I'm moving to my Mom's blog

Yes, it's true...I like my new family, and you will now be able to read about my adventures in my Mom's blog:

You should see my new brother....he had BAD manners the other day (I have a picture to prove it! see pictures below). I forgave him, but will gently teach him day by day.

My new Mom says my eyes melt her heart. (geez, I hope that doesn't hurt her). LOL.

She is home

I feel like going to the stationary shop and ordering birth announcements!!!!!!!!!!!

This beautiful girl joined our family over the weekend. Her foster parents, Van and Susan, are two very special people who have beautiful hearts, and who prepared Sil extraordinarily well. Thank you Van and Susan...and of course, foster brothers gorgeous Dewey and Kane.

So, Sil has swished in and plopped she always knew. She has a very sweet personality...and is a good listener. Of course, whenever a new dog enters our home, there is a period of time where everyone is readjusting and making room. We see Ava being a bit naughty...Canoe being a bit insecure...and my husband making these disgustingly sweet murmers to this new dog. "Here you go, sweetheart...I have another lamb lung for you....yeessss, I know you like that beautiful." LOL!!!! He turns into this mushy James Bond. (and that is why Ava gets a little naughty...Dad is HER James Bond!) But after some time, and some normal routines, everyone will fall into place and live happily ever after, right?

We are wondering if we are going to change her name. Probably not since we have soooo many opinions, but some of the ones that have been suggested are: Lola, Nadia, Posey, Sally, Alice, Mishka, Poppy....well, you get the idea...they are all over the board. So if you're reading this, please feel free to vote for your favorite, or offer another suggestion. For now, we will continue to call her "Sil".

Many thanks to all the wonderful people who made this adoption possible...Susan and Van, Patty Winters and Suzanne Lipsom. What a great experience...SEGA is the best.
.....and Quick Silver, you will always be in my lovely girl.

Forever Home!

Sil was adopted today by the Peters family! The Peters have one greyhound, a beautiful fawn boy named Canoe. We were able to see Sil in her new home, and we think she is going to be a wonderful addition to the family. We could not be happier for the Peters and Sil. As I was going through Sil's things I found a note with instructions to post this poem on the day of her adoption.

A trip that started with uncertainty has ended in my forever home. I have found the love of a family and never again will I be alone. So many helped me along the way to see me to this joyous day. And though I may not know all their names my life will never be the same. As I fall asleep in my new bed, thoughts of you all will run in my head. Angels of mercy helped me to live and in return this love I always will give. I have won the most important race; the finish line is the love in your face.


God's speed, Sil. We love you and will miss you.

Van, Susan, Kane, Dewey

Time between blog entries goes faster than a greyhound.

Sil was sleeping and I called her over to me. She roused herself from sleep and came and put her head in my chest. I gave her a hug and kisses on top of her head. She loves to be loved.

Pig's ears, kongs, toys, and other stuff

Sil loves pig's ears, kongs, toys, cats, kids, people, small dogs, food, going outside, writing poetry, working on cures for diseases, scritches, hugs, her bed, her foster brothers, her foster parents, making it to the top of the stairs, the thought of her forever home.

All you have to do is love one thing, her.

Putting on My Shoes

When I put on my shoes in the morning I sometimes sit on the floor in the bedroom. Our boys Kane and Dewey usually see this as an invitation to come over and lean against me in some fashion. This morning as I sat on the floor and put my shoes on Sil came over and buried her head in my chest. I gave her a long hug while Dewey stood behind me and rested his head on my shoulder.

If you don't have a greyhound, please ask yourself why.

Catching Up

Sil has fallen into the routine of our house. Slippery floors are fading in the rearview mirror, and each day she gets better with the stairs. There is just one thing missing, her forever home. Sil deserves someone who will dote upon her and treat her like a princess. She is SUCH a sweet girl and right now someone out there is missing out on a wonderful greyhound. She has done perfectly with kids, small dogs, and cats. I know that she is going to miss our home and her foster brothers, but I am sure a very special home is waiting for her. If you are ready to love a beatiful black greyhound with all your heart then look at Sil. She deserves it. Do you deserve her?
