The Last of the Reindogs

Cat_243_dover_29 From Mary Jo

The Wenchly hiatus is drawing to a close, so this will be the last of my reindog posts. (Again, many thanks to Laura Resnick for giving me permission to post some of her pictures.) 

As I mentioned at the beginning, Cincinnati’s annual Reindog Parade is sponsored by the local SPCA chapter to highlight adoption.  I have a special fondness for the SPCA–in fact, I just wrote my local chapter a year end donation as a continuing thanks for saving my little cat guys and taking good care of them till I came along.  (Almost exactly 7 years ago, in fact.) 

If you’re a pet person who feels that your house is short some fur and feet, maybe  it’s time to think about adopting.  There are lots of great critters out there that could use a good home and affection.  So here are the Last of the Reindogs, with a  special thanks to animal rescue organizations everywhere:

Hope you’ve had a great holiday season!  Best wishes from Wenches–

  1. I have loved the reindogs! At our house we have just adopted our second rescued racing greyhound (our first one died in September and the house seemed so lonely without him). Our new boy (he’s almost 3) is goofy and playful, as well as a “love sponge” and a “couch potato” (greyhounds mostly sleep all day, interestingly). Also, he’s gorgeous–a beautiful red brindle, all muscle, deep-chested and needle-nosed, with ears that fold like bat wings.

  5. The guy in the green puffy tulle has got to be thinking… “Wardrobe! Someone get me wardrobe. They’ve put the wrong $%&@ costume on me… again!”
    Nina, sad to see the reindogs go but hoping each is enjoying a warm comfy couch in a loving home.

    RevMelinda, you get a gold star for your greyhound rescue! I’ve not known any greyhounds up-close-and-personal, but they are so elegant and graceful. I’m really glad there are networks to give them real homes. Yours sounds gorgeous–esp. the bat wing ears.
    Nina, isn’t it amazing how patient the reindogs are despite owner silliness? 🙂 I’m sure the ones we’ve seen this week are all in loving homes, though probably a lot of them were at the SPCA at one point. Happy endings for all, and to all a good night!

  13. RevMelinda, I once had a rescue Greyhound. They are indeed couch potatoes, and remarkably laid back. I used to show Dobermans and Boxers, but when I retired from the show ring I started taking in rescue Dobies and Boxers from the Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue. My two cats, Lord Byron and Christopher the Assassin, are also rescue cats just like Mary Jo’s. Right now Byron and Christopher are thundering up and down the hallway chasing each other, with occasional side attacks on Nova, my ever patient Doberman.
    Rescue organizations have a special place in my heart. I hope all of the reindogs found loving, happy homes. Mary Jo (and Laura Resnick), thank you for sharing the reindog photos with us over the holidays

  17. Mary Jo, thank you so much for posting the Reindogs pictures. I think the dogs have as much fun getting dressed up as most of us do for costume parties. Some of them definitely look as though they’re having fun. Others look…patient.
