Our Pal Katie

Our friend Katie isn’t feeling great this week. We hope you feel better soon Katie!!!

Katie’s kinda a big deal, a rockstar even… read all about her on her blog at Neversaynevergreyhounds.net.

We are sad to report that Katie passed to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. She is a dog that will be very well remembered and left huge footsteps for other greyhounds to fill.

MACH Never Had Braces UD – 05/17/1998 – 10/21/2010

In her first 15 months off the racetrack, Katie trained and competed, earning AKC Novice, Open, and Excellent Standard and Jumper titles. Katie was the first Master Agility Champion Greyhound. She was the #1 Greyhound in AKC Agility in 2002, 2003, and 2004. She was the #2 Greyhound for lifetime achievement, second only to her brother, Travis. She also earned her Utility Dog obedience title.

I and my hounds joined Katie and her pack for romps, hiking, training and agility trials over many weekends when we lived in Atlanta. Katie wasn’t one to join in on the social aspects of it all. She was just there to work! Her eyes were constantly fixated on her human in anticipation of the next challenge. I don’t think I ever saw her “off”.

It was a great pleasure to know you Katie. Your eager face and spirit will truly be missed.
