After Falcon's death, we found ourselves without a greyhound in the house for the first time in 12 years, and it was AWFUL! So we told our group we wanted to adopt a brood, and if there was a second hound who would be a good match for her and for us, we would be happy to have two. We are so lucky that they matched us with Lucia, who will be eight in May. She ran 69 races and has two litters registered. They also matched us with Henry, who was born in her second litter. He will be two next week, and he doesn't have any races entered in the database.
It's been so much fun getting to know them! They are both mellow, affectionate, and very people oriented. Lucia spent a lot of time in her crate at first, but has now discovered the beds in other rooms. Henry has destroyed a few stuffies already and has taken up nitting. Lucia definitely rolls her eyes at him sometimes, but tolerates his antics or tells him to cut it out the way only his mother could. It's only been about a week and I know their personalities will continue to come out over time.

Welcome, Lucia and Henry!
