We met Jacoby (now called Gary) last night -- he came by our house with Lindsay and Agnes, some volunteers with We Adopt Greyhounds. We tested him with SweetPea and Bandit. Jacoby sniffed Pea a bit then was kinda afraid of her the rest of the night, while she tried to make friends with him, even walked under him and between his front paws! Bandit hissed at him like she was gonna attack, but there's not a mean bone in her body, so it's all an act. He shied away from both girls and wasn't fixated on anything except getting some lovin' from us humans.

He's a prince of a dog. Just a sweetheart above all else. He loves being around his people, or any people, really. He's very interested in making new friends and would rather be near people than basically anywhere else. He's going to be 5 years old this month. He's VERY tall, even for a greyhound. He's lived in a house before (that house had a kitty, too), so he's awesome on stairs, completely housebroken, etc. All things that greys who come straight from a track aren't good at. He's brindle with white toes and a white bit on the tip of his tail, like he dunked it in a can of paint by accident. He's gorgeous!

I can't wait for you to meet him! See the rest of his pix from last night on our Flickr gallery:

We'll be picking up our new pup from his foster home probably Sunday, 12/6.

He's named after Red Sox center fielder and Wonderkid (w/ the most stolen bases in the MLB this past year with 64) Jacoby Ellsbury, whom we're both kinda in love with...

    Not only a dog, a HUGE dog!

    But don't tell SweetPea, please... She doesn't know she's supposed to be afraid of him! :-)

    He is exactly the same colouring as my greyhound Cali, and probably just a tad smaller - so gorgeous!

    I've gotten several comments just walking him around the neighborhood about how gorgeous he is. I have to agree. Course I'm in love with him, so...

    One woman even stopped her car outside our house today when we were bringing him home from a short walk before breakfast and said, "I just have to tell you, I love those dogs!" I said, "Don't steal him!" :-)
