LAKESIDE SENIORS

Hard as it is for us to believe, Lakeside has been "into" Italian Greyhounds for about 17 years. Several of our "kids" have reached senior status, including a few pictured on other pages of this site -- Kody is now 14 1/2, Patsy is 13, Addie is 12, and Tara is over 13.  We believe that our rescue Bandit is about 13 also. 
Here are a few that are not elsewhere on this site. 
 
Senior dogs are VERY special -- cherish them while you can.

This wonderful little man was Lakeside's first rescue dog.  I acquired Fabio, after seeing an ad in the local "Shopping News."  A woman was moving and selling him along with several pieces of furniture!!  I called her immediately and told her I would take him -- sight unseen.  I have never been sorry.  He is a joy!  Sweet and undemanding -- although when it comes time to go to their pens, he does have a habit of hiding :),  so usually he can be found relaxing on the sofa!
 
Fabio has a cute habit of "dancing" (jumping up and down & twirling around) when he gets excited, but generally he is very laid back.  We sure do love this sweet little man!   He recently turned 14.

 
 
This happy little dude, Scrappy, was turned in to us by a vet in the Valley Forge, PA area.  They had managed to talk his neglectful owners into parting with Scrappy and his housemate, Blue.  Blue was adopted by a wonderful guy in Philly -- but no one wanted little Scrap, who, although very un-IG-like in looks, is total IG in heart!
 
This totally broke my heart, and since he seemed to love me so much already and was so happy here, we decided that this is where he would stay!  He is by my side constantly and has SO much love to give!  A special boy!  The folks that passed him up will never know what they missed!  Scrap is now 11.

 
 
 
 
 
Perry came to us from Donna Bedrick & Fran Marron.  He started off with lots of promise, following in Kody's footsteps as a courser!   However an unfortunate accident (off the coursing field) ended his career.  He was away when this occured, and when he was reunited with me he cried and cried and I knew I could never let him go again.
 
A real "devil dog" when he was young, Perry is very laid back now and is Kody's best bud.  These two really enjoy hanging out together!
 
Perry is 10.
