Nov. 11, marks my gotcha day with Zack. I always reflect on the fact that we would have never gotten together except for his one personality flaw. That would "cats", and that did not play out well in his 1st forever home. Oh, I would have still adopted a greyhound, but it would have been a different one. And since that dog would have been my 1st greyhound, I would have considered them to be the Gold Standard. But Zack has surely demonstrated what the Gold Greyhound Standard is for me.

He is getting "long in the tooth" now, and is slowing down. For me Carolyn Alexander said it best, "Dog ownership is like a rainbow. Puppies are the joy at one end. Older dogs are the treasure at the other end." Many a times, I had wished I had met him when he was a pup. I can imagine him playing with his litter mates and licking his mother's muzzle.

Congratulations, you two!

I love the quote -- the older dogs are indeed a treasure.
