Cookies on their Way

Cookie plates are in route to our GREYT vets.

In early December, Colorado Greyhound Adoption volunteers bake yummy cookies and treats.  Then they gather together to assemble all the cookies and treats on plates in holiday wrapping to be delivered to the veterinarians and their staff who donate their services. 

Along with the yummy goodies, each office receives the new "In the Company of Greyhounds" calendar.  It is a great way to wrap up the year and say thanks.

Thanks to our bakers, platers, and wrappers for your help.  Also, a thank you to Chris and Mike Benedict for opening up their home for this years event.
 

Libby's Troubled Waters Are Calmed

Libby (Look At Me Boyz); April 22, 2001 – November 1, 2014.

Recently, two of our CGA ambassador dogs for the 2014 Colorado Gives Day fundraising campaign crossed the Rainbow Bridge. The CGA Board of Directors and members extends their sympathy to Shari and Scott Wagner upon the loss of Libby. Thank you so much for opening your hearts and your homes. Know her story will forever be a part of CGA members’ hearts.

The following article was written in early October by volunteer and adopter, Shari.


Libby"Libby-the-flood-dog" became part of our family after her family was displaced last year in the historic floods in the Estes Park area. But what's really special about this story is that Libby was 12 ½ years old at the time.

When the email about Libby came out through CGA's Yahoo E-group and facebook page, I cried as I read it to my husband. We never even considered adopting a third dog, but there was just something about her story that made us both want to jump in and help. We were so happy to be selected as her adopters because seven potential adopters had stepped up and said they wanted to help Libby.

Libby settled in pretty quickly, especially considering the trauma she must have experienced between being taken out on an ATV, being displaced from her home, and jumping from place to place while her family tried to figure out what was going on with their house and their future. In just the first couple of hours she made herself comfortable on our couch and showed us that she may be old but she's a diva.

Sashi - In Memorium 2014

Sashi

We're sad to say that our oldest foster dog, Sashi has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.

In 2 weeks, she would've turned 16 years old. We are incredibly thankful to foster Dad, Tim for taking such excellent care of her the last couple of years. He loved her dearly, and our hearts go to him.

Earlier Facebook post of Sashi this year.

Tribute from Tim:
"Sashi enjoyed walks and was always happy when I came home.  She never barked inside but when outside in the back yard, I would run around her and she would jump up and down and bark at me in a very happy tone.  It was kind of a dance.
When she went for walks she would be sniffing - sometimes to were she would be sneezing.  And she had very soft fur.  When you scratched her ears just right, she would chatter to where her voice would resonate through your body."
