Long ago, in a kitchen not so far away, there was a family that suddenly fell into running a Retired Racing Greyhound rescue organization….  WAIT – now hold on for just a minute! This is not a fairytale, it happened right here at my house!  Look at the photo above and you will see me doing pill duty or treat duty. It all seems so long ago now that I cannot really recall what all of the clamor was about in my kitchen.  However, it happened quite often.

None the less, the hounds are all a permanent fixture in my memories and my heart.  All had/have different personalities and were wonderful to be able to share my life with.  To this day I miss all of them and don’t regret any of them being part of our family.  Yes there were numerous hounds here and these photos don’t even count the vast amount of retired racing greyhounds we have fostered and worked to adopt out over the years.

These days there is still clamor but on a lesser scale. Though we do not have near as many hounds as we used to we love them as completely as we always have. I’m sharing with you today brief glimpses into some of the loves of my life.  All have taken a piece of my heart and given even *more* back to me in return.

I have tried to list them in the order of ‘adoption’ into our family. Some photos old and before digital photos were ‘big time’, so the quality of them will be of lesser quality. Eventually I would like to do a post on each of the hounds individually so you can get to know them a little better. However, this is pretty long as it is and I *do* hope you will stick with me through the end. There you will see some familiar faces if you have been a regular at the ‘Spacial Peepol’ blog site. So lets start at the beginning, shall we?
