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.
