Week 10--Where does time go??

Tippy had a pretty busy week.  She was part of a small group of hounds being shown to a prospective greyhound parent on Tuesday evening.  It was a tough decision, but Tippy came in second. :(  So I brought her back home to wait for the next time.  I don't think any of us were that disappointed, but we would have been happy for Tippy to find her forever home.

Saturday Tippy stole many hearts at the Pet A Palooza Event at the Fairgrounds.   She gave hugs and kisses to many visitors to the Northern Lights Greyhound Adoption booth.  Tippy is very social and loves everyone!!  Everyone seems to love her.  There is just something special about her personality that you can't help but fall in love with.  (right, kids and friends who want me to keep her)  There were a lot of comments about how she looks like a tiger.  After all the action and treats, Tippy was pretty darn tired when we got home.

Tippy's birthday is coming up in just 9 days.  Who will give her the best birthday present ever--a forever home!?!???

Week 8 !!

It is hard to believe Tippy has been with us for 8 weeks already.  And at the same time, it seems she has been part of our family for a lot longer.  Tippy went to a meet and greet at the Quarry Petsmart this week and was a perfect lady.

I mentioned earlier that Tippy is not bothered by the vacuum cleaner.  Here is proof:

Tippy has taken over Miss Sadie's favorite spot to lay so Sadie has had to compromise.  This is under the desktop of my home office.  It is only about 6 ft in length.  I have to be careful how I roll my chair and where I put my feet.  The things we do for our dogs!!

Tippy will be at Pet Palooza at the State Fairgrounds on June 25.  Come see her live and in person.  You won't be disappointed.

Even though this blog is about Tippy, I have to share something about Miss Sadie.  If you have looked at Boo's blog ( and saw that she suffers from ETS (and if you haven't--do it now!!)  Sadie is also a victim. :)

Until next time............

Tippy is the sweetest greyhound.  She is playful, affectionate, and loves to cuddle.  Tippy let me clip her toe nails without a peep.  She just stood there while I lifted each leg.  Tippy is patient during teeth brushing time, but sometimes tries to back away during the brushing of the front teeth.

Tippy loves to go for walks and greet every person we meet.  She is learning that not everyone loves her  like I do.  Tippy's birthday is coming up and really, really wants a forever home.  She is great around people, dogs, cats, etc.
