Say Hello To Ginny (Weasley)

So, a little over a week ago I brought home my first Grey (yes I know I will be chastised for waiting so long to post pictures). Her name is Ginny (previously Astar Cool Jewel). She is 5 years old and was what my adoption group considered a "special needs hound." You see, she's not terribly fond of other pets, even other hounds and she just wants to at the little ones. So, she needs to be an only pet and as a result, its taken quite some time to get her placed (over 8 months). Of course, when I met her I absolutely fell in love and I knew she was the one. She's not fond of other dogs and, generally speaking, I'm not fond of other people so it works. I've determined that it's not so much that she doesn't like other dogs (she does fine with my friend's 3 hounds, for short periods of time) she just has a very low tolerance for BS. She's settling in quite nicely and seems to be thoroughly enjoying the pet life. Here's hoping things continue to go well.

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

"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

She's beautiful! Welcome Ginny from Ginny, mom to Beau and Mindy from Florida. Our first two greyhounds were 5 when they came to us - the last one was 2.5. Big difference. I love my boy but the 5 year olds were a perfect age to come home with us. So good on you! I'm so glad you adopted her with her needs - they may change in time as she's used to being in your home and is confident it's her forever home. If not, you don't care so it's a match made in heaven. Lots of fun years together!
