Hello RMGA fans
My name is Danielle and if you don't know, I'm Rocky Mountain Greyhound Adoption's special senior lady that is up for adoption. Since November is Adopt a Senior month, I've been asked to share my story.
I am 9 years old. My career in racing was cut short when I broke my hock. Until then my race name was You'll Do. Everybody called me Danielle at the kennel. The doctor fixed my hock and the people at the kennel took good care of me. Since I couldn't race anymore, I became a stay at home mom. Just as I was dedicated in my career as a racer, I applied myself very seriously to my new job as mom. In that time, I gave birth to 14 babies.
I'm now at that stage in my life where my children have grown up and left. I'll admit to a bit of empty nest syndrome, but I soon realized how nice it was not to have to take care of others and just be me.
About 10 days ago, I embarked on the start of a new kind of life. It all started when I went for my first car ride and was brought to my new foster home. It was kind of confusing at first, but I'm a smart girl and learned pretty quick how to go up and down the stairs. Admittedly, going potty on the leash and not in the house took a couple days. Hey, not everyone is good in every subject at school.
So here I am in my awesome foster home, just waiting for my own special human. Even though I'm 9 years old and have a limp, I still try to climb trees and go after squirrels. Maybe it's because they remind me of cats. I took a test at the kennel and failed at cats. I hang out with another retired Greyhound at my foster home. My personality is pretty laid back and would have no problems living with a brother or sister in my forever home. My two favorite things are cookies and my bed. I'm really just your typical lazy Greyhound that wants a forever home.
