UPS may never come to my door again


Eventful day and one I wish never to repeat. Winchester decided to put his paw through the stained glass window just to show the UPS man that he didn’t care for deliveries so close to the front door. I got lots of blood, a Greyhound with a stitched paw and a package delivered on time […]

Remembering a special hound


My friends Carmon and Mike of Black-Horse-Design have lost one of their Greyhounds, Mikie. If you’ve met Carmon and Mike at a show or seen some of their fabulous jewelry, you know how devoted they are to the creatures under their care. How lucky Mikie was to have such wonderful caretakers.

Brownie, String, Beandog, the Bean, Buddy, Sterling. My first Greyhound. My heart dog. My Velcro dog. My boy. Changed my […]

Apollo Greyhound #9


Apollo’s ninth birthday today. (Apollo is one the Greyhounds that live here with us) Hard to believe he is nine already. Up until a few weeks ago he was the “young one” of the pack. Now he’s keeping up with the new “young one,” Winchester. No birthday cakes or party hats here. Apollo celebrated the […]
