Dinner Time

Happy Saturday!!!

I think my greyhounds are spoiled.  They now eat dinner from their beds in the kitchen.  Panther started this and now Maggie wants her dinner served in bed.  When it is time for dinner, everyone politely lays down and waits to be served. 

It's my own fault for having beds in the kitchen.  The greys like to be near family and we spend most of our time in the kitchen.  

What is dinner time like at your house?  Is it busy and loud or calm and quiet?  Let me know.

New Fence

Now that the weather is a little nicer the neighbors are out for their evening walks. Panther thinks it is fun to hide behind our large pine tree and then spring out at them - barking loudly! He gets a lot of excitement out of this. The neighbors...not so much. :-(

Mr. Grey had the idea to put up a buffer fence to keep the dogs back 10 feet or so from the main fence. We took the dogs outside, showing them the new fence. Everything went well until...a small dog walked passed our house. Panther was off like a shot. Straight through the buffer fencing. Thank goodness the fencing is only plastic or Panther may have been hurt. That idea lasted all of 30 minutes.

Do any of you have problems with your dogs barking at passers by? Maggie could care less, but Panther thinks it is a game. He did not do this last year. If you have any ideas, please let me know. I don't want people to complain or think that Panther is a "mean" dog.

Greyhounds in Gettysburg 2011

I just returned from Gettysburg. I had a greyt time, even though I left the kiddos at home. Maggie just doesn't travel well. She cries the entire time in the car. I met lots of nice people and their dogs. So much greyhound merchandise, I could have spent a fortune. I bought each dog a new collar, a tag clip and a new greyhound sticker for the car.

There was an adoption group for Afghan sight hounds.  The puppies were so cute.

I also attended a greyhound group ghost tour.  The greyhounds were very well behaved.  It was probably a good thing that we did not see any ghosts!!!

I really enjoyed Gettysburg.  Thanks to all for a super event.
