And Then She Got Addicted to Watching Rescue Videos of Dogs And Following The Life of Some Sweet Italian Greyhounds

Aloha! Yep, I am still alive!  Want to know what I had been doing instead of blogging? I had been watching rescue videos of Eldad on Facebook  and YouTube, and been hanging out on Facebook with a great group of Italian Greyhound owners, following the exciting stories of various rescue Iggies such as Jojo and Elvis.

Jojo is a blind Italian Greyhound who was left in a shelter, and if no one adopted him he may be in a danger of being put to sleep.  The person who wanted to save him lives in California, and Jojo was in Georgia.  It’s a very exciting story I tell you! If you want to share the joy of knowing Jojo like I do, hop over to his Facebook Page: Jojo, The Italian Greyhound.

Now Elvis … Elvis was rescued from the shelter. At the time  he was rescued, he was so hurt and broken (he was previously hit by a car). He needed surgery and a long process of recovery. Check his the photos at Italian Greyhound Rescue in Houston to see his transformation.  The latest photo is soo cute – he is Elvis, the King!

We will be back to our regular postings about Maui shortly.  I just want to make sure I let you know one of the many reasons I was not updating my blog :)

Last but not the least, if you are on Oahu, Hawaii, and would like to adopt an Italian Greyhound, there is one waiting for you!  His name is Otto:

    Awww such great stories. Loved reading them. Thanks for telling us about them :) I can’t read too many because then I start crying uncontrollably for all the other homeless babies out there though :(

    Have you checked out 4th Friday in Paia town yet? I visit a biz there once a month and the proprietor says the event is Dynamite! Just a suggestion.

    Your blogging friend,

    Otto is beautiful! I’ve spent many hours watching videos of black german shepherds on you tube so I completely understand :-)

    It is a shame that these poor dogs are treated like they are. Thanks to people like you, a lot of them have found a better life.

    Awwww! Otto and the dogs are so cute. I love all animals, but cats are my favorites and I adopted two seven years ago when they were little kittens.
