Fall Pictures, Summer Request

Hello NLGA Dog Blog Readers,

Just a reminder...we need your pictures for the 2015 NLGA calendar!  As a very polite nudge to encourage the submission of your photos we brought back Task Tuesday to make submitting photos for the calendar really, really easy!

The Stunning Boy Chita

Last Tuesday we suggested fall photos.  For next week we are suggesting summer photos (but if it prompts you to simply look through your photos and send us your favorites...we'll take any of them!)

Happy Gotcha Day Needles!

Hello NLGA Dog Blog Readers!

We have a 1st Gotcha Day to celebrate today!


We're excited to note that Needle (formerly What You Need) will celebrate one year "on the outside" this week, so we thought we'd share some of his best moments in pictures.

Come Meet the New Dogs

Many of you have adopted Greyhounds from NLGA or other groups and have treasured your hounds.

Oh, they may have been great from the start, or they may have needed some tweaking to make them the wonderful pets they have become.  One constant is likely, they were fostered before you adopted them.  They had a clue about what was expected from them, and whatever it was they still had to learn, you can be assured it was much easier because they did have some previous home experience.  It was that experience that makes the difference between a successful placement and a failure.  We need you to help us be SUCCESSFUL.  Occasionally there is the push button greyhound out there who is perfect as a pet from the get go, but the majority of them are what they are because of the efforts (sometimes a little, sometimes a whole lot) of a dedicated foster parent.
