Blaze (AKC), 1970-1982.

Colonial Acres Blaze of Egypt (Ch. Aroi Blue Tiger Blues x Ch. Colonial Acres Lady Luck) was my first Greyhound. We took part in dog shows, junior showmanship, and 4-H obedience together. I wonder if he was the first Grey in 4-H. We won a Purina award and represented our county at the state fair. He also learned many tricks and was a popular "ambassadog," especially among hospitalized veterans.
Blaze was such a great dog that he inspired me to helping Greyhounds, regardless of their background. In those days, not much was being done in the Greyhound rescue field, but I hoped to find a way to give a home to a retired racer eventually.
I've since learned that retired racers (NGA Greys) are some of the sweetest, smartest, most wonderful pets available. This site is dedicated to them.

Please come back and meet our other dogs.
