A Dog's Last Will and Testament

Before humans die, they write their last will and testament and give their home and all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws I could do the same, this is what I’d give:

To a poor and lonely stray I’d give my happy home, my bowl, my cozy bed, my soft pillows and all my toys;

The lap, which I loved so much, and the tender loving hands;

The hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice which called my name.

I’d will to the sad and scared shelter dog the place I had in my human’s loving heart of which there seemed no bounds.

So when I die, please do not say, “I will never have a pet again for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.” Instead, go find an unloved dog. One whose life has held no joy or hope and give my place to him.

This is the only thing I can give – the love I left behind.

This is my inheritance; my Last Will and Testament.

We hope that you will consider giving another deserving greyhound a special home this holiday season!


  1. What a wonderful will-must share it :)

  2. Lovely. Makes me ponder about the statements some of us make on the loss of a beloved dog..... yes we should go and find a stray, and the greyhound is such a beauty.
