My dear sweet precious Chance ... It has now been a few days since you went to the Rainbow Bridge and I have spent a lot of time thinking about you and your impact on my life. [caption id="attachment_280" align="alignright" width="300" caption="A handsome boy"][/caption] I remember when I met you for the first time ... originally thinking you were a "replacement" dog for my first Italian Greyhound (IG), Prince of Thieves. You see, Prince was born a month or so before you, so when we (your "Dad" and I) went to pick out our very first IG, his was the litter we were selecting from. I didn't even know about you then ... but sadly, Prince was not with us long at all - God called him home less than 6 weeks later. I realize now that it was God's way of clearing the path to my heart for you to fill it. Your breeder, Mary Ann, still had you because she was thinking of keeping you for herself (you were that special), but she was kind enough to give me a second chance to be an IG mom and sent you home with me to beco ...
