Almost a year ago we submitted an application to adopt a greyhound with our local greyhound rescue organization. It was quickly quite clear that we weren't ideal candidates because we have 2 cats and a little one - they generally like kids to be at least 5 years old. And so, I had just about given up hope on a greyhound in the near future. That's why I was so surprised to get a call last week asking if I'd like to meet a young pup (between 12 and 14 months old) who might just work out in our house. "Kevin" came over last Wednesday to check out the place and meet me and Brynne and our cats. The first meet went extremely well, and I was pretty sold on the cutie. Jerry was out of town for work last week, so we arranged for a second play date on Sunday. Kevin came over and spent most of the day with us - we played outside, went for a walk to the park, and had loads of fun. We drove him back to the rescue center last night, and we all decided that Kevin should join the family. Since we're going out of town for the holidays, we're waiting until we get back to bring him home for good. How can you resist this guy?!?
As you can see, he's quite irresistable and very comfortable lounging on our bed!
The only major hurdle is coming up with a name. I just can't do Kevin... doesn't work for me. So, I'm asking my blog friends out there for name ideas - we like creative and fun, but easy enough to call him. If we end up choosing a name suggested by a blog reader, we'll send a little goodie package out with some fun stuff! So - bring on the names!
