We have been approved to adopt an ex-racing greyhound! Some of you may know that earlier this year I lost two of my dogs to old age, and I miss then SO much (especially now when times are tough). My remaining Westie, who is 12, has been lonely and the house has seemed empty, so we applied to adopt a greyhoudn through a local orgnanization. We used to take care of my brother's ex-racer back when we lived in Massachusetts, so I thought it would be a good fit.

We had two extensive phone interviews, and two home studies. I was told I had to install larger doggie door, which my neighbor helped me with today. We got our approval, and we will probably get one of two new arrivals who are testing child-friendly and cat-friendly so far.

You can see the candidates at
- just click on "Adoptable Greys" ont he left and look at Aiden and Jada!
