Gonna do it!
We attended the Meet and Greet yesterday for GEM Greyhounds and really liked what we saw and heard. We submitted an application for adoption for one of them and now we wait for a couple of days before they will get back with us. We never knew that the process was so involved. The GEM (Greyhounds of Eastern Michigan) Adoption Society will perform an "in home" interview of us and then bring the dog that we have chosen to meet us. The Greyhounds that are being adopted have been taken from tracks after their racing days are over. The one that we really like is pictured here. Her name now is Sunny for her disposition but we may change her name to Sunshine. Sunshine is 6 years old and hopefully we will know by the end of the week if she will be ours. If so, we have been advised that there should be no problems with our leaving with her the first of January for our journey to Texas and Arizona. Other owners have said that wherever we are, the dog will be fine. She will consider wherever we are to be her home. Now we have to make the house "dog proof." Just like small children, we will have to ensure that there are no items within reach of the dog that would harm it or make our life miserable, either. Now we wait!
