Everything Greyhound > Everything Greyhound Fosters > DC Wingnut is here

DC Wingnut is a beautiful black male greyhound I watched at Southland. He was owned by Dennis & Wanda Curry, who I have met & become good friends with. They actually asked me to name one of their pups that they had named Hilda. Her name is DC Heehoo Gough. More on her later.
So I picked up Wing this afternoon & here are some pictures of him. He'll be fostered here for 2 weeks, then moving to St Louis to the group up there. I think the foster up there is intending on adopting. He's a sweet boy, alittle stand offish at first, then realizes you're his friend & "likes" ya.
Here some racing photos and some photos I took before the rain.

Donna, I do too. Unfortunately I've lost 3 black greyhounds to cancer & I have vowed to only adopt the black ones in memory of those 3. Smiley & I decided we would break that curse...the 3 I lost all had names with 4 letters, Bool, Dear & Gogh. We broke it with Smiley's name. Thurles & Ethan are my they call it. Ethan is still racing, Thurles finally retired (he was passed 5 yrs old) in November.
Anyhoo....I stood out in the freezing morning air this morning, trying to get some pictures of Thurles & Wingnut. I only have a cell phone to take pictures with so here's one I thought was descent. I made it black/white also.

I got an email from his new momma (Kelly) today. We may have to do a home visit/intervention thingy...this is pathetic. The dang bed isn't even big enough for him to sleep properly, he has to use one of his stuffy toys for his head!

His breeder/owner Dennis & Wanda are going thru St Louis next month while coming to Memphis/Southland to see some of their racing dogs & to visit, so they're going to stop by & see Wingnut.

Maybe by then Kelly will have a descent bed for the poor baby.

Over the weekend, Dennis & Wanda Curry were in town. They are the "owners" of DC Wingnut, who is now adopted by Kelly & Kevin McKinley in St Louis...they came to the south to see some of their DC doggies running at Southland, and on the way here, they stopped in to see Wingnut. They were totally pleased at the way he was in Kelly's home. I had let Wanda know how he was doing when he first retired & fostered here at Snowy8 kennels, and then moved on to Kelly's. Kelly got him started on fish oil and Wanda said his coat was so soft & shiney.
This is what owners/breeders/trainers want to know & see after their dogs move on to retirement & their forever homes.
We hung out Friday night with the Currys and watched some racing at Southland, it was alot of fun.
