HI, just wanted to post an introduction. My Dh Adopted our first Greyhound about a month ago and this Saturday I have my very own Grey Boy! We are long time dog people having been involved in showing for the last 35 yrs. I am a retired groomer and we have gone through a hard time recently having lost 3 old dogs in the last couple of years. Two of them were sighthounds. ( a Whippet and Deerhound) We were down to having one dog, which isnt really a dog LOL!, Smooch our 7 lb. Peke. After doing some research we decided to get a rescue Grey. We couldnt be happier with our decision. First we brought home LusaLu , an almost 4 yr. old brindle girl. Unfortunately the day before we were to bring her home my mother became ill so my DH was on his own while I went to ehlp her out for a week! It ended up being a good thing as far as the dog and my DH went. They are bonding very closely in large part to the initial "togetherness" . I kenw when we went into this there would soon be another added to the family and let rescue know what I was looking for. "Draco" couldnt be a better match for me! He is a pretty , sweet, black boy. I am looking forward to doing some obedience working with him and getting a therapy dog certification.

Welcome to GT and the wonderful world of greyhounds! As you can probably see from this from looking at the posts here, they can become quite the obsession!

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." -- Unknown

I can see that some of you have been here quite some time and are really active on the forum! I am limiting us to the two Greys( chanting that over and over and over) We have for years had many dogs while we were showing and I am ready to keep the numbers down so I have a lot of time for the ones we have. We also have Miniature horses and a couple of Goats to share time with. So, I will be obsessed for sure but will not give into that addiction of having more no matter how wonderful they are <only two , only two, only two) and how often I see just one more that might like to come home with me, haha :ghplaybow

Congrats--Your world will never be the same. You could stick with 2 greyhounds, like me, but foster for your local rescue group. The rewards are priceless........

I said that too. For a several years it worked too. Until I heard about a special boy who had been up for adoption for over 2 years and

no one on the horizon. We "chipped" and it was the best thing we could of done. Good luck with your vow. :lol

I would love to do this actually, having done Peke rescue for lots of years, but I am too far off the beaten path for the groups here to place fosters with. Maybe sometime when one needs longer term fostering.
