I've Been Naughty And It Was Nice... -- Tales and Tails

Ghosts Of Christmas Past

by Houndstooth on

One of the things I enjoy the most about Christmas is the memories that come along with it.  The ghosts of Christmas past can be funny, bittersweet or anywhere in between, but I enjoy their return.  Of course, a lot of our memories revolve around dogs, and it’s fun to remember some of the dogs […]

Hang the Moon for Me -- Tales and Tails

Once In A Lifetime

by Houndstooth on

This week we heard a lot of buzz in the United States about the once in a lifetime event of the total solar eclipse.  Like most people here, I was excited to see it, and I was lucky that it coincided with my break at work so I could step outside in my special glasses […]

Devoted To You -- Tales and Tails

The Supervisor

by Houndstooth on

I think the quirks that our dogs have is what we always seem to love about them.  There are some things that they always do that endear them to us.  I still remember how our first Greyhound, Treat, did this dance of joy when I got home from work.  It was like her body couldn’t […]

Partners In Crime

by Houndstooth on

Earlier this week, I took Flattery out with me to take pictures at a spot that I’d seen and was dying to take photos at.  It’s not in the best part of town, and I was hoping I could get my husband to go along with us, but that wasn’t happening.  I brewed and stewed […]

Never Trust A Giant Rabbit

by Houndstooth on

This week as we’ve been getting ready to celebrate Easter with friends and family, I was reminded about an Easter in the past.  Easter was the first photo opportunity event we celebrated with our first Greyhound, Treat, many years back.  She was our Christmas present to ourselves not long after we moved into our house […]

Dia de los Muertos -- Tales and Tails

Día De Muertos

by Houndstooth on

Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday that is starting to be more recognized in other parts of the world, although I find that not many of our friends who live in Europe have heard much of it at all, and a lot of people even here in the United States don’t really know a […]

Treat Reads -- Tales and Tails

The Persistence Of Memory

by Houndstooth on

For a long time, I didn’t completely understand why people had such a difficult time with the loss of a loved one on a holiday.  As a kid, I naively thought that all of the fun, gifts and togetherness of Christmas would make up for the sad memory of a loss.  After I got older, […]

The Kiss -- Tales And Tails

You’re The One That I Want

by Houndstooth on

If you read Bunny’s post on Monday, you know that we attended a Greyhound reunion last weekend.  One of the things I love about going to an event like that is seeing all the different hounds there.  Not only were there Greyhounds of all different sizes and colors, but there were a few Galgos and […]

Sleeping Beauty -- Tales and Tails

Every Love Story Has A Beginning…

by Houndstooth on

I know that different people have different breeds of dogs that they love.  We all fall for different reasons.  While thinking about Adopt A Greyhound Month, I’ve been remembering how we got started in Greyhound adoption.  Every love story has a beginning, and I remember clearly where our love for Greyhounds started. When we got […]

Always On My Mind

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard with a special post today. Today is the last Give Cancer the Paw blog hop, and I didn’t want to let it go by without a few words.  You see, cancer has touched our family in far too many ways.  Mom’s grandma died from cancer and two Greyhounds here have […]
