From Fen Bank Greyhound Sanctuary in the UK:
Sponsor dog Woody told us on Tuesday that it was time for him to go. He hadn't been well for some time but kept rallying and his indomitable spirit would not let this grand old gentleman give in.
He loved people and would snuggle up to anyone who showed the slightest inclination to step into his kennel, but to the end no small dog was safe from his attentions and he came into Fen Bank because no bird or small dog was safe from his Houdini like ability to escape, damage, or maim some unsuspecting creature and then return doing the doggy equivalent of whistling nonchalantly as if nothing had happened.
So we kept him in the kennel latterly swathed in Duvets from which two soft brown eyes peeped out and somewhere under the mountain of bedding a tail wagged and he almost spoke "Sorry I can't get up, I'm not feeling myself today." And for the last time, the look which said it's time for me to go.
He was special to many people in different ways and for different reasons and we will all miss this grand old man who sleeps forever at Fen Bank.
