Three weeks ago, my beloved first greyhound, Tempo, died after a battle with osteosarcoma. He was only six. Vicki has now joined my pack of three (me and my two dogs). Full grown at a little over two years old, she is by far the smallest greyhound I have ever seen. She is absolutely tiny, and looks like a whippet, or a borderline Italian greyhound, but she is a firecracker, with boundless energy. She runs the house (and is a little too strong-willed, frankly), even though Rocko weighs in at nearly 80 lbs, and towers over her.


She loves to play fetch and chase squirrels, and is a general delight.

Wonderful news!!

You have a new little firecracker to keep you busy - and if I know my little black females, she will.

So good to see that you've opened your heart and home to another sweetheart.

Let the fun begin!



She's a dolly!

Very happy for you! She is a cutie and it looks like Rocko has deemed her an acceptable pillow. Welcome home, Vicki.

"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

:) It makes me so happy to read this. She is a wee beauty and looks to have settled in so well already. I hope that building your new relationship with Vicki brings you lots of happiness. She is one very lucky bijou hound. Good on you for being willing to get back on the horse after what you've been through and give her a loving home - I'm sure she'll reward you in spades.


Seeing those photos have really brought a smile to my face today. There's mischief in those eyes of hers! Look forward to hearing about her and Rocko's new adventures.

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
