Happy Gotcha Day!

Four years ago, on July 16, 2012, our beautiful boy Truman came to live with us.

I remember the first time we met. We had just lost our boy Larry and Tiger was despondent that his best friend was gone. We all were.

But Tiger really, really didn’t want to be an ‘only dog,’ so off we went to Greyhound Pets, Inc to let him pick out a new friend.

After meeting a number of adoptable dogs, a beautiful red fawn boy came out to meet us. Tiger decided right then and there, that this dog was to be his new best friend.

Here’s how it all played out on Facebook:

Truman was fresh off the racetrack and had never lived in a home. So much to learn! Stairs, glass doors, playing with toys, these are all foreign concepts to a newly-retired racing greyhound. He spent his first few hours in his new home staring at his reflection in a full-length mirror in our bedroom.

Truman caught on quickly to playing with toys. He also mastered the fine art of ‘cockroaching’ in no time.

He even found a spot to practice yoga.


Truman’s personality continues to evolve. He has learned to trust and love us. He is a loving and affectionate boy, who has become more confident and sure about his place in the world, and in our hearts.

We love you Truman and look forward to celebrating many more ‘gotcha days’ with you!
