A trip through memory lane

In 2005 I built our first web site for Greyhound Gardens. In 2009 I updated it. Technology has changed so much since then, I've taken the plunge and I'm updating again. The plan is to integrate the blog into a new and improved website with another new look.

Good grief, what I have I started. I have hundreds of pages to re-create. My mind has once again gone to the dogs.

I'm currently taking a trip down memory lane. I'm revisiting all of the greyhounds that have gone to the rainbow bridge since 2004. It's a happy sad. I don't think of them as often as I used to, but I have never forgotten them, forgotten the pleasure they brought us or forgotten the laughs they gave us.

This is Phoebe. She was 11, nearly 12 years old when she came to the gardens. This girl was a hoot. She dumped a quart of heavy whipping cream on the kitchen floor, de-feathered a down blanket and permanently dis-figured a first generation iPod.

She was going to be a puppy forever, until that damn cancer beat her down at 14.

Stay tuned, we'll be moving to new digs soon. (Sheesh, I hope so anyway.)

Wow - that's brave of you to move. Sounds like a lot of work. Ugh. But the memories part must be nice. :)

It sounds like work, but I am betting it will be all worth it when you get it done!

Phoebe sounds like she might be related to our Lilac! I am a little afraid to think there may be more than one like our girl!

Bunny says that Flocko is free to come visit here and we will gladly take him to school with us!

I wish I knew how to do website work. I have so many ideas and no knowledge of how to implement it!

Hmm, it sounds like you're not doing something as simple as moving to WordPress? Well, hopefully it will be simple when I do it:)

I'm passing on my Versatile Blogger award and there's one for you if you want it:) No obligation to pass it on! Looking forward to seeing your new digs. Good luck with the new site.
