|This is Butternut! We adopted her on November 19th, '05. Her racing name was
Whynot Chocolate. She was one of three females Tina and I helped transport from
south of Atlanta to SEGA's adoption kennel in Acworth the week before. She was
such a happy, tail wagging girl, we just couldn't pass her up. Since it was near
Thanksgiving, and with the Christmas holidays just around the corner, we named
her Butternut. Being a very outgoing, friendly dog, she'll do well as a therapy dog
visiting nursing homes and children's hospitals. She did quite well as a racer, with
one 15 race stretch in late 2004 that she took 1st place ten times.
|Butternut has got to be the friendliest, sweetest dog I've ever met. She
sleeps between Tina and I every night. She's the only Greyhound
we've ever encouraged to sleep on our bed with us. Of course, by
morning it's gotten a great deal more crowded, because Gretz and
Windy have usually found their way up at some point during the night.
