We let Scarlet go shortly after loosing Rupert, her appetite had been diminished and her weight had been going down hill, we did not want to let her get to the point where she wasn't enjoying life anymore. Scarlet's favorite thing was to lounge in front of the fireplace in the winter.  Her presence remains here at Shannon Down through her granddaughter Margaery.

We let him go to the Rainbow Bridge on January 6, 2017 after he had thrown a blood clot in his leg, paralyzing the leg. He spent his last few days being loved on and catered to, but his foot started to deteriorate with no blood supply and we let him go peacefully on a Friday morning.

Syrio was a wonderful boy and had such fun racing.  Sadly, he passed away before he turned 3 years old. Donna was out of town and the pet sitter called to tell her he had passed away.  He had probably been bitten by a snake.

Murphy was a wonderful dog who really made us fall in love with racing and race bred Whippets.  He was our 'old man' in the Shannon Down household and never had a sick day in his life that we can remember. He was still in great physical shape when we let him go but his mind was failing him, we made the hard decision to let him pass before his mind was to far gone. The house is not the same without our 'Old Muffin'.

Tatsu developed Idiopathic Dilated Cardiomyopathy, most likely due to a previous virus that attacked his heard and was in Congestive Heart Failure as a result.  He was laid to rest on December 31, 2012 and though he was lost far to soon, we can at least know that he is again with his brother Shinju at the bridge.  He is greatly missed by the Shannon Down family, David and Renee.  Run fast and free sweet Tatsu.

Brooks was an amazing dog in the show ring, on the track and especially at home.  He is the first dog that Krystyl finished a Championship on all by herself, he helped her win Best Junior Handler at one of our National Specialties and he loved to race.  At home he was a sweetheart, he loved to chase frisbees and balls and would keep bringing them back even when he was so tired he could only trot after them.  He made it to his 10th birthday and then started to get sick.  We believe, after running tests, that he had liver cancer and it had already progressed to far to treat.  We let him go on July 30th, 2012, a day that will always be sad in our memories.  Chase those frisbees Brooks, and we hope you are running on sandy race tracks again.

Daisy was our first black and white Whippet, and when Kevin moved in with Anita he obviously needed another Whippet companion so we let Daisy go to stay with him and Anita.  Daisy was the most devoted mother and just an incredibly behaved girl, having never done a single thing wrong since we got her at 10 weeks old.  Sadly it was discovered that Daisy had a hemangiosarcoma on her heart when it ruptured.  We got to spend a few days with Daisy ourselves and then she spent her last day being pampered and loved on by Anita and was euthanized comfortably in her home.  She will be greatly missed by many people, and she has left a hole in all our hearts.  Click here for Daisy's page.

Kevin was bred by Kiesha Cramwer & loved very much by us, after he finished competing in the show ring, on the coursing field and at the races, he retired to his wonderful home with Anita.  He was euthanized on Halloween when he took a turn for the worse, due to kidney failure.  Anita gave him a wonderful life and we couldn't have asked for any more than that.  He was pampered and loved more than any dog could be.  We will always remember him and how he introduced us into the world of Whippets.   Click here for Kevin's page.
