I had always wanted a greyhound but thought I would have to travel to Florida to get one. Then I met Hettie at Petco during a Meet & Greet. Needless to say I fell in love with the greyhounds she had there that day, went home, completed my application and waited to be matched up with the right hound. I had my heart set (or at least I thought I did) on a big, handsome, fawn colored male... but then I got a call asking if I would be willing to meet an older, very special greyhound.
He wasn't anything like the big, strong, male I thought I wanted but it was love at first sight. This grey faced, older, black male and I immediately bonded. I was hooked and I believe he knew it. I think Hettie could see the instant connection I felt for this hound and knew we were the perfect match.
He settled in to my home with no problems what so ever and instantly made my home his home too. A year later, I agreed to adopt a friend for my sweet boy. They have totally different personalities but share the same sweet, gentle demeanor that wll greyhounds seem to possess.
I know this was to be about "me".... well, I am all about my 'boyz' and they are all about 'me'.
