A new addition to the Skrocki family...

ellie-lola ...we adopted a greyhound this weekend. The application, interview, and search process was a bit drawn out, but it paid off. Lola is now an official member of the Skrocki family.

Her tale (not tail) is a bit sad...she's 2 years old and has lived her entire life in a kennel for racing greyhounds. She's under weight, had worms, ear mites, sores/calluses on her joints from being cooped up in a kennel since she was a puppy, and has a severely dampened spirit. It's very sad, but all fixable! And despite it all she smiles a lot and loves people.

Ellie (the pointer, beagle, dalmation mix that we adopted last year) loves Lola. Ellie's pre-adopted mug shot from when she was in the Boulder Humane Society (BHS) is posted above...I fell in love with her based on this photo. The BHS does such a great job of adopting out homeless animals that they ship them in from other states...Ellie came from Mississippi.

If you're thinking about getting a pet, check out your local animal shelter's website.
