Carley, who raced under the name Iruska Carlyn at 56 pounds, was our first Greyhound. She was born in August 1998 and came to live with us in December 2001. Carley was a red fawn with huge dark eyes and a white face.
Carley loved everyone and everything. She began meets and greets in the summer of 2002. She greeted every person as a friend she hadn’t seen in a while.
Her favorite toys were stuffed animals, especially our grandson’s teddy bear. Carley learned early on she couldn’t keep the teddy bear unless she could trick us by laying down with her front legs crossed over it.
Carley never met a piece of food she didn’t love. Scrambled egg in the morning, yogurt in the evening with special treats of bananas, peaches, carrots and hot peppers made for a perfect day.
Carley loved shopping in the cat toy aisles. Small fuzzy mice fit perfectly behind her teeth, leaving only the tail hanging out. Her other passion was purple Mardi Gras beads.
In June 2011, Carley was diagnosed with an enlarged heart. Medication kept her with us until Nov. 18, 2011.
She is greatly missed by all.
