Dearly missed by Michele, Nathan and Quinne
Loving That Val
After nearly eight years of love, laughter, and on-demand check scratching, we said goodbye to Valsora, our big red brindle boy, on July 5, 2009.
Run, Val, run!
Val was family time-keeper and precision alarm clock, world-class napping champion, and winner of all dream races.
He was secret defender of the couch, master counter surfer, and lover of all things chocolate or coffee flavored.
Val was a dancer, a prancer, a jokester, and beloved confidant.
He was a fierce wolf in his daydreams, a cat-like connoisseur of sunbeams and fluffy beds.
Conqueror of locked food bins, zippered lunch bags, hidden candy stashes; friendly and gracious to all creatures except squeaky toys.
Brave and beautiful, he survived encounters with guinea pigs, rabbits, robins, raccoons, and possums; survived an emergency splenectomy; survived chemotherapy.
Run, Val,run! Good boy! Turn your head and laugh with your greyhound friends as you always did. We’ll catch up with you later.
With all our love,
Michele, Nathan and Quinne
