Introducing The Lovely Miss Jaynie


Recommended Posts

We have had a strict limit of two hounds. Made sense for all kinds of reasons. Until a certain young brood pointed out just how silly this was.

Please welcome the lovely, playful, inquisitive former racer, and super-mom to a bunch of young Flying Stanleys – the beautimous Bart's Orchid :wub: call name Jane (now Jaynie) who arrived yesterday (Sep 10) in her forever home with us.


This well traveled momma is welcomed by whippie Rickie, and Arlie who is thrilled to have another grey to play with. They have already done zoomies together in the backyard. (Goodbye what there is left of the lawn, forever.)


Many thanks to Doug for loving her and taking such good care of her during the first part of her life. It shines through her.


To Teddy for taking her in while she waited for plans to sort themselves out, and, maybe, for teaching her to expect treats while watching TV on the couch. (This would be the same Teddy who said "she's a tad plump" :lol .)


To Kim and Dianne who didn't hesitate when I asked if Jaynie could join their hounds' haul to PA, and who let me join them in welcoming the pups off the haul, and spending time in a greyhound home while their fosters were inspected and sent off to be spoiled. :kiss2


And to Kim again for inviting us to stay with her family and hounds so that Jane could rest in the company of other greys, and we could spend a wonderful, albeit short, time yakking it up together. :kiss2


We are thrilled and privileged to have this lovely, sweet, wonderful girlie with us.


Knowing the :rules here are pictures from Jane's arrival. Thank you Cathy from Keystone, you are a much better photographer than I will ever be.


Here they come:




Here they are:



Jaynie, just off the hauler:

Better of Jaynie (look at those sweet earsies):



She was the best little traveler on the way back to Toronto - slept most of the way, even roached!


She's settling in so well, a bit picky about food, but some natural, good quality beef stew food mixed with rice did the trick tonight. (It smelled better than what I'm eating.) We'll get the food thing figured out in time.


We are overjoyed to have this sweetie in our family. :inlove


(Edited to increase the original, tiny font size. That was like this.

And again, to add another picture.)

Looking forward to meeting your new girl. You should come to the picnic. We could have a mini-reunion.
