Giving to Greyhound Pets, Inc.

give to greyhound pets incThere isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t look at Luna and think of Greyhound Pets, Inc., the greyhound rescue organization here in Washington from where I adopted her.

I am forever grateful for the kind, generous people at GPI who give of their time and energy to care for and rehome these greyhounds.  Without this organization, I would not experience the joy that Luna brings me every day.  Perhaps that is why I, too, like to give my time as a turnout volunteer at GPI.  It’s my small way of giving back.  And that’s also why I am using my little bit of virtual real estate to showcase Greyhound Pets, Inc. in Woodinville, Washington as an organization deserving of charitable giving

Wordless Wednesday – An Elk Antler a Day…

Luna loves to chew.  When she first rescued us, she would purloin various items out of my office with the intent to chew them into oblivion.  She was particularly fond of the mellow, aged 2009 Sharpie with a note of cherry. We wanted Luna to be able to use her energy on something substantial because she blows through bully sticks, and with her dietary restrictions, we didn’t want to give her something that could potentially upset her stomach.  Plus, we wanted her to focus chewing on her own things, and not ours (like my Vans).  Ultimately, we found split elk antler.

I had known about elk antlers, and had seen that the Rescue from where we got her gave them to their greyhounds.  Initially, I bought an uncut antler for Luna, and that was just a bust because she couldn’t get to the marrow.  Then, by happenstance, on one of our many trips to the pet store, I allowed Luna to pick out a “chewy”.  She picked the quartered elk antler, and from that day on, “Boney James” has made the top of the list as one of her favorite chewies.
