We Officially Chipped Today!


Recommended Posts

My DF Bryan and I adopted Elena in the beginning of October. After we had her about 6 weeks, we realized she had some mild separation anxiety (or at least didn't like being alone while we worked all day). We decided to foster to see if that made her feel better. We got our first foster in the beginning of December, and immediately Elena was happier. Although we didn't keep that first foster, we decided to keep fostering with intent.

 

It was a tough time - with 5 crazy :crazy cats and a picky greyhound (we wanted another female, she did NOT agree) it wasn't easy to find a match, but we decided to keep Dynamo !!! His only real issue has been an occasional inclination to chase kitties, but we have made great strides on that. We celebrated his 6th birthday on Tuesday, and signed the adoption papers today! :yay

 

Check out this boy's race record, looks like about 7 stakes wins. And he raced through the end of 2006, so he had many more races that aren't listed here.

 

Here are some pics of the new boy:

 

 

Looking regal

Trotting with his ball

He loves his ball

But he tires of playing quickly. Look at that tongue :wub: I haven't gotten a picture yet, but he definitely suffers from ETS

I hope doggie heaven is paved with peanut butter and the bunnies are slow. Run free and happy.

Look like the perfect pair. They are beautiful, but then again I have a fawn and black combo too.

When we started this whole thing, all I wanted was a brindle. But obviously personality is more important! The fawn and black combo is very striking!

Thank you! I guess Elena never got her own special introduction thread. She is so unloved :cry1

He is a handsome boy! Not black, but a handosme fellow nonetheless. :lol:

 

Well, you can't win 'em all. Can he be an honorary black dog???
