  1. I was pointed out to me today that I have been remiss in introducing our new girl. She's been home since 9/7 so I think she's here to stay!! After Atom crossed the Bridge in June we were really missing that kind of energy in the house. And losing him the way we did - to a congenital heart issue - was really wrenching. He was so young and had a whole life ahead of him that was cut so short. We kind of felt cheated out of all the years we weren't going to have him. So we began to look for another young dog - though KNOT another puppy!!! Our group, like most adoption groups, is really hurting for dogs. The Florida situation and having so many breeders and trainers getting out of the business means there's not the supply of greyhounds out there - particularly in the opposite corner of the country from where most of the dogs are right now. Plus, there's a waiting list of people 20-30 deep, who have put in their applications and paid their money to get a dog. So I started looking at other types of rescues, other breeds, even other countries for a suitable new family member. Nothing seemed like the right fit. On a whim, I contacted Atom's breeder in Kansas to see if any of his litter were going to flunk out of training. She said no, but that there was one sister who she was keeping at the farm due to a minor injury. And we said we'd take her! It was more tyhan a month of waiting before a haul could get arranged and filled, and then the hauling truck broke down in some small town and there was another week of delay! But she finally got here, and we are totally smitten! Here she is at the kennel that day the haul came in. 20190907_184727 by Chris Harper, on Flickr 20190907_160435 by Chris Harper, on Flickr And at home later 20190907_210351 by Chris Harper, on Flickr 20190912_112856 by Chris Harper, on Flickr And a picture of Atom for comparison. 20190604_143333 by Chris Harper, on Flickr Despite them being separated very young - Atom was 12 weeks old when we got him last year - they are *very* much alike! She's got a little softer personality, and doesn't have his boldness, but their expression and mannerisms are really similar. Even her barking voice sounds a lot like his! And she is seriously one of the most gorgeous dogs I've ever seen! Pictures do NOT do her justice. Technically, I think she's listed as a red fawn, but she's so heavily sabled all over that she looks dun in some lights. We are just smitten with our new princess!!
