All The Way From Sweden


Recommended Posts

Hi there


My name is Lotta and I live in Sollentuna, just outside of Stockholm (the capitol of Sweden ). I have an Irish Greyhound from PAWS, called Annie. She is 5 years old and the absolutely most gentle and goodhearted dog I`ve ever met. Since she had no intrest in racing, she was left in her cage for most of her early life chewing down her frontteeths to a minimum. :sad1

She came to Sweden through the organisation Neverneverland, who bring mostly Lurchers and Greyhounds from Ireland to be adopted in Sweden.

Unfortunately Annies first family didn`t take too good care of her due to increasing alcoholism and she and the other 2 greys were in quite poor condition when the situation was brought to light...


Well now she`s got her health and condition in order and will live the rest of her life with me :love2


Sighthounds and especially greyhounds are surprisingly not that huge in Sweden and apart from a forum for people who`d adopted dogs, there aren`t any "greytalk"-forums closer by. So, since I absolutely adooore greys, I thought this would be a nice place to see pictures and hear other greylovers talk about their babies! :wub:


I also thought this would be a perfect place to practise my english, so please bare with me for any misspelling I might do... :blink:

Welcome Lotta from Ontario Canada!!! Annie is beautiful and looks very happy to have found her forever home. Nice pics, especially the one with the lake.


PS - your English looks good to me! Try Swedish on any of us and I can guarantee we won't have a clue! At least I can do French....

Another warm welcome from Canada...your English is excellent...Canadian spelling resembles Britain more than the US so may see the same word spelled differently on this forum.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Welcome from Virginia! Your girl is beautiful.

Missing my sweet girl Scout. My snuggler, my chow-hound, my kissy girl.
It never thunders at the Bridge, and your food bowl is ALWAYS filled.

So strange not living in Atty World. I was a love struck handmaiden to your every whim.

Hello Lotta. I also lived for several years in Stockholm - without a greyhound - and am now in Australia. Watch out for Annie with all those hares about! We loved Sweden and hope to return one day. Meanwhile, I might need to find a Swedish greyhound group to practice my Swedish...
