He's Here! Introducing A Star Winchester

Several months ago I posted in Watching and Waiting for the first time so I could get help finding out how to preadopt Teddi's littermate. I'd be thinking about it since I brought Teddi home and since Winchester wasn't racing great anymore I knew I didn't have too much time. Sure enough, a few weeks after I preadopted him (officially) Winchester retired. Birmingham is about 10 hours from me and the time just never seemed right--I had to go out of town a few times, I had to settle stuff with my landlord, etc. etc.. Then the truck at McGregor broke and I thought he would never make it here. Two days ago Melony messaged me on facebook and asked if I was ready to get my boy, which of course I answered with a resounding YES and the rest is history! My mom met me in Indy and American Greyhound brought him up on their haul from B'ham. We stayed in a hotel last night so my mom could meet her new granddog and we just got home about 45 minutes ago.


Here he is, A Star Winchester AKA Winchester AKA Chet

Winchester has just fit right in with my little family. He and Teddi are really getting along great and he's a quick study on the ways of retirement (aka the best ways to sleep all of the time). He roached last night and this morning in the hotel room!

He is already roaching now, four feet in the air, happy as can be. I have the crate set up until he's house broken, but I imagine it won't be long until he gets to stay out. Littermates are truly special. They just had an instant connection. Not like they knew they were siblings--I doubt that that's the case--but just this deep and strong bond between them. I'm so glad I decided to post in W&W!

That boy is so sweet! I was sharing lovins' with him the first of the month and he was sooo soft and snuggly. Happy he is finally home with you and Teddi.

"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
