Hi Guys!

I've posted a little bit on here, but I figure I should introduce myself. I'm Maddie from Charleston, SC. I'm a student at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) working on my Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. I love physical therapy and am so excited to be working towards a career with so much hope! I'm one of the younger members on here (early 20s) and a first-time greyhound owner, so I have much to learn! Thanks to many who contribute to this site; it's been a huge help both in decided to adopt and since I've adopted.

 

One of the main questions I get asked is how I came to own a greyhound. Honestly, thank the internet! :P I wanted a good apartment dog, and I literally googled just that. Greyhounds came up on basically every list, so I decided to check them out. I became more and more convinced that this was the breed for me, googled to find an adoption/rescue group in my area, and the rest is history. I adopted Gatsby (DKC Great Gatsby) on 7.13.13. He's been an amazing dog and a great companion! He's a big sweet heart who just loves to be with me. :) Couldn't be more pleased with my dog and the breed in general!

"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

Congratulations! And if you don't know, there's a big greyhound event coming up in your state at the end of September! -- Beach Bound Hounds in Myrtle Beach.

 

Thanks! And no, I didn't know that. Thanks for the link!

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

I knew he had to be a Dodgem by Design pup with that face and markings of the eyeliner and he is! My Cruise is his half brother, along with several other thousands pups, and had the exact same face when he was younger. Congrats and welcome to the world of greyhounds :)
