Unexpected Happy Endings

by Houndstooth on

Earlier this week, I got an email from Bunny’s adoption group.  Most of Bunny’s family was adopted through the same adoption group.  Her mother was there at the same time Bunny was and was chosen for adoption the same day we chose Bunny.  I even met her there before I met Bunny.   Most of […]

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 […]

You’ve Come A Long Way, Flattery

by Houndstooth on

It’s hard to believe, but this week we are celebrating having Flattery in our lives for two years.  For those who don’t know the story, several things led us to be together.  I took a photo of Bunny that was featured on the blog and we won the Nose to Nose Award for best blog […]

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 […]

A Few Words About Senior Greyhounds

by Houndstooth on

Since April is Adopt A Greyhound Month and May is Adopt A Senior Month, I felt that this was a good time to share a few words about our experiences with senior Greyhounds.  Many Greyhound adoption groups offer discounts on senior Greyhounds in May and there are also some businesses that offer special gifts to […]

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 […]

The Heart Grows Fond

by Houndstooth on

I have to admit, I have a great time sharing stories about Flattery and her adjustment to life as a pet.  She is just a funny dog, there’s no getting around it.  However, there’s more to her than just her silliness, although I love that about her. One of the things I love about Greyhounds […]

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 […]

Flattery Wins The Newest Adventure

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share the beginning of one of the most exciting adventures we’ve started here. Most of you know that we’ve been a bit sad here since Blueberry left us.  She was an important part of our family.  The truth is we all are, but you don’t realize how important someone […]
