Catching up - birthdays and gotcha days

Recommended Posts

Emmy turned 8 on June 27th and enjoyed her 3rd Gotcha Day on July 31st. :beatheart

We celebrated Katie's 6th Gotcha Day and her 12.75 years birthday on Aug 13th. We preadopted her May, 2009, but had to wait 52 months before she was ready to come home. This pic is precious because she was so aloof when she arrived, but now she loves to lay near me. :beatheart

It was Simon's 3rd Gotcha Day on August 25th and his 6th Birthday on Sept 4th. He's still as sweet and quirky as ever :beatheart

And lastly...we are retiring and moving from a region with a pop of 569,000 to a small town with a pop of <30,000. We are finally downsizing the home and upsizing the yard, for the pups of course. We don't move until December 31st, but I'm not sure if we'll make it to Dewey this year.  We gone the last 13 years in a row, but haven't attended any greyhound events this year. I know it will be Katie's last Dewey. Plus we'll be farther from GiG and Dewey next year. We're hoping Katie will be around to enjoy her new bungalow and backyard and attend some more greyhound events.

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 heal and 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.

Congratulations to all and on your new house.  

Hope we see you at Dewey. Our attendance has been hit or miss over the years due to life in general, but I think we've seen you there almost every time we've gone.

I know Jan. She’s incredibly healthy, so I hope I don’t jinx it. No hind end weakness or meds yet. Her sire lived until he was 14.

Our friends live in Amherstburg (the small town we’re moving to on the Detroit River) and they have a greyhound, we have friends moving there a month before us and they have 3 greyhounds, and then 2 other friends with 2 greyhounds are moving there in the spring. 

We’ll be a delightful looking group walking along the waterfront.

Congratulations on the new yard, Jan. Oh, and the house too. :lol

Maybe I should look at Amherstburg. I could increase the Greyhound population by almost 50%. :lol:

Happy Birthdays and Gotcha Days to all the pups. I can remember watching Katie race, and it doesn't seem like that long ago. 

Congrats on your house, and hopefully your move will go smoothly.
