Here is a lovely poem written by Denise Dubarbier from Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare…

Jake

I didn’t really want you, I really wasn’t sure,
And I admit I had my doubts as you walked through that door.

Not small or cute or fluffy with big soft puppy eyes But tall and thin and boney with bald pink bulging thighs.

You weren’t the kind I had in mind, not in any way,
Perhaps it would be better if I took you back today,
Before we know each other, it really won’t be kind
To keep you here for one more day and then to change my mind.

But against all my better judgment I decided you could stay
And quickly I discovered you were kind in every way.
Your gentleness and patience really stole the show
Why, these dogs are wonderful, I must let others know.

You’re my gentle giant, who just needed the chance,
To show us all what you could be, to wipe away the history,
Dispel our preconceptions that put us all to shame,
And so we came to know and love what lies beneath that frame.

And now I’ve come to understand
What I missed right from the start,
That greyhounds need that great deep chest
To house their great big hearts.
