Ah what a lovely post and mand, even though i dont know you i can totally relate to how you have been feeling (thank goodness i still have my jet) as have lost many cats over the years, all who individually break your heart when they leave but then they send us another (ok 5 but you get the gist) to help put the smile back on our face and 100% sounds just like what your angel gent has done...he'd be so proud of his mommy and what a wonderful life the lucky george is clearly going to have! Brought tears to my eyes reading your post but also tears of happiness! Lots of love to you all xxx

That’s such a lovely update Mand and yes he is adorable xx
It was lovely seeing him in his new environment on Sunday and he’s a very lucky boy.
I’m so pleased that you have a twinkle back in your eyes again as I know how much your beloved angel Gent meant to you both
Lots of love xxx

Lovely homing photo - wishing you all many happy years ahead. George is indeed gorgeous and a lucky boy to have found his forever home, just hope he doesn't destroy too many of Emily's toys or she wont be too happy! xx

This is just so lovely to read. - and confirms what greyhound owners know - that the right dog finds us. All we have to do is keep our hearts open. Gorgeous George is one handsome chap. What larks you will all have. I had my own Gorgeous George - a brindle - and he was with me until he was almost 16. So reading about your George brought back happy thoughts of him. Daisydog sends many many happy wags from the seaside and thinks Emily is a very lucky girl. Xx

To all our Greyhound friends and those we’re yet to meet, we’re delighted that George (aka Torc) has joined our family.

Those of you who know us, remember that we lost our beloved boy Gent last November. He was my first love and I miss him dreadfully. We still have Emily, but she’s a devoted Daddy’s girl. If the truth be told, I felt a bit lost.

Enter Torc. A handsome little fella with eyes that would melt any heart and the softest fur. His only problem was wound on his tail and an unhealthy taste for Vet-wrap and cotton-wool. He was in serious risk of losing part of his tail. Would a couple of days away from kennels help lift his mood?

What was only thought to be overnight has turned into forever for us all. He lost his appetite for Vet-wrap and the wound has pretty much healed now - we even stopped using his protective collar and muzzle after a few days.

Emily, his much older sisfur, has been mummying him a bit, although stares in shock at the state of her toys now (missing limbs and white fluff everywhere!!).

George has returned the shine to my eyes and we couldn’t be happier that he seems to enjoy spending time with us too. We look forward to many adventures together, which start on Saturday morning when we attend our first Greyhound training class with Julie.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words and for Kate and Ruth especially, who trusted us to look after George in the first place.

Mand and Gorgeous George xxxxx

Am absolutely delighted for this lad. I met your parents when they were talking through fostering but from the massive smile on their faces and the way they were cuddling you I had a good feeling you would not be returning!!! I hope your tail is now well on the mend and wish all of you many, many happy years together. Xx

It was so nice yesterday to briefly meet the kind people who are going to give this gorgeous little boy some much needed love and attention. He really is a lovely affectionate lad and I am sure you will all have a wonderful time.......and who knows???? Maybe a FFP t-shirt in sight!!??? In any case, either way, thank you soooo much. I am delighted. X

Poor Torc, we know about tail issues Breeze’s is only about 5” - she broke it and after bandages were put on she chewed the bandage and unfortunately she chewed her tail as well! Nasty but the pain killers must have been working. Xxx
