Submitted Application!

WOOOOOT!!!!  My application for Winry is officially submitted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been waiting so long for this

It took a lot of convincing, an official dog care contract, and sincere cover letter to get my parents to say "okay" but it will all be worth it in a few short weeks!

There is a notice on their site about how applications may not be responded to before January first, but I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope one of the volunteers isn't too busy :).  It sure would make my holiday!

As for my Christmas in general, it was pretty nice.  I got most of the things I asked for, including a year long subscription to Celebrating Greyhounds magazine, and my new favorite game, Bananagrams.  Winry even got a few presents to share with Niles, namely a pack of three tough multi fabric dog toys with squeakers, and a gift card of her very own from my roommate and good friend Chesska :).  She also still has that gift card to the yuppy puppy pet boutique, come to think of it.  Huh.  Funny how there is a homeless dog out there that already has all these things ^_^  I can't wait to meet her.

The current (?) dogs on the petfinder site that could potentially be Winry that I like:


However, the site hasn't been updated in quite a while, so it's hard to tell if any of these dogs are still potential candidates.  Still, it will be good to have a few names in mind, should any of these gals still be homeless :).

Anyway, off to try and sleep for now, but I'm sure as I acquire new information and updates, my blog and all of you readers will hear of it right away!

Yay Winry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck with your application! We brought our first Greyhound home eleven years ago today. She was the best Christmas gift we ever gave ourselves!
