While I'm at work, Kurt has been taking the pups on morning morel hunts in the woods nearby.

Last week I worked long hours, even on Saturday. I was pooped! Luckily, I have a sweet husband who surprised me with my favorite treats and brought me breakfast in bed. What a catch.

Of course, no Lately post would be complete without our weekly pre-consumption photos of beer and meat. From top: beautiful and locally raised lamb rib chops, snacks (braciola, prosciutto and mozzarella stuffed pickled peppers, Capriole's Old Kentucky Tomme, country ham, soppressata), Tripel Karmeliet.

    1. Hi Nicole! I live in Louisville, KY and there is a Greyhound rescue called Shamrock (http://www.greyhoundsofshamrock.org/). They mostly find homes for retired racing greyhounds, but they also deal with igs and whippets too. Perhaps check and see if there is a similar outfit near you? I have noticed there are many rescue igs listed on Petfinder.com. You can type in your location and it will show you those within a certain mile radius. Harold is actually from a breeder. If you go that route, be sure to make sure the breeder is legit and has good reviews - one way to be sure is if they are recommended by the Italian Greyhound Club of America: http://www.italiangreyhound.org/pages/200about_igs.html. I say this because IGs are notorious for being sold by puppy mills and sometimes its hard to tell from an ad if the breeder is legit or not. Good luck! I love talking about IGs - I can go on and on forever! If you have any more questions or need advice send me an email at johannainman@gmail.com.
