Pink is the New Black -- Tales and Tails

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 […]

All Curled Up -- Tales and Tails

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 -- Tales and Tails

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 […]

Remembering Lilac #BTC4A

by Houndstooth on

It was a year ago yesterday.  It was the day I thought would never come, and the day I’d been hoping we wouldn’t have to face.  A year ago yesterday, we said good bye to our Grande Dame, the fabulous lady Lilac. I could talk on and on about all the things I learned from […]

You Need A Greyhound

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard with a different sort of post today.  You see, lots of blogs are posting about shelters today and why you should adopt a dog.  So, I thought I’d do my own post today because maybe I can help some other hounds the way someone helped me. You might remember back […]

Adopt A Less Than Adoptable Pet

by Houndstooth on

This is a brief post today, just to share Petfinder’s Adopt A Less Than Adoptable Pet campaign.  There are lots of dogs and cats waiting out there who are often passed over because they are blind, deaf, old or have some other issue.  Many of those dogs go on to give people a lot of […]

It’s Good To Be Adopted

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard after taking a little break while I was sick. Sometimes, it’s easy to forget how lucky you are in life.  Lilac wakes us all up at 3:00 every morning, and that can put a serious kink in your beauty sleep.  Blueberry likes to steal my food from time to time. […]

Schmoozing

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about my Saturday. Saturday, we were invited to go and help our adoption group with another meet and greet.  Since we like to socialize with other Greyhounds and because we know how important it is to get the word out about how many hounds are waiting for homes, we […]

Volunteer, Anyone?

by Houndstooth on

There has been a trend in recent years towards volunteering.  I realize that there are a lot of ways that people can volunteer, but the one drawback is that while it’s free to volunteer, the one thing it does cost is time.  For me, volunteering needed to include a way that I could still be […]
