Bittersweet Ending

Today Paul and I decided we are going to close Fasthound Greyhound Adoption after being in the greyhound rescue business for close to7 years.  For the last year or so I have not felt I have been giving my all towards the group.  It has taken a lot of soul searching to come to this decision but I think it is the right thing to do.

I am very grateful to have been a part of helping save the greyhounds we have over the last 7 years.  I am also grateful to have been able to introduce the breed to people who never thought about having a greyhound as a pet before.  To say these dogs are the greatest in the world is an understatement!

The thing I am most proud of with my time with Fasthound is Sweetheart.  She is my biggest accomplishment (even though I really owe everything to Dr. Kolar and staff) and the greatest gift Fasthound gave to me.  She will always be a part of my family for as long as she lives, as well as Monte, Benny and Cleo.

I hope one day soon I will take up volunteering with a greyhound group.  Right now I just need some time to relax and let this sink in.

I will keep updating the blog as it is Sweetheart's blog and she isn't going anywhere.  :)

Jess and Sweets


  1. Well all the very best to you. Look forward to hearing more about Sweetheart. Deccy x

  2. I am sure once you have recharged your batteries you will be volunteering with a greyhound group. Until then you take care.

    Look forward to reading your blog.

  3. Good luck. I know you will still be introducing the joys of living with Greyhounds to people in your daily life as we all do:) We can't help but share our love for them! Glad you are keeping Sweetheart's blog going.

  4. Thank you for all you have done and for introducing us to Sweetheart's story (and her most happy ending). Looking forward to your updates for we all enjoy them. I have owned 5 greyhounds to date, since 1991 and almost didn't continue but that only lasted 2 weeks before we got our 5th-China.


  5. I'm so sad; I was so hoping that we would be able to get our greyhound from you guys. :) Selfish of me. Best wishes and I believe Sweetheart is amazing!
