So our family has grown. Yesterday, we brought home a retired racing greyhound. We've named her Jolene. We're very, very excited.
There are lots of misconceptions about greyhounds. That they're high-stress, full of energy and always on the go-go-go. None of those are true. Some greyhounds are more energetic than others. But the vast majority of them are relaxed. Calm. Jolene is like that.
Getting a second dog was a very big decision, but we're willing to work through any issues that arise. We're glad we could give another dog a home, and we're especially glad Toby is a big brother now.
Craig and I celebrated our fourth anniversary on Sunday, and I think adopting Jolene really capped off an amazing year for us. I'm so so glad she's part of the next chapter of our life.
Happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah to all of you. Craig, Toby, Jolene and I love you all :)
