Not travel, but dog stories and a few people stories too…..
OK, so why is there a dog story page on a blog about travel?
Dogs have been a part of my life, for most of my life.
When Jim and I got married I had a beagle named Charlie that my son John had rescued, and the beagle was not only a house dog, he also slept with me. That was Jim’s first experience of living with a dog in the house.
When Charlie was getting older we adopted our first retired racing greyhound, we named him Casey. Charlie loved his new buddy (after he got through pouting). That was in 1994.
Our adopted greyhounds were Casey, Molly, Maggie, Charlie (the greyhound), Renie, Lucy and Teddy. We also had many fosters over the years.
Working with greyhounds, and learning so much about this special breed is something I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to do.
We lost our last greyhound, Teddy on October 15, 2012.
My very first website was an old Easy Board website that I put up about 20 years ago, and I used it for dog stories with a few people stories that I collected. The website is long gone but I still had the stories. It occurred to me that I could bring them over here, so here they are.
I will warn the dog lovers, for some of these keep Kleenex close by. If you aren’t a dog lover please just quit reading now.
I’m Still Here adopted 1994 @ age 4 For Casey, the perfect boy and therapy dog to many who waited for the greyhounds to come visit. I remember one gentleman in particular who had shown no awareness of anything, according to staff, until Casey put his head in his lap. Somewhere way back he remembered a dog. Casey gone way too soon at age 8.
