I've told the story before, but here it is again. Many people as me how I got in to greyhound adoption. I met a greyhound when I was a lot younger and vowed to own one one day. I met Kristen and Gyeong through another friends and we became great friends. We discovered that Kristen had also always wanted a greyhound as well! A few years later, she and Gyeong were able to adopt Stella. When I met Jason, I told him that I wanted a greyhound one day. His response "we have Shiloh and Dante, do we need another dog?"...and I said "but greyhounds are different'"...which he didn't understand or agree with. So we took a trip to see Kristen after they'd adopted Stella. The next day, on the way home, Jason said "we need a greyhound". Shortly thereafter in December 2005, we adopted Dana and the rest, as they say, is history.
So..Stella really did start it all. We owe her everything. She has left a wonderful legacy and we will never...ever...forget her. She was not only the first greyhound in our collective packs, but she was also the first lap dog. She started Jason's quest to find the 'other' greyhound who would think laps were just couch extensions. It took us over 50 fosters, but she was found. Thanks to Stella.
We are very glad we were able to spend time with her last weekend..she gave me lots of kisses which I will remember forever.
We love you and miss you greatly.
Run free, pretty girl.
