Willow The Tap Dancing Greyhound


Just back from our visit to Toronto.  The Winter Fair and Horse Show were great as always, and we got to spend some quality time with the grandkids. 

Willow, their Greyhound was delighted to see us and did a tap dance on the hardwood floor when we arrived.  Along with long legs, Greyhounds also have long toes (and toenails) so when she gets excited and capers around it does sound like she is tap dancing.

I do admire the people and organizations who work so hard to find homes for Greyhounds when their racing days are over.  Nothing in their former life has prepared these lovely dogs to live in a house and be part of a family.  It takes patience and understanding to make a pet of these dogs, and our daughter and her family certainly worked hard to help Willow settle in. Now Willow rewards them every day with her goofy antics and loving nature.

We were a little anxious at leaving the barn kittens for the weekend, but they stayed close to the barn, just as we hoped they would and our good friends were able to put them safely away for the night.  They seem to have grown even in the short time we were gone.

  1. I will make sure to blog again once the bamboo hardwood floor is down and the room is put back together.

  2. Your daughter’s dog looks like a big version of my dog, Bull, a rat terrier! By the way, my daughter’s name is Willow!

    • How cool! Our daughter left it up to the granddaughters to name her and that is what they came up with.
      Thanks for commenting. It is always a thrill to know someone is reading my nonsense!
