More Greyt News


Jillie Ann made her way to her forever home on Saturday. She must have really liked the idea of going for a car ride, because she wagged her tail so hard , she gave herself a case of "happy tail". It AMAZES me that such a teeny, tiny, cut at the very tip of her tail could spray so many droplets of blood so far and so high. The spray was very fine, but it still gave a pretty good impersonation a crime scene (luckily I did not attract the attention of the police ;-) Fortunately, the bleeding was easily stopped, and the cut was barely visible.
Unfortunately, I hear that Michelle (who was holding the adoption at her house) got a repeat performance on her walls and rug (Sorry guys ! I did try to get word to you beforehand).
Yes, I now have a first aid kit in my car as well. I purchased an extra one on Sunday at our monthly VAGA meet and greet at PetCo.




There were familiar faces:




As well as a few new friends:


It was pretty hot, but thank goodness there was a breeze

It seems Genevieve, who played photographer for the day, did not venture indoors to get a picture of the Great Pyrenees Rescue which had appropriated the indoors of the PetCo. I would say next time, but we have been promised that they will choose a different Sunday of the month in the future :-)

I'm so happy she got a home! I've only experienced happy tail once here, but once was enough. Wait until you get a broken nail crime scene! Oy!

Kicked outside for Great Pyrenees? That's outrageous!

What great smiles they all have.

It was a greyt greyhound weekend! :) And, we both got our first experience with "happy tail". Our crime scene has been cleaned up and we bandaged up Jillie's tail too. =)

As many greyhounds have had cuts, scrapes, and happy tail at my house, I would hate to see what my carpet and walls look like under a blue light. I always have a spray bottle of peroxide ready to go.

Awww...the rare picture of all 3 of our hounds in one shot! Buford's little teeth poking out made me laugh :)

Happy tail can be horrible. Dana gets it about 1-2 times a year. And for those people that know Dana..windmill tail at high speed. So when it 'rains..it pours' so to speak.

I might have guessed the temps by the pics - it looks like a pant fest. Bring on the AC next time!
