It's been a while and I thought you might want an update on your main boy.
So, what can I say as Brownie's foster mom? He is a really special guy. We are still diligently working to get him 100% pain free and mobile on his recovering fractured leg. While Brownie may have galloped to victory with blazing speed pre-retirement; the name of the game now is slow and steady wins the race. We appreciate you following his progress and patiently waiting for a chance to meet this wonderful greyhound.
So, you may be curious about this blog title. Well, Brownie's "cover" isn't aesthetically perfect. He has a little piece missing from one of his ears. He has some scars on his back and side. He has a little kink in his tail as well (no doubt from the circles he spins when he's excited to see his favorite person). He may always have a little hitch in his step, even when he's fully recovered.
But...you know what? When you look beyond those small imperfections, you'll find the most beautiful soul. His big brown eyes just melt your heart. His chocolate colored fur sticks up in all directions on his nose in the cutest way. His "helicopter tail" spins so fast you'd think he would lift off the ground when he greets you. He leans on you when he wants love, and if you sit on the floor with him, he will inch closer and closer, so he can have his paw touching you. He's patient and gentle with children. He's exuberant about meeting new people and getting petted. He sings a happy song when he hears you coming in the door.
These and more are all the reasons to let Brownie into your heart. Stay tuned for more PUPdates as his recovery continues.
Lara and Brownie
