Simon & Chance are young greyhounds that never raced but you couldn’t tell by the way the tear around the yard. These two could not be more different from one another but we love each of them for their own quirks. Simon is a dignified alien and Chance is our little diva. They are pictured here snuggling after a long day of snacks, naps, laps around the backyard, and snacks (they asked we include that twice 😉).

Kuku (PJ Skirt Skirt) and Mama Carole (JJ’s Carole King)

Mama Carole was our very first greyhound, our gateway grey, and our heart dog. She was the absolute best, and there will never be another quite like her!

We were able to adopt one of Carole’s babies, Kuku, and even though they only had a month together in retirement before we lost Carole, it was so heartwarming to have reunited them. We miss her dearly, but Carole’s memory lives on in so many ways, especially in Kuku, who has many similar traits to her amazing mama!

Foxy came to us when she was 1.5, she’s now 8. She is quirky, funny, and cuddly when she wants to be. Her ears are crazy, they go every which way you can imagine, and they’re so expressive.

Sarah

Sarah is a sassy and independent 2 year old. She loves belly rubs, taunting the one cat that doesn’t like her, pre-rinsing the dishes in the dishwasher, and chasing her stuffed animals and deflated soccer balls. Her main dislike is getting her nails cut. She really knows how to hold a grudge, and refused to go out for a walk for 3 weeks after we last took her to get her nails trimmed (during which she screamed like a wounded animal for the entire time). She enjoys being alpha dog in the house and putting us all in our places.

Atticus Fetch (CTW Sir Wyndham)

As a pup on the breeders farm, Atticus suffered a severe hock& leg fracture as a wee landshark. He received excellent vet care but his leg healed with a deformity that prevented him from ever racing. He became a favorite of his breeder but they eventually had to close down their farm. They called AGAC looking for an extra special home where he would be extra spoiled and the director Jenn Boswell thought of us. We were thrilled to adopt him since we have experience with shattered hock hounds and heard what a character he was.

We named him Atticus because he jumped up and kissed me right on the lips the first moment he met me. He was my devoted Velcro Boy and companion as I have been strictly isolated at home during COVID while I await a kidney transplant. He was the cuddliest, sweetest dog I have ever met and he never let his tall, lanky 87 lb size stop him from being my lap dog. He managed to get along fine but was much slower racing laps in the yard than his senior AA grade racer big brother Augie but most hounds would be against Augie. He was our diligent Cheese Tax Collection Agent Extraordinaire! He could hear the rattle of the cheese drawer a mile away no matter how quiet we were.

His favorite foods were steak, salmon, salad, cheese, mandarin oranges and peanut butter filled pretzels. He once found out what the inside of 2 Slumber Ball beds were made of and used them like a kiddie pool diving in and hiding. I never knew a hound so big could completely disappear inside a ripped open bed! I looked all over the house calling him but no Attie. I then called out I was getting a COOKIE and out pops his goofy face! He loved spending time at the lake with his family enjoying the sunset except for the time he was scared near to death by a very brazen raccoon who tried to steal an unattended cheese &cracker tray.

He excelled at learning commands including sitting like non extra special dogs, shake, kiss and Boop which was touching noses to me instead of his sloppy kisses which were greyt in the right moments. He never met a stranger and adored children and babies. He had so much love to share but so little time.

He was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in October at the age of 7. Just 16 days later he crossed the bridge to be with his big sister Ava and brother Augie on Nov 2, 2020. We are absolutely bereft without him and are houndless for the first time in 21 years. Atticus wouldn’t want us to be sad or a hound to wait for a forever home. We will open our hearts and home once again and shower our love retired racer.

I am profoundly thankful for every day I had with Atticus and would love to see his beautiful soul celebrated with all the wonderful greyhounds that bring so much joy, happiness and love into our lives.

Top Vote Getters – Kuku and Tater Tot (8th Place)


Kuku and Tater Tot

Kuku (PJ Skirt Skirt) and Tater Tot

Kuku retired to us at 4.5, and she joined us mid-December 2020. She is the daughter of our late Mama Carole, and she brings us so much joy knowing a piece of Carole is still here with us. Kuku is just like her mom in many ways; she is sweet and loves her humans, is a bed and couch hog, and is serious with just the right amount of silliness! Kuku joined our family at the perfect time, and we are so grateful for her!

Tater Tot was our first legitimate foster fail (although technically Kuku was the first, we intended on adopting her!). Tater was labeled a spook, and we fostered him for a month working to build his confidence. He was adopted by a family, and after a whirlwind of a week, Tater came back to us as a foster and we decided we couldn’t let him go again. Officially adopted August 2021, Tater Tot has come so far since we first picked him up off the hauler. He is a silly boy who is constantly opening up more and surprising us. He is still nervous in new situations, but he has been such a good sport adventuring to new places and events as he builds his confidence more and more. Tater Tot, our brave wild man, is such a good boy and we love him and Kuku so much!

He is adored and has turned into an absolute love bug.
