As Zack hits 12 on 6-24, I am reminded of how much he and I have changed over the years. I have forgotten some of his charming quirks as time have gone by. Only remembering them when I look at others “silly Grehound” videos on YouTube.

While I was in a store’s pet area one day, I overheard two people talking about dog beds. The one person said to the other “I know she is a pain in the butt, but she is getting old, and I just want her to be comfortable”. I guess this summarizes my sentiments. Even though I find myself stepping around or over him more, I am glad he is here.

I do realize though that there are times that I neglect him. Making walks shorter, doing less activities that would stimulate him, offering “easy” treats over homemade ones. And yes, I get his “sad looks” (maybe you have seen such a look with your Grey),

which has earned him the nickname “Sad Sack Zack”. But in all, he has been a really greyt dog.

It always puzzles me why I don’t read on the forums more often about other’s greyhounds reaching the ages of (or any Birthdays) 10, 11, 12 or even 13!

Happy Birthday, Zach! I hope you get some really special treats for your special day. I hope you have many more special days.

You'll always see me posting Miri's birthdays for as long as my sweet girl is with me.

That's a big birthday and just awesome! Give him lots of love. Our new(ish) hound Leo is brindle and even in the 8 months he's been in our home, I can see his face whitening. I hope we get to see it totally white like Zack's some day!

I hope you had a very happy 12th birthday with Zack. We haven't seen you two in a while, and I'm glad to hear you are both doing well.

Zack, you're the best! :love
