Introduce Yourself to the Forum / Not New, but I never did this!

Right then... so I've posted on the board several times but I never took the time to do this (partially due to lack of time), which, it seems is a general trend. (We just wanna go have fun!)  Maybe I'll start a fad?

I'm a senior in high school, so time is money... or actually... grades... but none the less, I try to visit the boards as often as I can... and now on to more important things that you might actually care about!  The dogs.  ;)

My family (okay... My mom and I... my dad and brother could care less) have two greyhounds.  Both are retired racers, except for the fact that one of them only raced. (Haha, slacker!)  Their names are Madison and Moonshine, Madison is 4 years old and we've had her since she was a puppy, and Moonshine is 2 and finally getting to act like a puppy. 

Moonshine joined the family only a couple of days ago when I told my mom that we couldn't get rid of him (we were fostering) and that I would pay for him myself as a sort of "senior gift" from ME to ME.  (Moonshine is my avatar, and Madison... is spoiled, and hasn't had her turn as my avatar yet.)

But yeah, thought I'd take a couple minutes out of the day to do this real fast.  Enjoy?

No no, not the illegal beverage, (although he is intoxicatingly sweet!), the GREYHOUND!
He's our foster at the moment (people keep calling everyday!) but probably not for long. He's a greyt boy (yes, I had to be cheesy and do the "greyt"), light brindle, AMAZING lines (his body is so beautiful), and big goofy feet.

The best thing about him?: he's pigeon-toed!  it's adorable... and he's so clumsy. (which isn't so adorable sometimes.)

Got him... two Wednesdays ago, and he has really emerged from his little shell.  He was so frightened of everything and everyone and is now wagging his tail and nipping at your fingers to play.  He seems quite dependent on Madison, as in, doesn't want to be apart from her EVER... looks to her when they're outside to see where he can go potty and everything.  He's still a little jumpy at times, sudden loud noises and movements frighten him and he gets all sheepish (no little kids for him... not that he would be aggressive, just scared all the time.).

AND, he barked today... for the very first time (here at least)... it was adorable. I can see that Madison IS a bad influence.

(And yes, the furniture and crate rules are so hard, he wants to be on the bed so badly!)

I have a frajillion and a half pictures, but haven't sent them to my email yet. (Drawback of camera phones)... so this will have to do, the direct link to his CGA picture

And no... those feet belong to no one in my family... this is the picture they took before shipping him off to... no longer be a workin' man (if you catch my drift) and live with us!

YAY Moonshine...

can we keep him?  :'(
(I've already failed fostering 101... but my mom hasn't... if only we could get my dad to break... but Moonshine is kinda afraid of men...)

Greyhound Discussions & Pictures / The 15th was Magpie's 4th!

Madison celebrated her 4th birthday on the 15th.
Her celebration consisted of a plethora of treats and a day any dog would love, a jaunt in her own little kiddie pool (purple of course!), and a nice relaxing day (not that she doesn't do that every day.)

Not as good as her first b-day party (she had a cake), but being with us and playing all day was probably a close second!

Late, I know, what a bad (or greyt?) sissy I am, but she enjoyed the day and I thought I'd share.  ;)
