For those people who haven't been following my antic, I volunteer with a greyhound adoption group and one of my favorite couples had recovered from their recent loss enough to bring another dog home. So I made arrangements for this handsome guy to come to the Pacific NW from Oklahoma. The last leg of his trip I drove from Portland to Seattle and back in a very early morning. On the way he wiggled his goofy way into my heart.
When Dawson's father became a temporary single parent and stressed by a morning of hectic activity I was asked if I could come by to check up on him and his buddy Preston. Why wouldn't I? Dawson I adore and Preston I was about to take home when my friends decided they were ready for another dog so both these dogs are some of my favorite hounds. So I got to cuddle with the two goofy guys for about an hour between other obligations and then had the mandatory sniff-down when I got home and my hounds could smell that I had been snuggling with other dogs. Good thing my boys are the understanding types :)
