The wind plucks
last apples from the tree
stirs the sea
rearranges the shore line
the way we walk our dreams.

Tanka: Created With Love

 

black whippet in black coat and snood by loch shore.

We do not have much body fat or fur and wrap up warm in the morning mist. There is a chill in the air and it feels colder when the skies are clear. Kind-hearted souls knit snoods and sew coats to help homeless hounds. The money goes towards helping the dogs with veterinary care, food and shelter until a permanent new home can be found.

Greyhound eyes
deserve to sparkle
like the sky
small acts of kindness
save many gentle souls.

We send you all so much love,

Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

The snoods and coats Eivor and Pearl are wearing can be bought from Forever Hounds Trust. If you live in the UK and are interested in volunteering please contact them as they are always looking for volunteers.
