Introducing Hobbes And Me


Recommended Posts

Back when I was 13 years old, I saw my first greyhound. It was love at first site :rolleyes: My parents really weren't into the idea of getting one, so I waited. Then I met my husband who never owned a dog and vowed never to, so again I waited. After almost 15 years of waiting and many many compromises with my DH, I am proud to say I am owned by one of these magnificent dogs.

Hobbes came into our home 6 weeks ago today. He has been everything a thought a greyhound would be. He is such a sensitive soul but can be a complete goof when he is a home. We almost didn't get him because he was much older then what we thought we wanted, but it's true when they say the dog picks you. Now I can't imagine not having him, he has even totally changed my DH mind about dogs. Hobbes has him wrapped around his little paw :P He even has been such a good greyhound ambassador my parents a thinking of adopting one.

 

So here's our little man...

Greetings from Florida and congratulations on your new arrival. Hobbes is adorable! I love the picture of him on the bed with the stuffy.

 

Greys are just wonderful. Now you know that first hand.

Hobbes waited a long time too. I'm so glad you finally found each other, and that it's all working out so beautifully. :)

Aaawww, my parents have a Hobbes too. He's a westie though, AKA bait (if you are a greyhound)! :lol Hobbes looks very happy, and they absolutely do pick you. You are both so lucky!

"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

Oh hon, your story is so touching!

How strange that Hobbes waited for you for over a year!! Yes, over a year he waited patiently! Tears of joy here. :grouphug

 

BTW, I'm the same Jiffer on the GRA forum ;)
