My handsome big brindle greyhound Griffin has been returned to the Greyhound Gods. He no longer has pain. Griff was the ultimate greyhound adoption ambassadog. His post racing career was sleeping, snacking, getting ear scritches and promoting greyhound adoption by attending weekly meet/greets, promotional venues, home evals and picking up the road apples thoughtfully dropped for him by the preceeding ponies in the holiday parades.

He is missed.

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Oh Vicky, please accept my heartfelt sympathy. Griff is free of pain now, but I know you must be in a great deal of pain. I'm so sorry and you are both in my prayers.
Regards from Deb, Allie (6/1/07), and Riley (2/20/09)
