Introducing our new addition. Finally a girl in the RWB household! Miss Tina, the Greyhound.
She's a lovely little thing. So sweet, gentle and still a little shy. She's probably wondering why she left the track in Oklahoma to end up in this noisy house with two rambunctious little boys!
I've been "secretly" wanting a dog for my W. He is just so amazing with animals and has been begging for a black and white dog named Charlie for at least a year now. But, sigh, my sweet husband was not interested, with good reason, in having a big dog in the city.
Now, my favorite husband Mr. B, has loved and admired Greyhounds for years, ever since meeting one when he lived in Nova Scotia. Then one day recently, he started looking on line at Chinook Winds again and talking as if we would get one!!!! So exciting!!! ~ W keeps saying, "I didn't know I could get a dog!"
Here, we are, day one with Tina. This is her given name and we have a list of possible new names, but I don't know if we'll change it. The boys seem to be happy with Tina. My niece who is also Tina, may not be!:)
So, this little girlie is just tiny at 54lbs, is so sweet and kind, gentle, loves her walks, and is adjusting well. It's amazing how a strictly crated, racing dog can adjust so well to pet life. They are extremely low energy, docile and adaptable. Just what we need!
