The Love Of A Senior

by Houndstooth on

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that May is Adopt A Senior Month with most Greyhound adoption groups.  A lot of groups offer discounted adoption fees and a lot of vendors send out special gifts to senior Greyhounds adopted in May.  Once upon a time, Mr. Taleteller and I adopted a senior Greyhound, and […]

Some Surprising Good News

by Houndstooth on

Over the weekend, I had some surprising good news that I wasn’t expecting.  You might recall that last year we were nominated for a Nose to Nose Award for a photo I took of Bunny.  I went off to the BlogPaws conference and I didn’t even have a speech prepared because I really didn’t think […]

Worth A Second Look

by Houndstooth on

I was watching this video this week, and while it has nothing to do with dogs, it made me think about dogs in shelters.  I understand if you don’t want to watch the video, because it’s a little long, but it does a wonderful job of illustrating my point.  You don’t have to look for […]

In Seventh Heaven

by Houndstooth on

We’re skipping our usual black and white fare today to celebrate an important day at our house.  Seven years ago today, a certain little blue fawn princess was born.  I’m sure they didn’t know they were in the presence of greatness when she arrived in the world, and I didn’t even learn about it until […]

The Hound Not Taken

by Houndstooth on

Our recent trips up to the adoption kennel to meet and adopt Flattery made me think about visits we’ve made in the past.  First, we went up and met Treat and Hawk in the old kennel.  After that, they got a better facility that was better for the dogs and they were owners of the […]

Finding The Perfect Dog

by Houndstooth on

It’s funny where life takes you sometimes. Last week, I was really lamenting how much I missed Blueberry and the energy she brought to our lives.  When we went up to visit the adoption kennel to visit, I really wasn’t thinking it would lead to us finding another Greyhound.  Of course I had looked on […]

Celebrating the Warrior Princess

by Houndstooth on

Four years ago, we had no idea that an event was happening that would change our lives irrevocably.  We wouldn’t find out about it until eighteen months after the fact, but it was an important day for us.  A certain little puppy was born who would come into our lives and turn things on their […]

The Story Of Us

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard again, conducting an interview with my sisters. We were asked to so a post today about our adoption stories.  However, all of our adoption stories have been told, and we didn’t want to make this post read like a novel, so I thought I’d intervew my sisters about our adoptions […]
