earthlings,
And how it used to be.

The trees are full of liver treats,
And tennis balls abound,
And milk bones line the walkways
Just waiting to be found.

There is even a ring set up,
The grass all lush and green;
And everyone who gaits around
Becomes the Best of Breed.

For we're all winners in this place;
We have no faults, you see.
And God passes out those ribbons
To each one, even me.

I drink from waters laced with gold,
My world a beauty to behold;
And wise old dogs form my pride
To amble at my very side.

At night I sleep in an angel's arms,
Her wings protecting me,
And moonbeams dance about us
Just as stardust falls on thee.

So when your life on earth is spent
And you stand at Heaven's gate,
Have no fear of loneliness--
For here, you know, I wait".
