Greyhounds Mr. Blaze and Miss Vicky

The foster Greyhound turnover has been quicker than usual these days. By the time I was able to get a good photo of our foster, Blaze, he was scheduled for a transport north, where he's been requested by another Greyhound group.

For the last 2 months, we've had Blaze...

...and 3 weeks ago, an adorable little brindle girl, Vicky, (racing name Vicky Rumble), joined us. Vicky looks like a mini version of our dear former foster, Willie, but more feminine. With Blaze preparing to embark on his long journey, we are now down to 2 dogs - our Penny and Miss Vicky.

Blaze is a big, strapping big red fawn boy who is ALL boy...

...and sweet little Vicky - sweet, petite, and all girl! She reminds me of a little fawn with her doe-like eyes and her demure manner. 

Blaze, on the other hand, is a very friendly, joyful, goofy guy, who can become so enthusiastic that he easily forgets himself and gets carried away. Even his ears seem out of control.  Aren't they wild?!

Tomorrow Vicky will go to a Greyhound "Meet and Greet", to meet people who might be interested in adopting her. I kind of hope she's not too interesting and tempting, because as always, I want them to stay as long as possible!

Safe travels, Blaze - a good and loving home awaits!

Have a good weekend, everyone!

  1. They are such lovely animals, it's sad to think about how many of them were only bred for racing and have spent their entire lives confined in cages. They've never known what it is like to just be a happy and beloved pet. I think the greyhound foster and adoption programs are the greatest thing. People like you do make a big difference, bless you. :)
