Our Mixed Breed Friends

After I posted a comment over at Dolittler about Ginko and mentioned he’s a lab-greyhound mix, a college-age gal named Angela emailed me directly. It turns out we have more in common than this particular mixed breed of dog since Angela is studying journalism and wants to write/edit in her career. So, we had much to bond about, especially our handsome, handsome canine boys.

Angela’s Sully looks much more greyhound-like, with a narrower head and his brindle coloring. My Ginko has more of a lab-ish front, tacked on to a greyhound back. BOTH sport the biggest, most kissable noses.

Here is Sully:

(So sorry to say the photos got lost when we moved the blog years ago.)

And, here … for those who have not read about Ginko before, is my big boy. I love this shot below because you can see just how long his legs and his tail are. Very, very, greyhound-ish.
