My 20th Anniversary of Greyhound Adoption, Tucson

Twenty years ago today, I adopted my first greyhound. Little did I know how greyhound adoption would alter my life and define it as well. At the time I was struggling to be self-employed in Southern California and decided I wanted a dog because with […]

We recently moved to Tucson from Texas.  Karyn was amazed that both me and Kingston have gorgeous teeth. We could do a doggy toothpaste commercial.

Kingston greyhound – now about those ears?

We like hanging with Daisy and Girlfriend greyhounds and I think Kingston has a crush on Girlfriend because every time I look for him, he is near her.

We’ll be back over Christmas too.  Maybe then Kingston will feel like writing?

November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month

November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month

At A Tucson Tail, we adore the seniors. Unfortunately, senior pets don’t fly off the shelves like kittens and puppies. Most dogs are considered seniors at six or seven depending on their size but for small dogs, a 10-year-old, is middle-age. Senior pets also make […]

Happy Ernie, that would be me. I am 3 years young and am one happy greyhound. My people left me here for a few days and I am happy to be with more greyhounds.

I am a big black boy but I am a gentle boy and if you meet me I will let you know how excited I am to meet you.

I like Girlfriend and Daisy greyhounds and Karyn, the people. I peed on Daisy’s head everyday during our walks. Well, you know, she is nosy and sticks her head where it doesn’t belong and I’m just being myself, taking aim.

We play find the cookie and take long naps and Karyn tucks me in at night. She sent some photos to my person who said, “Yikes, now he’s spoiled rotten!” As it should be.

I’m Rio. I’m a Portuguese Water Dog (a Portie) but I don’t like to go out in the rain and get wet. But I like to drink cold water out of the pitcher as Karyn pours it into my water bowl like a waterfall. Must […]

Senior Dog Guapo Loves Bed & Biscuit Boarding, Tucson

Senior Dog Guapo Loves Bed & Biscuit Boarding, Tucson

Guapo = Handsome

Hey, it’s me Guapo (pronounced Whop-po). I am an 8 years young wild and crazy guy. I don’t bark; I squeal like a pig. I am a good boy, a best boy, a lover boy – that is according to Karyn who cannot keep her hands off me. She always pets me and loves up on me. She calls it Love Fest 2018.                                                       

My people went far away but they are coming back tomorrow; I have been here almost two weeks! Time flies. I like hanging out with Daisy and Girlfriend greyhounds. They are like my big sisters. We all eat together (but in different areas around the house), pee and poop together, frolic on the patio and go for  walks together.

Ain’t love grand?
