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 […]

What They Don’t Tell You

by Houndstooth on

As Bunny was working on her post about why you should adopt a Greyhound, I started thinking back to when Mr. Taleteller and I adopted our first Greyhound.  We did the required reading before we thought we knew a lot before we brought our first Greyhound home, but of course, we learned a lot along […]

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 […]
