Hi there! Figured my diarrhea question shouldn't be my only introductory post ... so, meet Moon!

Moon, previously known as Gable Moonlight, is the most wonderful hound. Even though I've only had her twelve days, she's already my best friend. She's quiet (haven't heard a bark or roo yet!), walks like a doll on her leash (our 'Moonwalks'), is friendly to every human and dog we've met, and loves to cuddle. And sleep. And cuddle while sleeping. Oh, and she sleeps with her eyes open and her nictitating membrane partially closed, which makes her look like she's possessed by demons.

 

Moon has already claimed 2/3rds of my couch and pretty much all of my bed, and I wouldn't have it any other way. When she rests her head on my leg or my arm or anywhere against me, I'm happy. I'm still in new mom mode, of course, worried about poop this and mysterious skin rash that (vet says possibly ringworm, possibly just irritation in an area of hair loss), and I never cease to be amazed at how much more relaxed Moon is compared to me.

 

Anyway, that's Moon. And I'm Carolyn. Don't worry about me, Moon is the cute one.

Thanks everyone! A few of you mentioned that you know of/own 'Gable dogs.' I'd sure love to find out if anyone has any of Moon's littermates. Not sure why, guess I'm just curious.

 

And here's another picture: Moon rolled off the couch and just ... stayed there. She's a goof.

Welcome! Moon is very cute, and I love her name.

 

Gable Dodge is a very, very famous greyhound sire, with 10,000+ offspring, so you will find many relatives here -- I see he is further back in Moon's pedigree but on both sides. That's the lineage that is marked in Moon's racing name. Molotov and Oshkosh Racey/Flying Penske and Fortress are also very famous sires in her background -- she has VERY elite bloodlines! http://www.greyhound-data.com/d?z=HdYZ3H&d=gable+moonlight&sex=&color=&birthyear=&birthland=

 

Others here can give good advice about finding littermates. I see above that at least two of Moon's have also been adopted so you could try to get a contact via the adoption groups.

 

My Beth has Gable Dodge and Fortress as grandpas and says hi.

I noticed Moon's elite family history, but genes aren't everything. The only home stretch my Moon is a champ at is stretching all over my home, and the only rail she hugs is the side rail of the couch. :P

 

But it's just as well, because now she gets to have a lazy country retirement (though the snow may come as a bit of a shock).

 

Thanks for the info--I know she has a couple thousand half siblings and cousins and so on, but finding actual littermates--pups she might actually recognize from her puppyhood--would be neat. I'm on the case.

 

But mostly I'm just trying to help her settle and find a diet she can tolerate. I'm glad to hear that everyone likes the Gable dogs; it doesn't take much time with one to see why!

:wave from Ontario.

 

All three of my hounds came to me out of Vermont.

 

Nixon is a 'Flying Penske' son...so does that make him Moons Step grandfather???? Or a second cousin, twice removed?

 

Nancy...Mom to Sid (Peteles Tiger), Kibo (112 Carlota Galgos) and Mario (2nd Chance Rescue).   Missing Casey, Gomer, Mona, Penelope, BillieJean, Bandit, Nixon (Starz Sammie),  Ruby (Watch Me Dash) and especially  Nigel (Nigel), waiting at the Bridge
