Loved by Joan and Bob Solon

Our beautiful greyhound came to us after a hard life on the racetrack. He rewarded us with affection, loyalty and joy, and in return gave him a peaceful and comfortable life filled with love. Cheyenne was an extraordinary creature who taught us much more than we could have ever taught him.
His quiet elegant presence enriched our lives beyond what we could have ever imagined. He left us too soon, but we are grateful for the years he spent with us and will remember him always with love and a smile.

The following is excerpted from "Last Will and Testament" written by playwright Eugene O'Neill to comfort his wife upon the death of a beloved pet.

"I have little in the way of material things to leave. Dogs are wiser than men. They do not set great store upon things. They do not waste their days hoarding property. They do not ruin their sleep worrying about how to keep objects they have, and to obtain the objects they have not. There is nothing of value I have to bequeath except my love and faith.

 "These I leave to my master and mistress, who I know will mourn me the most . . . Perhaps it is vain of me to boast . . . but I have always been an extremely lovable dog. I ask my master and mistress to remember me always, but not to grieve for me too long. In my life I have tried to be a comfort in times of sorrow, and a reason for added joy in their happiness . . .

 "One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress. Whenever you visit my grave, say to yourselves with regret but also with happiness in your hearts at the remembrance of my long happy life with you: 'Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved.' No matter how deep I sleep I shall hear you, and not all the power of death can keep my spirit from wagging a grateful tail."
