Thank you everyone. So so much.
People have asked what they can do to help. In lieu of flowers or whatever, I ask that you send a donation to:
AMAZING GREYZ, INC.
P.O. Box 387
Sheldonville, MA 02070http://www.amazing-greyz.org
They are a newer, fantastic rescue, who knows Wally's story. They take in dogs with racing injuries (broken legs, broken toes, torn cruciates, etc) as well as the dogs who are just ready for a new home. This is NOT the rescue that I adopted Wally from, but they are the rescue that I support, and that if I ever decide to take in another Grey in the future (even just as a foster) I will work with. They are also the rescue that I will be donating most of Wally's collars, and a lot of food to, in a few weeks when I can drive down there . . . when I am ready to snuggle with some Greyhounds.
Again thank you to everyone. Without your support there is no way I would be able to go on. My online friends and family, my in person friends and family, and all of those in between: my sincerest thank you. Teeny and I appreciate all of these good thoughts more than you could know.
