Black is beautiful...Greyhounds of the Verde Valley

Beading Divas to the Rescue continue to sell bracelets for the Greyhounds of Verde Valley during the month of January 2011.  We’ve added more bracelets to our Etsy site so you can buy them online for $20 (all of it goes to GVV) plus $3 for S&H which pays our costs to mail.

Here a story from Greyhounds Verde Valley:

Did you know that black greyhounds are the hardest to rehome?

Unfortunately statistics prove that black greyhounds are the hardest to home. Why? A black greyhound in superb condition is absolutely stunning. A black greyhound in need of some T.L.C. is unfortunately not so stunning and they can look far worse than other colors. Having a black coat means that curable problems like dandruff, bald patches or simply a winter coat can be off-putting, everything seems to show more on a black coat. However with a little TLC you will have a gleaming, shiny beauty.

One Sedona family is bucking this trend and currently has six (yes that is six!) black greyhounds – to keep their black Labrador rescue dog company.

“We always heard that black dogs were less adoptable so we told GVV that we would take all the black greyhounds they get.  Who knew we would end up with so many – but they are such a joy and I tell my wife that greyhounds are like potato chips – you can’t have just one.”

The black greyhound gang (and Nik) are pictured at the Kanab, Utah gathering in 2010. These black dogs have color coded collars so you can tell who is who quickly.

Here’s a beautiful bracelet to complement your black greyhounds or that black outfit you like to wear. (photo: Michelle Caillet)

What do beads have to do with Tucson greyhounds?

Well, adopted greyhounds Opal and Rider suffered $14,000 worth of life-saving vet bills after a hit-and-run accident, and some fellow greyhound adopters and friends of Elizabeth (Lizzie) Mead are making one-of-a-kind beaded bracelets to raise funds to pay off the vet bill.

So far we have sold over 50 bracelets ($20/each) made from donated beads.

We know you’re out there with some unused beads tucked away in your drawers and closets.   It’s the cusp of the Tucson Gem Show and as you buy new baubles and beads, please consider filtering some of your old beads in our direction. Our bead coffers are getting low. We also accept memory wire for bracelets and animal fobs.

View bracelets for sale online.

Contact karynzoldan@yahoo.com to arrange pick up (in Tucson area).

You can read more about the hit-and-run accident here.

Buy bracelets to help raise funds for the $14,000 vet bill that greyhounds Opal and Rider sustained during a hit-and-run accident.

Opal’s eye popped out. Rider had 800+ stitches and his spleen removed. Both greyhounds and Elizabeth (Lizzie) are on the mend and in good spirits. She is still getting physical therapy for her elbow. 

Please consider buying a one-of-a-kind bracelet or two for yourself and your special friend, mom, grandmother, favorite aunt, dog-sitter.

All the bracelet supplies and labor have been donated so the monies raised goes directly to help pay the staggering vet bill sustained at Pima Pet Clinic in Tucson, Ariz.

–Beaded bracelets are now online at Greyt Escape.

–If you are local to Tucson, you will also find Opal and Rider beaded bracelets at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue.

–And on the 3rd Saturday of every month (weather permitting), you will find Greyt Escape at the Spanish Trail Farmers Market selling her beautiful dog collars, accessories, and Opal and Rider beaded bracelets.

Bracelets cost $20.
