We Did It! Two Sweet Seniors Have Joined Our Family


Recommended Posts

This is one of those situations that just fell into place. DH and I had said that if a situation arose that 2 hounds needed a home together we would consider them. Rewind to 2 weeks ago....chatting with Petra (Little White Monster's momma :) ), she tells me that Nittany Greyhounds was getting in two senior girls being returned due to no fault of their own. Well, the wheels began to turn, talked to DH about them, he agreed to meet them. I filled out application. Meet the girls last Saturday and there was no doubt in my mind they were to come home with us. Toni at Nittany was wonderful.


So, about the girls: Mitsie, age 9 is a white girl with brindle around her ears and some ticking. This girl is gonna be a hoot!!!! Tons of personality, affectionate and loves to play. Oh, did I mention she is a barker!!! I think she will be the yard police as well as the people police.


Maisie, age 10 is a sweet one eyed brindle gril who will tell you what she wants when she wants it!!! She is smitten with hubby, he is loving it. She is more reserved but once comfortable warms up to you. Oh, yes, she is a barker as well...


We are working on stairs but everything else is down pat since they were already acclamated to a home. Mitise is bonded with Maisie and will look to see where she is or go over and nudge her for reassuarnce.


It is fun to watch and very interesting having a pair hounds that will share the same bed and play with one another. I thought I would have such guilt bringing hounds home so soon after Marx's passing (Sept. 2012), but it's a different feeling, a feeling of peace.


ok, enough rambling, we are elated to have them and feel as though they have always been here. Welcome home sweet girls :)


Mitsie is the white girl age 9 and Maisie is the brindle age 10



Praying for all the missing greys!

Oh, Karen, I'm so happy for you! Those girls will really help you come to terms with your loss, and they are gorgeous!


Maisie reminds me so much of Renie. She was a barker too (and the 'everything' police in this house), but she was our 'Princess' and a very, very sweet girl - and just exactly the same type of brindle with a black nose. Mitsie is just really pretty, and it's wonderful that they love each other so much!


Congratulations! :)

Congrats! Such fun. Seniors are great.

Early last year I took in two eleven year old returns. Meeka had had kidney disease for years, but still made it to one month before she would have turned twelve. She was happy and active to the end. Bubba turned thirteen in October. He has slowed down, but is still a love. He enjoys hanging out in the yard and sometimes chases Mickey for several feet. At times I have caught him running by himself...not fast, not far, but having fun!

Enjoy them!

"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
