When we were looking for a dog, it was suggested by a family member that we ought get a Greyhound.  We considered the suggestion and went to an RSPCA rescue centre in Surrey and there we found Bella;  all skin and bone and so forlorn and tired it was an effort for her to put her paw in my fingers.  Suffice it to say  that was it, I was smitten, hook line and sinker, hubby too..... we built her up and eventually she was not  the dog that we rescued..... she was a beauty, as her name suggested, she was  a wonderful friend to all the family and it was extremely hard to say goodbye to her, when she was diagnosed with throat cancer.  She is missed even now 15 years on and with greyhound number 3, Hope.

I have pictures of her some where, I've been looking, but the problem is where to start....she was pre-current computer (old one crashed big time, lost almost everything) I had back-up CDs, but its "where are they now"....

My first greyhound was Rusty, he came into my life in 1988. My hubbie was working a lot of nights and me being young and on my own at night decided I needed a dog to protect me. I went to a rescue center in Eye, it is no longer there. It may have been a police pound, I'm really not sure. All I know is my husband had requested a smallish dog...I looked around all the dogs and saw 'Rusty' beautiful, deep red and so handsome but a bit on the skinny side. My Mum looked in at him too. After we'd examined all the pens Mum finally said "The greyhound is lovely I've heard they have lovely temperament".That was it, my permission to get him if you like. I bought him home and Dad sat with him while we went to a pet shop and bought just about everything we could think of. Later, after my parents went home my husband got up. To say he was shocked is an understatement..." I thought I said small he said"! "Oh but, he's lovely" I gushed and within a day he was as smitten as me! The rest is history! Rusty lived until he was around 17 he was as fit as a fiddle, never anything more than the odd upset tum. He had a very bad stroke and had to be put to sleep in the end.We couldn't believe we'd lost him we wanted him to last forever so big was his hold on our hearts... He was the first of many...
