Please Welcome Vonnie (Se's Vonnie C)


Recommended Posts

Jaynie (Barts Orchid) and I recently attended the Halfway Home Greyhound Gathering in Abilene KS, and brought back more than great memories and vendor goodies!

Please welcome Jaynie's daughter Vonnie. Here she is on the right, mom is on the left (thank you DeniseR for the photo!):

Thank you to her owner, Bob Rider, for entrusting Vonnie to me, and to Teddy Palmer (HHGA) for taking such good care of her until the gathering. Thank you also to roommate Jan (Greytpups) for helping me with the girls, making life sooooo much easier!

Vonnie is a sweetheart with the thickest, softest coat of any greyhound I have ever encountered.

She joins not only her mom, but also her her brother Jeff (SE's Jeff C) - here they are wishing there wasn't a screen in the way of a squirrel in the yard:

Congratulations!

 

Was there any indication that they recognized each other?

None. However, when Jeff came home a few years ago, he definitely remembered his mama, and was thrilled to see her. She was less thrilled to see him LOL. This was the evening he got home:

Vonnie is really sweet and I'm sure she will be a real hoot judging by the trip. She crawled in between my bed and the wall and slept in a really narrow space but managed to get herself out ok...such a silly girl who loves loves loves people. I'm really smitten with her and am so glad I got to tag along on the trip.

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

Congreytulations on the family reunion! You can see Vonnie's coat is soft just by looking at the pictures. And her ears look exactly the same as Jaynie's.

 

Poor Jaynie - enjoying life as an empty nester, and now the grown kids are moving back in.

Mary, I'm glad you gave Vonnie a home. She is one lucky girl. I'm sorry I didn't make it to the gathering this year to see you. What are your plans for next year?

Mary, I never connected your GT name with you until just now. It was most definitely a pleasure to see you and Jaynie last weekend and meet Vonnie. Looks like all is going well in her new home. Hugs all around for your fur family!

Ditto this - didn't make a connection at all! We had a great time in Abilene with ronee and Jill!!! Teri
