News & Events
Please help us honour and remember all of the wonderful Greyhounds that SAGA has brought up from the US into loving homes here in Southern Alberta. All of them are precious, all have made huge impacts on their Forever Homes and none will ever be forgotten.
We know that these Greyhounds are chasing the eternal bunny over the Rainbow Bridge.
Beau (Plain Delay): November 26, 2000 - March 23, 2013
Aurora (Northern Aurora): March 28, 2000 - March 11, 2013
Aurora was our second greyhound and her most favorite place was at the cottage. One acre fully fenced and loads of fun to run after the greys checked the perimeter out to ensure no one had been in the yard and perfect for a greyhound to run free. You couldn’t really even say the word and her ears would stand up. She was never alone so I’ve chosen her favorite pastime – finding shade and sleeping! Aurora is the brindle greyhound sleeping in the middle.
Vern (Arjo Vern): May 14, 2000 - December 7, 2012
Let’s choose to remember Vern as a character. Those who attend the Meet & Greets regularly will know that Vern had a singular focus – food. One Saturday, while we were socializing, Vern quietly discovered that if you nibbled the corner off of a bag of dog food, stacked in a pallet near where we were, the kibble sifted out in a steady stream… enough that a hungry hound could eat it as fast as it came out. Thank you, Vern!
Bongo: December 2, 2002 - December 6, 2012
Bongo was a shy timid girl who was scared of her own shadow when she first arrived in her Forever home.
She slowly adjusted to becoming a part of her family and surprised everyone that knew her when she would come to them for a scratch behind the ears.
it was a very sad day when she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge , she was dearly loved.
Run free Bongo run free.
Yogi Bear (Iza Scatdog): July 8, 2004 - March 29, 2012
We are sadly mourning the passing of the wonderful and sweet boy Yogi. Yogi was returned to SAGA due to changes in his family and was fostered, and then adopted, by Dan Boileau. Dan had fallen in love with Yogi while fostering him and knew that his status as an older dog might make him harder to adopt out. So he went ahead and adopted him! It wasn't a hard decision to make
Yogi had been having stomach issues, and no amount of changes to diet, supplements etc., seemed to do make any difference of give Yogi any relief. Sadly, Dan was given the bad news that Yogi had a very rare form of cancer, Histiocytic Sarcoma, and he made the very difficult, but right decision to put Yogi out of his pain. We know that Yogi is enjoying Timbits as we speak while romping like a pup over the Rainbow!
Yogi will be remembered for his excellent rooing skills, click HERE to hear Yogi rooing from the Rainbow Bridge.
