About Us. .
A little information about us...
About us, our pets, our business and naturally4pets.com.
We are a family of four with four dogs; 3 greyhounds and a toy poodle. Yes, I did say toy poodle.
Reggie (left), our toy poodle is the oldest of our dogs. He is a young 15 years old, full of life and attitude. We brought our tiny bundle of joy home at 12 weeks old.
Mandy (right), is our oldest and first greyhound. She joined our family when she was four years old after a successful racing career in Florida. She is now almost 12 years old and although she has slowed down some, she is still very full of life. We couldn't have got a better introduction into the world of greyhounds.
Shadow (left) was adopted six months after Mandy, at 2 years old. He did not have a racing career as it was decided he was not a good racer. That was a decision of his breeders that gave us a wonderful, full of personality dog. He was a challenge for the first two years after we brought him home. It took us a good part of a year to figure out why he was sick (which is probably why he didn't race well). He has serious food allergies, and environmental allergies to a lesser degree. The second year was spent figuring out what foods he is allergic to. It would be easier for me to list the foods that he can eat rather than the foods he can't...After tons of research, we put him on a strict RAW food diet and he has been doing extremely well ever since.
Rowdy (aka: Rowdy Roo)(right) was pre-adopted through the Follow That Hound program. We pre-adopted him within days of his birth, watched him grow up and train (via video) and watched his racing career in Florida (via internet). The whole process was very exciting. Rowdy came home when he was three years old, and quickly and seamlessly became a part of our family.
Through the pre-adoption program, we became friends with his owners and learned alot about the greyhound racing industry. We also realized that "our friends" kennel is one of the best and most respected in the country as they do things a little differently than most kennels - all their dogs are well-socialized, treated extremely well and are well-loved. All this extra effort on their parts results in excellent racers as the dogs are very happy, healthy, aim to please - many are excellent racers. When their dogs are ready to go to their "forever homes" after their racing careers, we, the new owners get a wonderful, happy, healthy and well-behaved dog. Can't beat that...
About us and some of our previous dogs.
Over the past few years, we have lost two dogs.
Coco was our miniature poodle that we adopted when he was a puppy. He lived to be 18 years old and passed away in February 2007 due to old age. He was very happy, was my "side-kick" for 18 years and we miss him dearly.
Onyx, a greyhound that we adopted at 8 years old, also passed away of an old age related illness. He left us in October 2008 at the ripe old age of 13. Although he had a difficult start to his life (we adopted him from a home that did not treat him well), the four+ years he was part of our family, he was very happy. We miss our goofy old boy.
We have also had a number of cats in our family over the years but as my husband has developed an allergy to cats, we can no longer have those wonderful, fun animals in our house.
Each of our dogs has their very own unique personality and we love each and everyone of our dogs equally.
We love to help out getting greyhounds that are slated to go home, get to their new homes. So far, we have helped two greyhounds to their new families. We find this a very rewarding experience and plan to do this as many times as we can.
Well, enough about us...as you can tell, we are very passionate about our dogs.
About us and our passion for pets and their welfare.
We decided to create the naturally4pets website as a place for all things pets as we have spent many hours searching on the web for specific information or products. We know how time-consuming this can be, time that many of us don't have to
spare, so we thought it would be a good idea if everyone could have one place where a great deal of the information could be
found. Making this web site a place for pet products, pet information, grooming, health care, pet training and natural pet
information all in one location.
We hope that you find what you are looking for here. If not, please feel free to contact us to let us know what we are
missing and we'll do our best to find the information and add it.
