  1. Some of you may remember the sweet senior girl who stayed with us earlier this year after her Mom broke a hip and had to be in the hospital and then rehab. In May, out of the blue we had a call that came through the "neighbor grapevine" that someone in our community had a greyhound and needed to find a sitter for an extended period. Knowing that we had greyhounds, one of the neighbors contacted us, and later that day Bella was hanging out here with Petunia. Petunia and Bella were instant BFF's and it was just like she had always been here. We fell in love with Bella immediately, and quickly decided that if she couldn't return home for any reason that she could stay here forever. Her owner recovered and Bella eventually returned home. Petunia and Bella had one play date over the summer, but the AZ heat in summer is not conducive to much playing. Bella also attended "The Golden Girls Birthday Party" in July to celebrate the July birthdays of Trolley, Petunia, and Bella. We kept in touch with Bella's Mom and knew that she was having continued issues with her back legs, and she became progressively worse over the past few weeks. This morning, her Mom had to make the heartbreaking decision to send her to The Bridge. Bella is responsible for Kate being here now, because it became very obvious when she was here that Petunia needed a sister. Chris and I both feel like we've lost another of our own hounds. Bella's Mom is not on GT and does not use a computer, so we wanted to make sure that she was remembered here. Run-free, Bella and go find Rocket. Tell him I sent you and he will show you around up there. You will be missed by everyone who ever met you.

  2. We are having our traditional 4th of July greyhound party but putting a new spin on it this year. In the past, Rocket hosted this party for his friends and those friends who couldn't handle the noise of fireworks. With Rocket's passing in October and the arrival of Petunia this year, we are instead having a birthday party for the Golden Girls, all of whom have birthdays in July. Our friends who usually come here to avoid fireworks can't be here today, but we are thinking about them and missing them, wishing they were able to be here too. (Conner and Val we miss you) So, the first picture is a teaser with more to come later. From left to right - Trolley who turned 12, Petunia who will be 11, and our friend Bella who will also be 11. To quote Petunia - "I ain't wearing no stinking tiara......oh hell no...." More to come later tonight.
  3. Our visitor, Bella has settled in like she's always lived here. She's been here for 2 weeks as of yesterday. She has roached a few times but tonight I finally got a decent pic of our guest enjoying her stay. Sadly for us, she may be leaving us tomorrow to go back home, but we will make sure that she and Petunia get some playtime scheduled since they have hit if off like long lost friends. We are going to miss this girl. Sorry for the dark pic.
  4. Petunia had a play date today with Bella, the hound we were taking care of when her owner broke a hip. The girls were excited to see each other although there wasn't enough "play" to take any pictures. We mostly watched them sleep on beds while we talked with Bella's owner. Bella's owner had the book with all of her records and we found that her racing name was Phoenix Chomper. Her daddy was none other than Dave The Dog! I'm thinking that Dave The Dog's owner either is or used to be here on GT but don't remember if it was his racing owner or retirement owner. I think it's cool that Bella is one of Dave The Dog's offspring. I seem to remember that Dave The Dog was pretty entertaining and was pretty popular here when his owner posted things about him . Just curious if his owner is still here on GT. (edited to fix typo) Bella looks a lot like her daddy.
  5. Petunia and Bella waited until the hottest part of the day to go sunbathing.
  6. Everyone, meet Bella! She looks a lot like another Bella we all know and love here. Bella's Mom fell and broke her hip a few days ago and is going into rehab for a while. Bella is 12 and will be staying with us until her Mom is better and back at home. She and Petunia became fast friends today. Bella lives in our development less than a mile from us, but we had never met or seen her before. We got an email this morning that sort of came through the grapevine asking if we knew anyone who could watch a greyhound while her owner was in the hospital. A few phone calls later, Bella is relaxing in our living room. She is a real sweetheart. Based on her crazy ear maneuvers and her face, I'm guessing she is related to Rocket, but I don't have any info regarding her racing name yet. We will work on that to see if she's a Gable Dodge or Dodgem By Design girl. So, if you see Chris or I posting pictures of her, she is a visitor!
  7. In the almost 4 years we have had Bella, we've heard her bark twice (other than in her sleep). Once in the first week we had her when the doorbell was rung for the first time; once when a neighbor dog was causing a big ruckus in the hall. Then there was tonight. I was waiting for DH at the train station (we only have the one car so that's the deal) and the guy in front of me was out of his car leaning against his back bumper waiting for someone. Bella perked up upon seeing him, started growling and then let out a big "WOOF!" She continued to growl and bark at him until he met his passenger and drove off, which was just as DH was getting to the car. I take her with me to the train station pretty often and she's never reacted to anyone like that. There didn't seem to be anything particular about him - he was decently dressed, probably mid 20's, Hispanic, clean-shaven - she's seen thousands of men like him. But I got the impression that there was something she didn't like and she was going to protect her mom! :beatheart Thanks Bella dear.
