Lil Ally 12/22/98-12/16/08

GPA-Richmond lost one of it's own this week. Lil Ally was loved by all who met her.
Her owner/mother, Nerice, said it best:
"There will never be another dog quite like Ally. She was so incredibly special. She loved to be loved and to give love- She always wanted to be in my lap or in my arms, despite the fact that she was no small girl. I remember the day we picked her out at PRH- she was supposed to be my parents dog and while I knew I would love her, I just never foresaw how much she would come to mean to me and how much of my heart she would be taking with her when she left this world. The longer I had her the more she wormed her way in my heart until it was completely hers.

Nothing I can write will ever be able to truly capture the love I felt and still feel for my amazing girl. She touched so many, was a great ambassa-dog for greyhound adoption, and is already missed more than I can even begin to describe."

*GPA-Richmond wants to honor all greyhounds lost throughout the year. They are all special. Please email with pictures/bios if you would like a tribute.
