Coming and Going

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve had quite the coming and going of boarders, a foster, and even Murphy. Watching a handful of greyhounds is really not that much trouble. Feeding time can get a little chaotic. Throw a little Murphy terrier-mix into the bunch, and all bets are off.
It was a quiet few days after Bella left, then Sabrina came to stay for a few days. She’s a good sleeper. On a dog bed.
On the couch.
Over the weekend, we met up with Trina for the James River Wine Festival. Everyone adored the hounds. Another great hound and wine event.
Clay came to stay with us for a week. But ended up staying two. We just love the old man. Look at that face, how could you not.
He still trots around the yard. Pretty good for 12 year old.

We fostered Sunny for a bit a while back. She came back to stay for a few days. I tried to get a nice yard shot, but she always had her head down grazing on grass.
Maggie is a sweet shy little girl. She tended to go upstairs to get away from the ruckus if there was too much activity downstairs.
Whyda also came to stay for a few days during this time. She is a couch girl, and exchanged a few words with Stella at first. But then she got used to sharing with 1 or 2 or 3 other greyhounds.
Topsail came while the girls were here. Actually, he’s still here. He will get picked up this afternoon. He exemplifies what it is to be a big goofy boy.
Jack is our foster. He has been here the entire time except for a few days in the middle. He was taking a test-drive with his new family. He is back here for a few days while his new family is on vacation. Handsome, ain’t he?
Accidentally hit the squawker? The only way to settle them down is to give them the treats they are expecting. Think these guys are squawker-trained?
We might need to get a bigger muzzle hanger.
So nice when everyone lays down. Can you count all ten? Parker is hiding under the table.


  1. OMG...look at all the dogs. The shot from above is priceless!! I had to do a double take when I seen the picture of Maggie, she looks just like Ally in it. I have a picture of Ally just like it, I'll send it to you so you can see what I mean. WOW, she is her mommy's girl. I wish I could have adopted her too.

    Beautiful, beautiful pictures Gyeong!
