Guest kkaiser104 Posted August 25, 2013 Share Posted August 25, 2013 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 Brothers meeting at the truck (ignore me in this, I was too lazy to crop it) 1229846_10201739188062334_793601481_n by Katelyn Kaiser, on Flickr Getting lovings in the hotel room 166020_10201739196022533_373286582_n by Katelyn Kaiser, on Flickr Brothers sleeping 1001268_10201739194622498_771283434_n by Katelyn Kaiser, on Flickr 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! Untitled by Katelyn Kaiser, on Flickr 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!
