I adopted my first greyhound on January 1, 2002. To say that greyhounds changed my life forever would be a huge understatement.
I immediately became involved in greyhound adoption and that led to proving the chipping theory: you can't have just one.
Jori was our fourth greyhound, Megan is my oldest daughter. The day I brought this shy little brindle girl home as foster, to get her more used to being with people, my daughter and Jori became one.
Megan grew up, went off to college seven years ago, got a job in Portland. Jori stayed behind with me.
Yesterday Megan came home for a visit. I was pretty sure Jori was going to climb out of her skin in excitement.
I admit it, I sent Megan out into the backyard so that I could witness the reunion. I suspected that Jori would know her the minute she saw her and I was right.
The best things in life are never forgotten.
