Sunday - New video taken Saturday

No Sweetheart update today but a new video that is adorable.  Thanks to Les for getting it on the blog!  Dr. Kolar's is closed and I figured I wouldn't call him and bother him today.  Sweetheart was doing greyt yesterday and he would have called me if there had been a problem.  Enjoy the video below and meet the greys that Sweetheart will be living with when she comes home next Saturday!

Below are some pictures of my personal dogs and my current fosters.

Lucy - She is one of the most beautiful greyhounds I have ever fostered.  She just had a broken back toe amputated
and we are waiting on the biopsy results to make sure she doesn't have cancer.
Our foster Journey.  She is 11 and a half and an absolute doll.  Michelle, this picture is for you.
I wish more people would consider adopting seniors, they are a true joy to have and
I wouldn't trade my time with them for anything.
Journey sleeping.  She hooks her leg over her ear every night.  It is absolutely
adorable to see in person.
Jackie - I have fostered this sweet girl for a total of over 18 months.  She is a little shy out
in public but so silly and loving at home.

Bavarian, my very first greyhound.  He is now 12 and was what made me
fall in love with greys and what led me to start Fasthound with Paul.

Monte our second failure at fostering.   He is 9 and a half years old and is a such a happy boy.

Cleo, our first failure fostering.  She is 7 years old and has more energy than a puppy.
In this picture she is sleeping with her little tongue peeking out of her mouth.

I will be going to see Sweetheart tomorrow after work.  I will give you guys an update tomorrow evening (unless I break down and call Kolar's tomorrow to see how she is).  Hope everyone had a nice weekend.


  1. Beautiful babies you have! My bridge boy had a toe amputated at the track. Then they kept racing him... but I digress.... I would always tease him that I should get a discount on his nail trimmings at the groomer!

  2. Bavarian broke his toe racing and they amputated it. However, they did not race him any longer and I ended up with him!

  3. Thanks for those pix! Sometimes, the best thing that happens is for you to flunk fostering! I have started a new pet blog. It is called "Grey Hares on my sofa" . Stop by if you have a chance!

  4. P.S. You got me beat on long-term fostering! The longest I have had one (well two) is 9 months. I had Sadie for 9 months. Flunked on that one. Then I had Dave for 9 months as well. But girl, 18 months, I admire you!

  5. 18 months total. I had her for a year the first time. She got adopted and then was returned about a year and a half later due to family situation. I have had her this time around since the first part of January. When we got her the very first time from the farm she was so skittish she wouldn't stay in the same room with us. Now she is a wild little girl who loves to run around and be loved on. She is another one of my special projects who I wouldn't trade for the world. I love the underdogs!

  6. I love the video and the pictures of your babies and fosters. What a nice group Sweetheart will be coming home to.

  7. It looks like Sweetheart is going to be in the best place possible, plenty of company, plenty of love and loads of commitment. You are clearly a very special family (of the two & four legged variety).

    All our (ongoing) best wishes, Spiffo & Cami

  8. I love that little rat tail that doesn't stop wagging!!

  9. Oh Sweetheart will be amongst great company at home. This week will go so slow cause she needs to go home to be with her new loving family.

  10. I have a senior greyhound and I really enjoy it, I agree that more people should take the old folks in. Tigger is still really spry and fun when we play, but very relaxed the rest of the time. Its the best of both worlds.

    I'm glad Sweetheart is doing better. The fact that she ended up here made me so sad. I couldn't imagine treating my dog that way.

  11. Wow - you are wonderful. Good luck to Sweetheart and to all of you!
