Hey, thanks for coming by this week's Meet & Greet. We're a bit embarrassed because we promised these nice dogs we'd do this post two weeks ago; however, when we went looking for our subject, there wasn't one so no M&G was posted that week. Turned out a certain someone - and we won't tell on Miss Slip of the Fingers but her initials are J A N - deleted the file on us. We'd lock her in the doghouse but not only does it not have a door, but it's guarded by Rusty. He keeps those Nutty Ninja Squirrels and the Cracked Nut Chipmunk Command on retainer.
Without further delay, we'd like to introduce you to Matilda the lovely greyhound and her siblings Livvia and Kes from Mathilda's Journey. Their blog opened in January 2013 to chronicle Matilda's journey with cancer.
My name is Matilda, and adopted from Greyhound Friends of New Jersey. I am an older greyhound recovering from Lymphoma. On August 28 of this year, I completed six months of chemotherapy and I'm in remission.
I have been a Therapy Dog, as well as a thrice-homed dog. Actually, I still am a Therapy Dog. My claim to fame is that I am Gandhi-like. I'm extremely peaceful and friendly, and have rolled with the punches many times.
Oh yes, I'm told that I am very beautiful. You can read about my travels on my blog.
My sister Olivia (Livvie), a rescued Rat Terrier, is from Louisiana via a national rescue group, Ratbone Rescue. She is intense and extremely loving. She writes a page called Livvie Lets Loose, which can be amusing since she has that Rat terrier intensity.
We are all very close, and cuddle and play frequently.
People like to see what I'm up to, and how my health is. My mom started the blog when I was first diagnosed with Lymphoma, and was starting chemo. However, my journey is not only that of a cancer survivor and Therapy Dog who is a greyhound, but a way of living that is peaceful, compassionate and care-taking of other beings. Thanks.
You can read more about Matilda, Kes and Livvie on Matilda's Journey. Their blog is set up quite differently than any we're used to. In order to find their posts, you can click on one of 3 links in the sidebar - Recent Links, Archives or Categories. There is no option at the bottom of the page to go to older or newer posts.
If you would like to be featured in a Meet & Greet, send us a short write-up about your blog and a photo or two. Our contact information is in the left sidebar. You can also send us a write-up on a friend's blog.
Just a reminder - not that any of our M & G subjects have had this on - but we would like to add, if you have word verification on, please turn it off, as it is a problem for many bloggers to read. Check your settings!
