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 […]

A Few More Words About Greyhounds

by Houndstooth on

Before we leave April behind, I have been thinking about Greyhound Adoption Month and I wanted to share a few more words about Greyhounds.  Every year, Bunny makes her list about why people need a Greyhound, and I think her words are more powerful than mine on the subject.  When I first started this blog, […]

Finding Your Unicorn

by Houndstooth on

If you live in the United States, and probably a lot of other places, you are most likely aware that Starbucks came out with a limited edition drink yesterday called the unicorn frappucino.  There has been a lot of buzz about it, and it has even been reported on the news.  Everywhere I turned this […]

Everybody Needs A Greyhound

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, celebrating the beginning of Adopt A Greyhound Month. April is Adopt A Greyhound Month, and every year, I write a post to let people know why they should adopt one of their own.  As cool and amazing as we Greyhounds are, you would think people would be lining up to […]

Little Ripples

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was supposed to be a rainy day, and my days of Spring Break are rapidly winding down.  One thing I still needed to get done was take Bunny on a few hospice visits.  I’ve put it off a little because the weather has been nice and we’ve been enjoying being out and about, and […]

It Would Never Work Out

by Houndstooth on

The day, I was looking at the Facebook page for the adoption group that we got Bunny and Flattery from.  One thing I love about it is that new adopters often post pictures of their newly adopted hounds.  It’s so much fun to see the dogs learning to live in a home and enjoy the […]

The Dog You Adopt And The One You End Up With

by Houndstooth on

There’s a saying in Greyhound adoption circles, “The dog you adopt is not the same dog you’ll have a year from now.”  I believe there are similar versions of the saying throughout dog adoption circles and for good reason.  While I know it on an intellectual level, my spring break this time has really shown […]

The Perfect Imperfection

by Houndstooth on

Today marks a historic date for us here at the Taleteller household.  One year ago today, we went back to the Quad Cities Greyhound Adoption kennel and brought home a little black waif of a dog we’d met a few days earlier.  We went up to do a little story about Bunny being able to […]

Black Greyhounds Need Homes Too

by Houndstooth on

Hi!  My name is Flattery.  I know Bunny wrote a post last week about why everyone should adopt a Greyhound, but I felt that it was important to make a special case for the most often overlooked of the breed, and that is black Greyhounds.  There are a lot of myths that seem to keep […]

New And Improved Reasons Why You Need A Greyhound

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard with my annual post about why you need a Greyhound. April is Adopt A Greyhound Month and I always like to kick it off with a post about why people need a Greyhound of their own.  You’d think by now that everyone would have one, or wish they had one, […]
