Thank you peeps. Granny cooked me a nice gammon joint & then spoilt it by telling me I had to share!!!! I surprised her by visiting upstairs and as she gave me lots of claps & told me how clever I was I am now going up and down like a yo yo! I am very much enjoying sleeping with her too but not so impressed that I have to share her. I am learning very quickly but it is different to when I lived as an only child. I am wearing my Daddy's coat and in house jumper and that makes me feel cosy. Granny tells me & Fergal every day how proud our Daddy would be of us and how much he loved Teddy. She still misses Daddy very badly but we give her lots of snuggles to cheer her up. I hope everyone is keeping well and that I will see some of you in the Spring. Xxx Eoghan

Hi Lucy, thanks hun....am feeling better after having a lovely chat with the Manager at the sheltered accommodation where Alan lives. I think Kate had mentioned to him where Eoghan was going & although he is missing him dreadfully he is delighted he is with family. We spoke about possibly visiting him next year when we are allowed to mix. Emma said all of the residents would love to see Eoghan again and meet all the boys. It might be nice although I would totally understand if Alan would feel too upset and of course I have to think about Eoghan. They were very close which may be why Eoghan is still crying at times, not eating fully and scared of going out. However, he is very friendly and keeps coming for reassuring cuddles and the boys wont leave him at all so are not even coming upstairs to me!! Oh the bliss of having a bed to myself! I am hoping he might feel better after his dental next week. At least he is eating all his treats so that is a positive. Funtime in the sand run would be good. Hopefully next April/May when the weather is warmer and restrictions are lifted. I am sure the boys would love Jet. He is such a sweet boy. Am delighted he is gentle with Mia. They seem to know don't they when they have to be. My heart goes out to Alan. It reminds me that one day unless one is like Prince Philip, or my Dad, that we all get to a point where life winds down more quickly than we would wish. My Mum always said that the ageing process was about loss. It certainly was in her case. It terrifies me which is probably why I keep pushing myself to keep busy whether its work or having multiple boys!!! Maybe I will be more like my Dad. He was 88 today, looks 10 years younger, says he feels no different to when he was 58 and is just a bundle of energy!! Must be the joys of having a partner 26 years younger. Look after yourself hun. Hope you all enjoy the festive season whatever you do. Xxx

Hi seana, I'm positive eoghans previous dad is over the moon at the wonderful home you given him so you're not at fault for anyone's pain. Life can be cruel sometimes. Can we join the sand run trip please as jet loves to see his greyhound pals lol?! Yes mia will be 15 months on the 20th, don't know where its gone! Jet is so good with her and she absolutely adores him xxx

Hi Jess,

I do hope you and Tilly are keeping well. It would be wonderful for them to all get together in the sand run. I would love to see Fuzzbear & Lady again. I will ask Kate and Jo if they can help me re my other 2. I have thought about them so many times and feel I need to know one way or the other what happened to them. I am sure Mel would want me to find out.
It is hard at the moment trying to provide a happy house when all I really want to do is cry.....for Mel, that he didnt get to see Eoghan again, for me because I just hate life without him, for Fergal & Teddy who adored him and now for Eoghan who is naturally confused, upset and missing his home. He is having short periods of crying and wouldnt walk this morning so we only managed about 200 yards!! I didnt push it and will try again tomorrow. It is understandably upsetting for him especially at a much older age. Although I am happy to have my lad home it is tainted by my great upset for Alan. I know it isnt my fault but I hate being the reason for someone else's pain. I know if it wasn't me it would be someone else but that doesn't help much. It doesnt matter how nice the home is, how much food or treats & love one gives, these boys and girls dont analyse their feelings. They simply feel the pain of loss. It is just such a sad situation. If I had known in April 2016 that my family would need me I might not have sold my Mother's house. I could have had all of my babes plus the whole of Daybreaks there but such is life. As my Mum always said one has to live with the consequences of one's actions and choices so choose wisely and act cautiously. Anyway, hopefully the coming days will see him settle more. Just the dental next Friday to get through. Keeping everything crossed that he doesnt find it too stressful. Take care and Merry Christmas. Xx

@sirenmelody

Maybe in the new year we could have a meet up for the siblings in the sand run. As we have details for the ones that have come through Daybreaks, we can always contact as ask if they would like to. I’m sure Shirley will be happy to have them all meet up again.

I know it’s sad that we can’t meet the other two as they will have been rehomed else where however there is greyhound data that you could try and contact as they may know where they were rehomed too if that is something you would want to know about.

Hi Lucy,
I was upset & shocked yesterday when Kate rang with the news. Jo and I were just discussing all of my bunch last week and going through where they all were living as I had no idea and this is when I learned that my girl "Lady" had been returned twice before going with Shirley who I know a little from the kennels. I had no idea about any of it as when I met Lady & was considering taking her it was shortly after that she went out to an older couple and I then went travelling for most of 2017. Of course Shirley won't know yet that she has my girl but hopefully next year she will!! I am upset for my boy as he had a nice Dad and a nice home so unlike Fergal who couldn't wait to come to me I think the next few days will be a bit strange for him as we all adjust. He is somewhat quieter than he was a few years ago but still has a playful side and this is a bit of a shock to poor Teddy Bear who isn't quite sure why he is suddenly the subject of such adoration! Fergal has had love too but it is a bit more a case of well I remember you, you are my brother so been there done that! Fergal is a clone of his Dad personality wise so it will be interesting to see how Eoghan develops. He already knows his new name but it is the 1st time I have had a boy who won't go on the sofa & hasn't shown interest in going upstairs. He didn't have stairs in his previous home & maybe he wasn't trained for the sofa so again it will be interesting to see if that changes. It has been so hard without Mel. I miss him badly as we were always glued together in doors but he had such a big heart and I know he will be watching over us all wishing for success. I wasn't going to plan for 3 again for practical reasons & I am not getting any younger but the position is similar to when I took Fergal. The reality is that Teddy is nearly 12 so whilst I hope we might get another 2 to 3 years the fact is we won't get 6 plus. At least Fergal then wouldn't be alone but of course Eoghan isn't a youngster either. It isn't easy taking on older boys or girls as you know time is more limited but as I told Kate yesterday if I don't process, accept and deal with the downside then I will be alone. I wouldn't want a puppy again at this time in my life and it is just the way the cards have fallen. Even if I only had either Ted or Fergal it is the 1st time ever I haven't felt I could help another boy so quickly but it is different when it's family and although we are all still hurting so much I believe in fate and this is just meant to be. I wish I could have taken all of them in 2016 but I didn't have the space or the money to afford several. It has always played on my mind but I can't change history. At least I know Lady is happy, 2 are with me & I pray Fuzzy is still doing well. Of course I have 2, Saddlers Wolf (boy) & Highfire Melody (girl), who I have no idea about as they never came into DB. I can only pray they are alive & happy somewhere. It is a wonderful experience having blood family. Maybe that is why Mel and I were brought together so our fates would forever be intertwined. I feel so sad for Alan as one day that may well be me having to make the painful decision to no longer have a dog. Although different circumstances, I know the pain of returning a very much loved boy and trying to do the best so my heart goes out to him but I am so grateful that he has given 4 years of love and stability. I will be letting him know how things are going. It is at least a tiny comfort for him rather than wondering where Eoghan is etc. I hope you are all well. Your little one must be growing rapidly...around 15 months now. Where does time go... let us pray that 2021 will be a much kinder year for everyone. Big hugs to Jet as well. Stay safe and Merry Christmas!!! Xxx

I knew it! Didn't want to say anything last night but when I saw who blues dad was and that he'd gone straight to foster I thought I know who his mommy/nanny is! Seana I'm over the moon for you and also in tears as I know how heartbroken you would be over melly, but how wonderful that hes definitely sent you blue to help your pain. Jet, as far as I know doesn't have any children but I love to see anyone he's related to. Hope we can all do roadshows again soon and meet up! Sending you all our love xxx

I do believe in fate. Blue....who will revert hopefully to Eoghan....is another of my grandchildren. I remember him well and was only talking about him and the others with Jo last week. Naturally I am gutted that he is going through this disruption but need I say that he is coming home to be with Gran and his brother and stepbrother!!!There is no way I would allow 1 grandchild to be favoured over another and I know my Melly would want this. Mel did meet him with the others in 2016 so that is something. Maybe he sensed something was amiss and decided he need to go a few weeks ago so his son could come home because I would have been devastated had this happened whilst Mel was still here as I would not have been able to have 4. I am grateful to the gentleman who has given my lad a nice home for 4 years and whilst I can not take away his pain of loss I hope he will take comfort from knowing that our boy will be with his blood family and not just new strangers. I will certainly update him and send photos. It looked as though Blue remembered his brother from the huge wagging tail & sniffs and he also seemed to like Teddy very much.

So having found out recently that my granddaughter is now rehomed locally with Shirley, my 2 grandsons are with me all I can hope for is that Highfire Fuzzy is still well and happy in his home. I am hoping that maybe a family reunion will happen sometime next year in the sand run. That would be so cool but for the moment Christmas without Mel will be far more bearable with yet another reminder of him to look at. Blue has the same pinky bit on his nose as his Dad. Keeping all of our fingers and toes crossed for success.

I am sure Ruth will back me up....if anyone ever gets the opportunity to have real blood family, go for it. It is such a different kind of joy.

Blue was returned to the kennels today. He has been in a home for four years and very sadly his owner is no longer able to take care of him. However, he has been fostered and I am certain this will be his forever home! We wish his previous owner well. He adored Blue and was very upset to have to let him go but did what was best for his lovely boy. Xxx
