Yup, you read that right. Gryffin's been gone since April, and I miss him like crazy. I didn't realize how much until I spent the last month designing greyhound artwork for Dewey Beach. I have five Italian greyhounds. They're adorable, snuggly, sweet little things. But I miss my big guy. Today I admired a greyhound in a photo. Turns out she's in foster care in Florida. Florida is inundated with greyhounds right now, and are having trouble finding enough adoptive homes. They offered to let me adopt her. Arg!!! I am SO tempted. We've PMed back and forth a few times and she sounds like a perfect dog for me. Small for a greyhound, she can share clothing with the woman's male whippet. She's only 54 pounds to my Gryffin's 73. And she's a stunning brindle. A snuggler, she likes to lay on her back with her head in the foster mom's lap. She loves puppies and small animals (and I don't mean to eat!) I think I'm in love.
My mom has not objected yet. Will I add her to my pack? I don't know yet. It feels crazy, and yet so right. I would LOVE to have a greyhound to bring to Dewey!!! I would LOVE to have a greyhound in my life again. I think, if my mom says yes, that I'm doomed.
I'll let you know what happens.
The inn is full, the inn is full, the inn is full ... maybe.
