This page is lovingly dedicated to CJ...Cuthail Jet, our first Greyhound, dog of many names. His racing name was
Guard My Angel. His kennel name was Shy Guy. They told us he was the shyest of his litter. But if he was, he got over it. He's one friendly dog! When he came to live with us, he didn't respond to any of his names, so we felt free to name him whatever we wanted. So we chose Cuthail Jet. Cuthail (pronounced "kool"), means "shy" in Irish Gaelic. CJ has a lot of Irish bloodlines, like his 2-legged Mama. And Jet is because he's black and he's fast. When we're feeling too lazy to explain it, we just spell it Cool Jet. And as you can see, he's Mr. Cool alright! He knows how to kick back!

We fell in love with the Ceej monster on sight. By the day after we brought him home (March 31, 1997) we were trying to figure out how many Greyhounds could fit comfortably in our Blazer. So Greyhound #2 (Blarney) arrived on May 2, 1997...and Greyhound #3 (Cassidy - our first failure at fostering) arrived on Septemer 6...and Greyhound #4 (Giz) arrived on October 20...and Greyhound #5 (LB, CJ's littermate) arrived on April 23, 1998...and Greyhound #6 (Tony - another fostering failure) arrived on September 9, 1998...and Greyhound #7 (Monster - we blew fostering AGAIN!) arrived on January 10, 1999... and Willie, Greyhound #8 (Yep, another permanent "foster"), arrived on May 14, 1999! Meanwhile, we bought two racing pups that were born May 8, 1999, but they had careers to see to before they could come home with us. You can see the puppy pictures here. Then we adopted Elvis in September of '99. Our beautiful old Giz died in May of 2000, and we soon after failed fostering yet again when we decided to make AmberLiz permanent. Then came Slinky in August of 2000, and we thought that was it. Well, it was for almost a year. Then we fell in love with another senior gal and Back Hoe became part of the family in July of 2001. Then Giz's son Tipper unexpectedly came to live with us a couple of weeks later. And of course with 12 hounds in the house, one of our racing pups, Gabe, was injured and came home from the track. Just had to happen, y'know?

And there have been numerous real fosters who have passed through our home on their way to their new families. See what CJ started? I think you could call us obsessed. You can visit Blarney's homepage or Cassidy's homepage or Giz's homepage or LB's homepage or Tony's homepage or Monster's homepage. Obviously I have a lot of catching up to do on web pages. Caring for all these hounds (plus the adoption kennel we now have in our basement) doesn't leave a lot of time for building new pages. But I'm working on it.

By the way, we got a full sized van after Giz's arrival, but we soon needed a "fuller" sized van! Click here to see what we got. I don't think we'll grow out of this one anytime soon. I sure hope not!

CJ started what promises to be a lifelong addiction. But who wouldn't fall in love with a guy like him? He's five years old now, retired early from racing because of an injury. Racing's loss, maybe, but definitely our gain! He's black, with a slash of white on his chest, and some white toes. He has the sweetest face. He's a very dignified dog...usually. But there's a ham lurking under the surface. He loves almost everybody, except for rowdy toddlers. He really likes older kids. His favorite things are LB (who happens to be his littermate), chasing his ball, snuggling with his Daddy on the couch, and eating. He'll eat just about anything that doesn't bite him first.
