Greyhound adoption - 3 month update.

Greyhound adoption - 3 month update.

It's been 3 months since we adopted our Greyhound boys.

Wait, Nash and Roman have only been with us for 3 months?  It feels like forever!

It’s about time for an update on the boys since our Gotcha Day.  If you missed the post about bringing them home, read about it here.

Warning: this post is going to be filled with pictures.  A lot of behind the scenes pictures of what they have been up to!

Life as a racing dog.

It is so hard to see these cute, cuddly, mellow boys, and think just a few months ago they were living the life of a racing greyhound.

I have no real experience on what this entails, nor do I think I want to.

But, I have read a few books about it.  It’s interesting, but it also makes me tear up a bit. I can only hope that our boys were treated well at the farm.

I knew I wanted something that had three bowls, one for each of them (for food) and one in the middle for water. I was being optimistic and hoping they would get along enough to share a water bowl.

Shopping at the antique mall is sometimes a weekly adventure for me. I LOVE to browse those isles. This particular day Bryn was with me. I laid my eyes on this old, old bench and knew it was perfect.  $17ish later, it was mine. I’m not sure if Bryn saw my vision yet, but he soon would.

Bringing you home.

Bringing you home.

October 15th, 2016 was Roman and Nash’s ‘Gotcha Day’.  Let me start from the beginning.

Our sweet Maya left us back in February from Osteosarcoma.  Because she was only 9 years old at the time, Bryn and I thought for sure we had several more years left with her.  This was a complete surprise to both of us, and it left us empty-hearted.
