DH and I went Petco today and they were having a Meet and Greet for a local greyhound rescue group. We just bought a house a few months ago that has a fenced in back yard and we've been talking about getting a dog for a while. My husband is a dog person and has patiently been waiting for the right circumstances to bring one into the fold. Since I'm now working from home it is really an ideal situation for a pup. I've never had a dog so I must admit I'm a little nervous about it, but I really love greyhounds and have always said that if I were to adopt a dog it would be a grey. They are beautiful dogs and seem to be so sweet and gentle. Anyway, we came home and submitted an application online. Apparently the next step is to set up a home visit and interview with an adoption coordinator. Obviously my chief concern is that we get a cat safe grey, preferably one that's been fostered with cats. I'm a little worried as to how my two kitties will react, but I've been doing a lot of research on proper introductions, so I'm hoping when the time comes it will all go smoothly. Anyway, wish me luck! If anyone else has a greyhound or can offer up any tips on cat/dog intros I'd love to hear from you!
