Well hello wonderful hound lovers, thanks for having me! ^_^

 

I'm Jessie, 23 years old and live in Burlington, Vermont. I am the proud human of 3 year old Claire, formerly known as Madame Martini in her racing days. I actually didn't adopt her straight from a rescue, but took her off the hands of a young man who didn't really known what he was getting into when adopting a greyhound, and he was also going into the army. My mom has one herself and so I offered to take her in rather than let her probably get sent back to the shelter.

 

I'm currently training her to jump up into the backseat of my car, and plan to start clicker training when this hot humid weather lets up lol. Someday I'm hoping to adopt another, when I have a place of my own and a better job. In the meantime I love having my own hound to spoil. That's her in my signature, on a walk we had recently.

 

Thanks very much again for having me on here! B)

Welcome from Windsor, Ontario! You know...there are un-written rules on greytalk, one of them being if you make an intro post, you should include pictures!! We are picture freaks! :riphair:lol

Haha alright, I'll post some more. I hope you're ready for a photo overload:

My greyhound, Claire, with Lilly, my mom's hound. She's about 7 or 8 years old now.

We went to a reunion at the adoption group where my mom and I got our hounds. Claire had lots of fun in the pool! ^_^

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
