Whistler's Hank

I am glad everyone likes my new post site! It is a lot easier to use as well. This week we kept Jack until he went to his new home. He definitely seemed to 'get bored' easily and get in to things. With the help of Dante, they managed to seek and destroy a box of treats (that Jack's previous mom had sent with him) as well as mangling and destroying my sister's dogs' Christmas present. It was a air tight container from Einstein's bagels filled with the dried bagel dog treats. From this can tell that Dante ate the majority of the bagels.
He was in pain that night!!!

On Friday, Jack went to his new home and Kristen and Debbie came down to do the adoption for Lulu! She is really happy there. I would show you a picture of her with her new family...but we totally forgot to take one. But also on Friday, Whistler's Hank came to my house. He is a Henry Howe dog and going to an elderly couple in Northern VA. He is 5 1/2 and very sweet. If you got to the greyhound data site and put in his race name in you will see he had a very impressive career. He was a grade A and Stake racer. He is a serious lover. And the odd part is that he loves to fetch! He will chase a ball, grab it and run it back to drop it at your feet! It is quite neat. We are hoping to take him to Petsmart today to see how he does on the leash. We have to get new gifts for my sister's dogs for we can take him on the journey! He is getting along very well and seems to love living in a home.
He has even found toys! And this is him returning a toy to Jason yesterday. And as far as I know, Jack is doing well in his new home.

Jason and I also went out to eat last night..with all the greyhound things going on we rarely get to hang out together. So we found a new restaurant and had a very nice dinner. We even got a lesson in Italian wines! Now I want to go to Italy! But then we went to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden's winter fest of lights. It was neat. Not particularly worth 10 dollars a piece..but still nice. Oh and it was florida boy did not have as much fun as I did. I am goign toput more pictures in my album. And remember that my camera sucks at night (hence getting a new camera!) and these are the best pictures..but they are fun! Christmas is next week! We will be leaving on Thursday to visit family for a week. Merry Christmas!!!!

New blog site and old foster returns

Hello! I have moved to a new blog site. My friend gyeong uses this site for his blog and I liked the way this site works more than my old site. If you haven't been to my old blog..go catch up there

And as always you can click on my yahoo photo link on this site and get to all my pictures..which I will update frequently.

But on to the news! The big greyhound news is that Jack has been returned to VAGA. He was placed 8 months ago and was our 2nd foster ever. He just wasn't working out in his new home..his mother did not have the lifestyle to fit his needs. He has gained too much weight and was showing signs of boredom and seperation anxiety.

But we have him now. He is really sweet and loving. He is a 3 1/2 year old blue and white male. Luckily, a VAGA family had shown interest in him 8 months ago. When they were contacted about his return, they had to have him! Jason and I had considered keeping him but it wasn't in the cards for us. He will do well with his two new greyhound sisters. They will give him all the attention he needs and deserves.

The other benefit of this blog is that I can post multiple pictures. Once a week we have a girls night at my house. We usually take turns making dinner but this week we did a Christmas dinner. We all made different things! This is Jenni, Stephanie and Amanda busily getting dinner ready. Amanda adopted Ana who is also in this
picture. So we had a full house! But we had a lot of fun.
Also, Lulu gets officially adopted on Friday. Her family just loves her and they aren't having trouble with the allergies. So they are all coming over on Friday for the official 'ceremony'!
And as of now a large group of dogs are coming up on Dec. 30th. I have no idea if we will get a foster. We will be out of town for the holidays and we are having a party for New Years! Oh..and I am 'hopefully' getting a great new camera for Christmas from my parents. SO be prepared for all sorts of new photos..I will be able to finally get action shots! woohooo!
enjoy the new blog site. I hope to get more used to it!
