Expedia Up-Date

GREAT NEWS....Expedia has been officially adopted by Sally & Phil Huxtable. For those of you who have not had a chance to meet this loving family, they are wonderful people. They have two super daughters, two funny cats and a senior greyhound named Soleil. They fell in love with Expedia from the moment they met her and have wanted to help her in any way possible. They have been taking good care of her. Expedia became a permanent member of the Huxtable family two weeks ago.

Expedia's leg is getting stronger. Dr. Bradley is very pleased at how well her leg's healing has progressed. It will be a long time before she is able to run, however, she is able to enjoy nice walks outdoors. Our little Expedia has a problem in her other back foot that will need a vet's care but we'll tackle that once her "injured leg" is strong enough to handle it. We are so grateful that we were able to get this gentle girl up to Virginia to get her the care that she needed. Can you imagine how much pain she would have had to live with if she had been put into the breeding program?

Again, thanks to everyone for your support. You may go to the web page tracker to see how close we are to our fundraising goal. Any donations to help this kind little greyhound will be greatly appreciated.

To all who donated for Expedia's care (with a special thanks to Mrs. Oliva's Third Grade class), we want to thank you so much. Expedia is a very kind, special, and joyful greyhound and she has really become part of our family already. We are blessed to be her "forever home" and Soleil is very happy to have Expedia as her constant companion. It was actually Soleil that picked Expedia on the day they came up together from Florida. That day was December 15, 2007. Soleil put her head over Expedia's back and we all fell in love with her at the same time. We didn't know then just how hurt she was and it has been a rough road for Expedia. The good news is that she saw Dr. Bradley this week and while she still has a way to go in the healing process, she can take longer walks now and he truly believes she will run again one day. All this was only possible through the dedicated and compassionate efforts of VAGA and all of the kindnesses of those who donated. We would like to express our deepest appreciation to Debbie, Carolyn, Ann and VAGA, as well as each and every one of you that chose to help Expedia.
The Huxtables.
