Thank You!

 

I didnít really want you, I wasnít really sure and
Iíll admit I had my doubts, when you came through that door
Not small or cute or fluffy with big soft puppy eyes,
But tall and thin and bony with bald pink bulging thighs.

You werenít the kind I had in mind, not in any way,
Perhaps it would be better if I took you back today,
Before we know each other, it really wonít be kind
To keep you here for 1 more day & then to change my mind.

But against my better judgment I decided you could stay,
and quickly I discovered you were kind in every way.
Your gentleness and patience really stole the show.
Why these dogs are wonderful, I must let others know!"

Youíre my gentle giant, who just needed the chance,
To show us all what you could be, to wipe away that history,
dispel our preconceptions, that put us all to shame,
And so we come to know & love what lies beneath that frame.

And now Iíve come to understand,
What I missed at the start,
That Greyhounds need that great deep chest,
To house their great big hearts.

They Sailed the Ocean

Greyhounds came to the New World in 1493 on Columbus' second expedition.

A Quiet Place

Baby or dog gates are an inexpensive and very useful way to keep your newly adopted Greyhound confined to a "dog proofed" safe area or room of your home during the house breaking period or while you are temporarily away from the home.

We can use your donation to help offset our costs of taking care of the dogs.
