I will never forget the day I adopted my first greyhound. It was January 1, 2002. His name was Fonzi. He was a this beautiful black greyhound, a little shy, but true to greyhound nature he was so sweet. They called him Greg, but somehow, Fonzi seemed to be a much better fit.
We taught him everything. How to walk on tile floors, how to go up and down stairs and the comforts of sleeping on a bed.
That boy forever changed my life and even though he is no longer with us, I will always be grateful to him. Since the day I adopted him, I have in one way or another been involved with greyhounds.
Tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 8, I am doing a photo fundraiser for the adoption group I currently volunteer with. Oregon Greyhound Adoption is hosting their 3rd annual photo fundraiser at Sellwood Dog Supply in Portland, Oregon from 11 am to 3 pm. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the group.
Please come join us!
