This was the last photo I took of Orin snuggled up to Elmo, Orin was such a snuggle bunny and always cuddling someone
Despite still having 8 hounds there is a huge gaping hole left by Orin, because he was such a clown and always making us laugh at his antics it's so noticeable. The other hounds have been wonderful, giving us the space to grieve and now they are trying to comfort us as we in turn try to give them back some stability.
It's hard to look outside and see the world is carrying on as normal whilst you are feeling so sad and even 3 days later I don't feel ready to go out and be normal. Orin was such a wonderful greyhound and his time with us was way too short but his memories will stay with us forever.
Still on a doggy theme but a lighter note, this is a layout I did at crop of Archie. Archie is my daughters dog and is allegedly a labradoodle with a few extra dreadlocks. Little Ben having grown up surrounded by our hounds had wanted his own dog for so long and they promised him after the honeymoom/holday last year they would start looking. Through some mutual friends they heard about Archie who at just a year old needed a new home.
I think Ben would still prefer to have Gangley or Mojo and has been known to ask if we can swap LOL but as Archie calms down and Ben grows up they will be a perfect partnership, that is if Archie can be persuaded to leave his Mum's side such a Mummy' boy!
Quickly grabbed the camera yesterday to take these photo's of Belle and Twizzle who have hardly left each others side this week. On Tuesday we heard Twizzle making the most awful sad mewing noises totally heartbreaking and since then she has been trying to comfort the pack and us. Twizzile whilst not blessed with the biggest brain has the biggest heart and intuitively knows when you need comforting. You would imagine looking at these photo's that she is an older dog taking care of baby Belle when she in fact she is only 1 year older than Belle.
