Special Pre-Friday Hound Blogging

A while back we told you about Genie, the twenty year old greyhound--which according to our Vet is 120 year or so in human years, but who's counting? Sadly, we've just found out that Genie has passed away.

BRADENTON - A Bay Area canine celebrity has passed. Genie, the 20-year-old greyhound, died early this morning at her home in Bradenton. Genie is the dog that got her very own birthday bash a few months ago just as she was turning 20. Her owners, Neena and Tim Derf, say she was happy and lively right up to the end -- she even went to a greyhound party yesterday. The Derfs and others think Genie was likely the oldest greyhound in the world, and they are grateful that her story may have helped a few greyhounds out there get adopted.
