A bit about Freddie

Haze is dedicated to Freddie.

Freddie was our beloved greyhound. He came to us from the Greyhound Adoption Program (Queensland) after his racing career and for two years was a beautiful personality in our home.

In December last year he was diagnosed with bone cancer. In February we had to say goodbye to him. Murray and I still miss him every day.

    dear Freddie, I’m sure he is in a happy doggie heaven x

  3. Raelene Giles says:

    RIP Freddie.

  4. I’m in love all over again! What a gorgeous creature. The only possible consolation is to accept you did have Freddie for the time you did. It is easy to see how he enhanced your lives.

  5. We loved him too! Alf still stops at your old letterbox! I’m sure he can still smell his presence!

    He certainly was one of the prettiest looking hounds I’ve ever laid eyes on. It’s beautiful that you can cherish his memory like this. Thank you for sharing this Paula.

  7. Russ says:

    Freddie was a beautiful boy and we all miss his face and cuddles.

      Thanks Russ. And thanks to you and Bron for bringing him into our lives. We are greyhound lovers for life now.

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
