My Grey Girl, Junebug

Recommended Posts

Guest Mommy2Junebug

Good morning, GreyTalk!

 

Last night, my boyfriend and I officially became parents to a beautiful, 3-year-old Greyhound girl who we named "Junebug."

We got her through Greyhounds Only, in the Chicago IL area. She comes from Dairyland Race Track in Kenosha, WI. We'd been discussing and saving for a dog for over a year, and went to a couple of Meet 'n' Greet events to learn more about the Greyhound breed. We met Bug there, and well... it was love at first sight!

 

Our adoption process has been wonderful, and we really found a caring community with all the local Greyhound owners. Most of all, we're thrilled with our beautiful dog! She is such a love... and such a good girl...

 

Our foster mom / adoption rep recommended I check out this site. I'll definitely be posting more as our girl grows up! Take care all!

 

Vanessa :)

"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

Hi pokealong! I remember you :) "Bug" is settling wonderfully into our place (right now, she's sacked out in the middle of the bedroom carpet, after a nice walk...) She already recognizes her bed, and she slept through the night last night... Even with the thunderstorms! She's eating normal amounts, and generally seems very calm and content. If our first 48 hours with her are any indication, she's going to be a wonderful dog!

 

Thanks everyone for the kind welcome :) I'm loving "mommyhood"...

Welcome....I also have a June Bug. We have had June for 4 1/2 years. She will be 9 on July 6th. And, she is a clown. Hope to see you at one of the local events -- either Chicago area or Milwaukee -- so our "bugs" can meet.

 

This is my June Bug.

From Wisconsin -- It's Nancy, Bob, Carla, June Bug and our newby Skorch.... along with Buffy. She's the little hound that meows.

With loving memorials to K.C., Barko and Major Turn -- all playing at the bridge.
