Tudor, taken too soon

It with very heavy hearts we have to give the tragic news that Tudor passed away earlier this week, while under anaesthetic as he was being neutered. He was a happy, affectionate and adorable boy, a kennel favourite who had finished racing and had a lovely home waiting for him.

Born in April 2015, Tudor (Tudor Dynasty) spent much of his puppyhood at Dillymore, where he was much loved by all who looked after him. His racing owners kept him at home for a while, and he was raced at kennels close to them where they walked him regularly, and they are devastated by his loss.

Our thoughts are all at Dillymore who cared for him, his racing owners, and with the couple who were waiting to take Tudor home. They have bravely decided to go ahead with their plans to adopt a greyhound, and they will be taking Nemo home in a few weeks.

The vet practice says that Tudor suffered a heart attack while under anaesthetic, that this is an extremely rare occurrence, and in spite of all their best efforts to save him, they couldn’t revive him. All at the vets are heartbroken.

Sleep tight Tudor, we’ll miss your waggy tail and sweet nature, and you won’t be forgotten by anybody who knew you.

  1. Although we only met Tudor twice, my husband and I felt an immediate connection with him and were smitten. He was a beautiful, gentle and affectionate boy and we were excited to welcome into our home and family and to share our lives together. But it was not to be and we were devastated to hear that he had passed away. Our hearts go out to Sue and the staff at Dillymore, and to Tony and Alan, all of whom had cared for him in his short life. We made the difficult decision to continue our search for a dog and we are pleased to offer Nemo a place in our home and hearts and look forward to a long and happy relationship with him. It is a new chapter in our lives, just a different one. Rest in peace Tudor, we will never forget you

  2. Oh no, I’m so sorry, that really is so sad particularly for the family who were about to take him home, and for all at Dillymore who took care of him, i really am so very sorry.

  3. So sorry to read the sad news about Tudor he was such a handsome and beautiful boy, we visited the kennels a few weeks ago and met him. So sorry that he didn’t get to that new forever home, but I know he had been loved and cared for at Dillymore. You all do a wonderful job.
    Thoughts to for his potential adopters, I know in that position I would be heartbroken and can imagine their sadness.
