Meet My Fur Kids
Meet My Fur Kids
There have been multiple requests for a post like this, so I figured it was time! I mentioned in my About Me and Terms pages that I have a dog-friendly home. I sometimes mention my pups in my live videos if they’ve done something cute or random. I am THE Crazy Greyhound Lady.
After moving to Southern Maryland in 2016, our family had a longing for a furry little addition to our family. I originally wanted a Schnauzer, but my husband had heard about a Greyhound rescue in our town. I contemplated it for a little while and we finally decided to get serious about adopting a retired and rescued racing Greyhound around the end of 2016.
On January 8, 2017 we welcomed Shaelee (pictured above) into our home. She was five years old. Her racing name was Shady Shaelee. Shaelee seamlessly fit into our family, she quickly became my heart dog. I have no doubt that this dog was meant for me.
On November 26, 2017 Shaelee suffered a massive stroke and we had to let her go to the Bridge earlier than what we were ready for. Shaelee was the best dog I could have ever asked for. I loved her and I miss her everyday.
In December of 2017, we began to foster Sunshine. Sunshine is two years old. I figured this might be a decent way to mend the hole Shaelee’s absence left in my heart. On Christmas Day, Sunshine bolted out the door! She survived snow, strong winds, sub-zero temperatures, freezing rain, and busy roads for FIFTEEN days! On January 9, 2018 we were able to trap her with a humane live trap. We took her to the vet immediately and she had a clean bill of health. She even GAINED weight out there in the “wilderness.”
After all of that time chasing leads and sightings in the snow, I decided that I was so invested in this dog that I couldn’t ever imagine her being with any other family. We adopted her almost immediately. She’s still a bit shy and timid. She’s not big on house guests, but she knows she is loved and appreciated by many.
Sunshine now proudly wears a Whistle GPS collar at all times. *wink wink*
As mentioned elsewhere on my site, I obviously have dogs in my home; however, they do not have access to my workspace or any of the materials that I work with.
Hope you all enjoyed reading about my hounds. I love them dearly and hopefully, husband complying, I’ll have another very soon. Ha!
