When your littermate becomes available for adoption, there's only one thing to do...

This is CBJ Villain aka Villa (probably changing to Willa), who joined us yesterday. Despite her intense stare :lol she is a sweet, curious girl and her brother seems absolutely thrilled to have her here. The hoomans are a bit "What have we done?" but we're trainable. So far, so good with the cats and no sibling squabbles yet.

How exciting! :yay

"It is also to be noted of every species, that the handsomest of each move best ... and beasts of the most elegant form, always excel in speed; of this, the horse and greyhound are beautiful examples."----Wiliam Hogarth, The Analysis of Beauty, 1753.

Squeeeeeeeeeee!  Welcome home, Miss Villa/Willa!  She's so tiny compared to Doolin!  And so far, so good with the cats is great.  

I always say that it's definitely twice the expense having two, but zero more trouble and four times more fun.

Can’t wait to start a Willa related playlist!

Since there's two hounds now, you'll have to start out with

She looks tiny to us too but actually weighs a few more pounds than Sweep did! She's 65.5 lbs right off the track to Sweep's 58 in her racing days. I would never have guessed she weighs this much. 

My dad really wants me to name her Banjo. My husband is pushing for Willadean Winkles. :lol

How wonderful! You are blessed. I adopted a mother daughter pair and it was one of the best things I ever did in my life. They KNEW each other immediately-even after having been separated in their careers for years. The daughter Bobber was always with her Mom Momma Seabird and would give her little gifts all the time-like her personal bully stick. It was a beautiful sermon on love to watch them.:beatheart

Thanks, all, for the Warm Willa Welcome! Doolin is in love, despite her being a bit pushy gluttonous curious about everything. He is such a good, tolerant boy. She is going to keep us on our toes, I think. :lol

The only way you can beat having a brindle is by having two of them. Jackpot! :thumbs-up
