Our current greyhound family...
top down - Ira, Ruthie and Claire.
Our newest staff member, and still learning what is required of her as a store dog, but
is ready to greet you at the door and follow you around the store and will, no doubt, b leaning on you .
She is a 6 years old ex-racer that did well, has had 2 litters of puppies and is most definitely enjoying being retired.
A very friendly and curious 4 year old female joined the staff / family the summer 2016.
She is a very sweet greyhound and loves to nibble.
Born in July 2009, raced in Alabama, adopted on 9/5/2011.
A big 'thank you' to Greyhound Alliance and Dr. Jenifer Barker;
Ira is special in every way; sweet, gentle, smart, handsome -from his unique markings to his great BIG smile!

In Memory - - - -
An ex-racing dog that lost her owner and needed a new home.
Phoebe, sweet and soft, but she was always a puppy at heart and ready to be petted.
She passed away rather suddenly, at age 12-1/2, only a few months after her buddy Joey, in the summer of 2016.

An almost all black and a very, (very) shy dog.
His owner passed away in 2012 and Becky adopted both Joey & Phoebe shortly after. He was special needs shy and very sweet;
if you stopped by the store he most likely was watching you from afar.
With heavy hearts he was put down due to bone cancer in March 2016.

Our recently passed member of the Voyagers Greyhound Group: SAMMY
adopted from QCGA (Quad Cities Greyhound Adoption, Davenport/Moline) in February 2006.
Sammy holds the honors of being the Senior oldest greyhound Becky has had passed away in July 2015.
More photos of the current greyhound 'staff' members below,
followed by the entire greyhound family ....
ABOVE, Sammy shown 'acting cool' , napping,
& being cozy with his favorite Rottie at monthly visit to local Assisted Living Center.
Never, ever really considered a greyhound puppy, but when you've got one in your arms and are then told...
'we're looking for homes for these little females' ..... well, you can guess what happens.
Amber arrived at age 7 weeks in August, 2006.
She's from a family of cross-country/long distance greyhound racers
but was part of our family passing away in April 2016.
