#154246 Home visit

Posted by alliesmom on 09 December 2014 - 04:52 AM

i have always wanted to help out with IG rescue and I got my opportunity last weekend. IG Rescue New England was looking for someone from RI to do a home visit because most of their rescue reps live in Massachusetts and over an hour's drive from RI. I offered to do it and after some discussion, they accepted my help. I was so excited! The couple that I visited actually had an IG in the past, but it was not from rescue. They seem like an amazing IG loving family and well equipped to handle the potential issues that may arise. I was at their house for over an hour and we had a really great interview. When I wrote up my report for the rescue rep, she said I was very insightful. I told her that I may not know everything, but I know my IGs...Tara, Allie and Riley have taught me well! I hope I can do more visits in the future.

#148956 A remembrance for Gracie from Marsha Hix (igandwhippetlover)

Posted by iggielover on 09 January 2014 - 03:13 PM

Marsha Hix, (igandwhippetlover) owner of I love my Jammies. sent the most beautiful gift to me to help me remember and keep Gracie close to my Heart. Most of Gracies Jammies were from Marsha, they just fit her so good. So Marsha and I were always emailing each other.


I have been so blessed by all of the IG community that has come out to support me at this time. IG people are the "BEST" and I know I would not be getting through this without all of you.
Thank-you Marsha, you have Blessed me beyond words.

#134192 Cody's Secret Santa

Posted by codypup on 18 November 2012 - 02:57 PM

Dear IG Friends:

Wow, were we suprised to get our secret santa box. It was HUGE. Cody had a very generous secret santa (her name is Deb).

It's the most gifts--by far--that Cody has ever received at one time. We know that Riley and Allie helped Deb (our secret santa) select all of Cody's gifts. Cody feels very lucky.

Regrettbly, Cody's not great at pacing himself. By the time we opened all his gifts, he was a pooped puppy. He's been napping for the most of afternoon.

Cody will now be the best dressed IG in Irvine, CA. He's got pajamas, new blankies, toys, figurines, treats, etc. Cody loves his new Providence cousins and his aunt Deb.

One last note. I want give special thanks to Deb (our secret santa) for posting our secret santa pictures. I am clearly technoligically challenged, and as such, was unable to post any pictures. Cody, Phyllis and I are very grateful that our secret santa posted our pictures for all of you to see.

We wish Deb, Allie, Riley, and all our IG friends a happy and healthy holiday season.


Cody, Phyllis and Sandy

#150980 Gracie's Memorial at Camp

Posted by iggielover on 06 April 2014 - 01:31 PM

I love my roommate but I need these 5-6 months away from her too.  She said I could have my Memorial up for a little while but she wanted it down soon.  So I brought it up to camp.  Here I can look at it and remember my sweet girl at a place she loved.



#148498 Thank-you Deb - Alliesmom

Posted by alliesmom on 31 December 2013 - 04:45 PM

Gerri, if anybody ever needed those bookends, it is you! It didn't take me a single heartbeat to make that decision when I heard of Gracie's passing. I knew they needed to get to you and pronto. I'm just glad they made it before the holiday. You have a special place in my heart. Don't ever leave IGW!

#147566 Boo Boo Kitty LOVES her Secret Santa!

Posted by BooBooKitty on 06 December 2013 - 10:45 AM

We got jammies that fit Boo PERFECTLY. We got a charm necklace with a heart and charm that says Boo with paw prints on it. There was a stocking (thank you for customizing the stocking, Jaime), 3 types of cookies that Boo went crazy for, a magnet that says "wanna snuggle" on it, a pencil with an IG on it, a beautiful zipper bag with an embroidered IG on it and the mostest AWESOME customized tile with pictures of Boo on it!

The tile says: A dog wags her tail...with her heart

Here is a blurry picture of Boo and the necklace

#135554 Thank you SS, Emily

Posted by erinpatrice on 03 December 2012 - 11:55 AM

Saturday Jake and I came home to a beautiful box on our porch! I brought it in and opened it. We then decided to leave things wrapped overnight because it was after 11pm.

In the morning our cat, Ezekiel, had taken his toys hostage.

But here are pictures of Asher's goods! Jake and I were so overwhelmed by the generosity of our SS.

Our awesome SS even sent Jake and I some local treats all the way from Puerto Rico!!

We love everything! Asher started making a bed on his new blanket right away. He loved it while I was putting up our Christmas tree.

Thank you so much!!!

Posted by alliesmom on 10 November 2012 - 01:23 PM

#149522 Dora has been adopted!

Posted by mrswattsfresh on 26 January 2014 - 07:44 PM

So happy to announce my sweet foster Dora has found her forever home. A very nice young couple with a sweet dachshund have adopted her. She has continued to lose weight since she arrived here-over 2 pounds!-and actually has an IG shape now. I think this family will keep her active and give her plenty of love. They love this goofy girl, and I'm sure I'll be getting some great updates from them! It's a little quiet here tonight now that she's gone. I am sad for Izzy-this is the first time since Jet has passed away there hasn't been another dog to keep her company. Hopefully I get another foster soon! Here she is modeling her vest I had made to keep her safe on walks-her new owners currently live in an apartment. :)

#146719 overboard

Posted by alliesmom on 07 November 2013 - 05:53 AM

Oh goodness...I have gone overboard with Secret Santa gifts yet again! I shop all year long and squirrel things away in the closet. Then I get a few personalized gifts when I get the name of my recipient. I never realize how much I have bought until I pull it all out of the closet for wrapping. I have wrapped everything in a variety of paw print wrapping papers and I took a picture of the gifts for you to see. Who could these be for?

#123573 Guido, (Joe Lascola) 11/09/1999 - 06/07/2012

Posted by TestingLogin on 15 June 2012 - 06:42 AM

Laura sent me a message on Facebook to let me know that there was a :Tribute Thread" to Guido here at IGW. Laura was able to give me a temp log-in so I could view the messages. While we are not current members here or on any other forum's (except facebook) I am so very touched that you all have posted such kind things.

Guido was such a special pup. He amazed me how he faced every day. Ususlly in pain or sick, but he stuck in there. He had a "zest for life" and I hope he is running pain free and happy at the Rainbow Bridge.

I look forward to the next chapter in my life. I am opening my home to IG Rescue and other rescue groups as a temporary foster. As I have told many people time and time again...while I do love the Italian Greyhound breed; I am not positive if that will be the next animal in my life. Like all the other animals that have come into my life; they are brought to me by some kind of reason. Many times I would have these animals for up to a year or so to nurse them back to health and then find them a better suited permanent home than I can offer. This may be the case again until I find the next "Guido"...

Thank you again for your kindness. Guido and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
