   Leave a bone for Jet - Rest in Peace, My Love

Jetti-mo, Jetti-mo-detti

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

June 24th 1999

Getting loved on. He also fancies himself as a guard dog, & loves to bark (he isn't aware greyhounds don't bark.)

When Maurice pesters him to play, while Jet's lying down (which is most of the time)

Favorite Toy:
He doesn't really go for toys. But he loves to play with Polly.

Favorite Food:
He loves to lap up the milk & sugar in the bottom of my Cheerios!

Favorite Walk:
He loves our new back yard, and also loves the dog park.

Best Tricks:
If I lie on the floor to cuddle with him, he puts his foreleg around me & hugs me!

Arrival Story:
When I knew that I wanted to add a retired racer to our family, I contacted Arizona Adopt-a-Greyhound (AAGI) online, and then went to their orientation program and met the AAGI folks. They initially set us up with a female named Missy, but she didn't work out because she didn't like other dogs. It was heartbreaking to have to give her up after only a few days, but we had to do so for everyone's safety & happiness. I decided to try one more time, and brought Jet (racing name Bailey Pepper) home on a Friday evening. He was fresh off the track, and had never been in a house before or met dogs other than greyhounds. We learned a lot together, as he settled in. Once he decided that being a pet was pretty neat, he REALLY went for the idea! I kept telling him that he didn't have to make up for 4 years of not being someone's baby, in just a few months! He really IS a big baby!

Jet has been with us for 4 years now, and he has won our hearts completely. He is sweet and silly and sensitive and funny. He grins and shows his fangs when he's really happy. He is a "natural" at PR appearances for AAGI, and loves meeting people. In fact, if he's at a PR event, he instinctively knows (from his very first time) that he's there to meet people, and he doesn't like it if anyone gets past him without being greeted! UPDATE 11/03/07: Jet went over the Rainbow Bridge, this morning, after suffering terribly from a herniated disc in his neck. My heart is broken. He was my heart.

Forums Motto:
Jet black and fast as a jet plane!
