Arrival Story:
When I went to Florida to adopt my Aleya from her owners/breeders, there was a litter of 7 pups and they were 13 days old and I got to choose the pup I wanted and I chose her. She was all black when she was born, but later turned into the dark brindle she is now. Her owners/breeders told me I could also choose her racing name and that when she retired from racing, she would automatically be mine to adopt. I chose the name of Garbo. I do not name a dog with the same name as a previous dog, but my other Garbo was so accepting of my other greyhounds and I wanted to honor her by naming this puppy after her. When I held Garbo (the greyhound) in my arms that day, she had one eye opened and was looking right into my eyes and I knew she was the right one for me!

Bio:
I got to see my Garbo (the greyhound) again when she was 11 months old and could not believe how much she had changed and grown. Oh, and she had developed a "cow lick" on her head toward her neck, about 3 inches long. I think it is so cute, and I love to give her kisses on her "cow lick". I had heard that if a dog has a "cow lick" it was because their "Mom" licked them the wrong way. I honestly think she remembered me as she would come over to the fence and sit and wait for me to come by to give her some hugs and kisses. I was fortunate to have been able to spend 2-1/2 weeks with her. Garbo did not make the racing circuit ... not that she wasn't fast, but because she was one of those "bumpers" and would "bump" the other greyhounds when she was racing because she was very competitive and wanted to win! Of course, in the greyhound racing industy, a dog who is a "bumper" would be disqualified. I like to think that she just didn't want to race because she knew she had a home waiting for her. She was available for me to adopt her in March 2006 at the age of 23 months old. I was really very happy to finally have her and she definitely remembered me and my other hounds too. It was a wonderful permanent reunion!
