On Not Being an Ostrich Anymore

Ok, I have to admit I've been sticking my head in the sand, trying to ignore the fact that Beckett's limp is not going away.  Tomorrow he is booked for an x-ray.  I am more nervous now that the appointment has been made since I have to acknowledge it.  Don't get me wrong, I have always made sure they get the required visits to the doctor.  There is just something about this that has me on edge.  Sounds strange to be praying for arthritis or a sprain...

Hi all Miss Veil here.
The stars must be aligned... not too hot, not too wet... I was able to get out and have some backyard fun on a beautiful day.

Thinking about it...

Still thinking...wait, who peed here??

Fake to the left...

Look out, here I come!

Beat you to the gate! Ok, I'm done.
On this sombre anniversary, I hope everyone had a chance to relax and have a little fun with their loved-ones!

As it starts to feel more and more like fall (which is really my favorite season), I am reminded that the "gotcha days" for all three of my greyhounds are coming up soon.  I was also thinking that as adopters of retired racers, we don't have any puppy pictures of them.  Veil was our first venture into greyhounds and she was the youngest when we brought her home at just under two years old. Beckett was three and a half and Maddy was almost three.  I guess the pictures from the foster homes of the adoption group, which would be the first time we saw what they looked like, are what I consider to be their "baby pictures".




  Maddy's pictures came from Gadsen Correctional in Florida as she was a "prison-dog" from Second Chance at Life Greyhounds and technically, we were supposed to be her foster home.  But come on, one look at that picture of her eyes looking back at me and I knew I'd never be able to let her go.

Miss Daisy

In honour of my mom's birthday today, here are a couple pictures of her other daughter, Miss Daisy Miranda, her beautiful, 12 year old golden retriever.  Happy Birthday Mom from both your girls!
