The Boys Are Here: Cinco & Aiden


Recommended Posts

Welcome Cinco and Aiden. :confetti Formerly of St Louis Rescued Racers, now of CT Camp Greyhound. "Cinco" fka Ringo fka UCME Ringneck, will turn four in August. "Aiden" fka SE's Aiden T is celebrating birthday #4 today :balloonparty For his birthday, I gave him his forever couch :wub:. April is National Greyhound Adoption month, perhaps I've gone a bit overboard? :) Introductions with camp residents Seamie and Sorella went really well. Sorella is thanking me profusely for KNOT bringing in any more wimmin hounds, she is ok with the boys. Everyone slept through the night, had breakfast, and are resting up before baths later today. Cinco is incredibly smart, too smart, and I hope I can keep up with him. Aiden is different smart and the perfect balance to Cinco. He's a little goofy, but they are both full of love (kisses this morning) and I am encouraged that one or both will be excellent therapy dogs. Our floors are once again littered with stuffies and smiles and kisses from young'uns.

Here they come!!

Lisa rode shotgun with me to meet the hauler. Her DH was thrilled and relieved that there were only two greyhounds on board :rofl Two greyhounds, and thirdyateelebenty LWFs. Srsly. omg

Elaine (of Dave and Elaine, Dog Runner Pet Transport :bow2http://www.dogrunnerpettransport.com/ ) is holding brindle Aiden, I have

white-nosed Cinco.

Aiden is a champion roacher. He lowers his front half down and nests and ruffles the bed and then HURLS his hind end down on his side, it's hard to describe and hard to believe while watching him do it. :lol

Cinco with Seamie :beatheart I see how frail Seamie has become but good for him, at 12.10 he's still going. Seamie :kiss2 Notice the stuffy in the hallway :lol

My buddy this morning. First night I've slept well since 12/31/11.

And, after breakfast. All is well.

My heartfelt thanks to StLRR, who have been a delight to work with. :bow2 Their organizers and foster peeps go above and beyond and made this so incredibly easy for me. Dog Runner transport was fabulous as well, keeping in contact with me before and throughout the haul and arriving to the minute of their ETA. These young'uns for me are like starting over again, in 2002 Pal was fresh off the track and 3.5 years old. My door remains open to seniors in need and I know that these young'uns will welcome them as well. So, let the new chapter begin. :yay

Jan, thanks for all the great pics - just yesterday I was wondering if I'd lost track of time and missed a big post from you on their arrival!

 

Looks like everyone's settling well, and I hope your two brindle boys bring you many years of fun and love :grouphug Congratulations! :)

Isn't that hauler awesome! Hey I'm glad to have been a part of bringing happiness to you again! I have enjoyed emailing with you these past 2 weeks & feeling the excitement. Rescued Racers are a lot of fun to work with & their main focus is the dogs!
Having fostered both Cinco & Aiden, you are going to have so much fun with them. Yep, Cinco is very smart. Aiden is so sweet. I love Cinco's coloring. Keep me posted.

It's is so nice to see how well they have settled in. Seamie looks very comfy sharing the bed with his new brother. They look like they have been with you forever.

Yea! I'm glad the boys made it!!

 

I love the picture of Cinco with the statue. That dog doesn't miss ANYTHING! Seamie will have an excellent trainee postal inspektor!

 

So happy he's sleeping with you. Isn't he the biggest snuggler?

 

Wish I would have had more time to spend with Aiden, but I've only heard good things about him. He spent the 10 minutes he was at my house crashed out on a dog bed like he'd been there forever.
