While the intention of this blog is to share information about my writing journey,
I also love to talk about my puppies. I thought I'd share a photo of each of my dogs to get it out of my system ;-)
First up are Romeo (also known as 'buddyman') and Julietta (AKA 'peanut'). R & J are Italian Greyhounds who spent the first 7 years of their life in a puppy mill. Things were Really Bad for them. They were rescued by the angels at Eve's Sanctuary Animal Rescue of Harlem, NY, and my then-fiancee/now husband and I adopted them in August of 2011- just two months before we got married! We had NO IDEA what we were getting into... but our lives haven't been the same since, and I wouldn't change a thing. R & J celebrated their 9th birthday in January by eating doggie ice cream and playing in their large, fenced yard!
And now, let's talk about retired racing greyhounds!
While in the midst of adopting Romeo and Julietta, I was also bitten by the I-need-a-retired-racing-greyhound bug. I read books about them. I dragged my husband to local greyhound meet & greets. I have always wanted to help as many dogs as we are financially (and time-wise) able to, and my very first dog, Lady, taught me to think adoption first. Almost a year after adopting Romeo and Julietta, this time on the same weekend we moved into our first house, my husband and I adopted...
And then, just three months later, after deciding Khaleesi needed a friend...
Thanks for reading about our happy family!
