Maggie

After losing my pointer I returned to the greyhound breed. Yesterday I brought home Maggie from Forever Greyhounds. She broke her hock in October and retired to my couch. Her foster mom did a great job. She whines when she has to go out and crated herself last night while I was locking up downstairs. She is a champion counter surfer but I was trained by Fiona not to leave food on the counter.

And she loves shoes

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

Can't edit the title but I am starting to think the tattoo/racing name the rescue gave me is not correct. The dog they identified just raced on Friday so I could not have adopted her in central NY on Saturday (also my girl broke her hock in early October) . The tattoos are hard to read but I think my girl may be XT Pistol. The tattoos are one number off and Pistol last finished a race on 9/27 and my girl had surgery for the break on 10/6 so the timing seems to fit. Doesn't matter other than idle curiousity...

Welcome to you and Maggie, whatever her racing name is. Can't beat a brindle with a shoe fetish.

 

crated herself last night while I was locking up downstairs

And our sympathy on the loss of your pointer.

Awww... what a sweetie! Congrats to both of you. She's a collector! My Sobe was one when he first came to us. If anything was missing, it was in his bed. He never chewed things, just "collected" them. It was really very sweet, and funny. At least you'll know where to find your shoes in the morning LOL!
