Abby Claydon, beloved companion and retired professional racing greyhound, died peacefully at home on January 1, 2011 due to infirmities of old age. She was 14 ½ years of age.
The fawn daughter of John Levi and Deluxe Fantasy was born July 2, 1996 and was the litter mate to sister Touchdown Kid and brother Jazzy Sax. Their whereabouts are unknown. Abby was an accomplished racer performing at Plainfield Greyhound Park in Plainfield, Connecticut until her retirement at age 4. She lived in Marlborough and Ellington, Connecticut and summered at Saratoga Springs, New York during the summer racing season, though never actually attending the races.
She is survived by long time companion, Jake Claydon, also a retired former racing greyhound. She enjoyed lounging in the sun, sleeping on the bed and working the crowd for any scraps or handouts available. Her key to longevity was her daily walks, keeping the weight off, and good luck.
