Adoption Meet-n-Greet at PetsMart

      3 Comments on Adoption Meet-n-Greet at PetsMart

This post is a little bittersweet. I took  Argos, Hammer, and Sophie to hang out at PetsMart today for the regular Greyhound adopt-a-thon and meet-n-greet. The dogs love it, the people love it, and it is great for socialization purposes. Oh, and someone might be interested in adopting, too. 😉 Not today, though. Kind of quiet at PetsMart. I was secretly thinking maybe we should just adopt Hammer. He is such a love. And hey… I can deal with being a “foster failure.”

Then I got home to a message from my rescue group. A family is very interested in adopting Hammer. They live 2.5 hours away. Hmmm. Stop and think. A little panic. Would I ever hear about him again? I called the family. Wow… could be a perfect fit – two dog-loving kids about my two dog-loving kids’ ages, flexible work/home schedules, and they have done their Greyhound research. We are meeting next week to see if Hammer is a good match. My rescue group says that “Greyhounds choose you,” so Hammer will be the center of all of this. For now, here are some photos from today.

Argos has really come out of his shell since we adopted him in December. He loves the attention!

Greyhounds love to use each other as  headrests. How heavy can their tiny heads be?!
