Jack. A once in a lifetime dog. Left us just short of his 11th birthday and was active and excited about life until the very last. He ran LGRA at 8 and a half. Coursed after his 8th birthday too. He was AKC #1 lure courser for 2008 & 2009. Only the second male wolfhound to achieve an SGRC title in straight racing...... Finished conformation champion. Could go on and on. But mostly he was a gentle companion and an unexpected wonder.
