I apologize for how long it has been since I last posted here, no excuses, just kept putting it off.
About 10 months ago we were asked to foster an 8 year old male ex racing greyhound who was called JC, short for his track name which was JC’s Poseidon.
JC’s adopter had died suddenly and unexpectedly and so we agreed to foster and brought him home to meet our two boys, 7 year old ex racing greyhound litter mate brothers Vladimir and Vitali.
At first we considered our fostering a temporary thing, (that lasted about 2 weeks) but as we got to know more about this sweet boy, we decided we did not want to cause him any more upheaval in his life if we could help it and so we signed his adoption papers last week and he is now, officially, a member of our pack.
Oh yeah, the Bugsy name…I am not personally fond of calling a dog by whatever it was they were called at the track, those that know me can probably guess why, but we’ll just leave it at that. While trying to think of of a new name for him, I noticed him being overly “interested” in bugs that were flying around when we were outdoors, snapping at them, etc….so you guessed it, JC is now, Bugsy, and to be honest, has been almost from the time he entered our home.
While we encountered a few issues at first, he has settled in nicely and is a great addition to our family, which includes 3 cats.
