  1. I am trying to make a list of tips and tricks to help houndie owners dealing with issues in caring for their hounds. Specifically, I am looking for a photo that I can use of greyhound wearing either shorts, or sweat type pants that have been used to prevent the pup from licking the rear areas. I know that I have seen them, but since I want a photo now, cannot locate. Can someone help me? Thanks
  2. Just runnin frew again. So much to do and so little time rite now. Before me forgets, some ob you was wanting to know what you could do here is da linky to da Tattoo Times ob our group with da stories and linkies ifn you is interested. http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Healing-thoughts-for-all-affected-by-Harvey------.html?soid=1102697249127&aid=TpHjfXvwa5I Da house fix it guys is comin soon and gonna start puttin da house back together. First is to rip out da rock on da exterior walls ob my boodooior and fix da OSB sheeting dat got damaged in da flood. When dat is done, fix all da inside walls. Den we wait til da flooring company gets un-backordered to put da new floor down. Den we will need to start puttin back all da stuff that has been dissappearing into boxes so it can be mobed out ob da way for da flooring peeps. Oh yeah, momma decided to leabs me again. Herbs gott toted out da door in da middle ob da nite again. Dis has gots to stop. Dem parra-medics and sherrif guy refused to let me out ob jail when dey stole my momma. Eye was a good girl and did not hab any accidents before eye was rescued. But sheesh, momma lefted me pee pee pads for a reason, just dem emergency peeps refused to let me at em. Sheesharoni!!! Anywho, she is back home and we is back together. Just a relapse, overdoing it and stress. The cat scan showed excess inflammation at the site of the hernia repair, so got to rest more, and suck it up. Momma, you don't let me tic tic much, eye is so behind, and now you is stealin my time...Harrrumph. eye gonna go sulk Take dis momma, CLICK.........
  3. Runnin frew, cause eye gots tickles in my towsies. Did not habs ability to communicate yesterday. But we is back today. Yesterday, late, we had a few rays ob sunnyshine come out. Momma would not let me go sunbaf cause she said dat da yard was still deep muck. Last night and dis mornin we gots more rains, but it is da backside ob da storm so dey is light. More nusence dan anythin else. Harvey is strikin more habboc about ninetyleben miles to da east now. Der is houndie rescues ober der, and we is hopin dey is all gonna be safe. Dat area is called Beaumont. Ifn you gots any more good mojo to send out, start finkin ob dem folks too. Dey is gonna need da help. Momma sposed to go for herbs surgehurry cheeckup, and cannot find out if da office is open or if da feeder roads to get der is open. She did check da webbysite this morning,, and it is two days old. Foooooey! How dat spose to help. Don't get me wrong, it is berry important to concentrate on da harder hit areas, but we is needing info in our areas too. Just sayin. Oh funny story time: We is berry lucky in our kennel dat da kennelmaster Robby, libes with dem houndies. Well, weneber der was a break and hims could get some houndies outside to stretch der leggies, hims done it. One ob da girlie girl houndies took adbantage ob Robby, who is ob senior persuasion, and refused to let hims take herbs back inside. She ran, played, jumped and spun all ober one ob da yards just outside ob hims reach. She is a playful girl and me would gibs anythin to habs a video ob herbs tauntin Robby. Da visual is just too funny knowin Robby. Hims is so greyhound saavy to get bested by a houndie! Hope you can enjoy da story too! Eye cannot say how much it meant for all my friends to hold my paw and momma's hand as we faced this nasty storm. You all are da bestest. Don't want to tie up da interwebby, need to share so someone else can tell der family HI! Dottie
  4. Weatver report from Texas Last night was da worst so far. Windy blowin gusts to firtyleben mph, sheets ob rains, and a liddle funderboomers. Nothin sever, it just is not stoppin. Today, da bulls eye is concentratin on our neck ob da woods. Houston is gettin a break so dey can get dem peeps and pets out. Still gots power, but da cell coberage keeps commin and going. Our webby serbice depends on wifi. FYI--der is some folks across da country that ain't gots nuthin better to do than complain "EVACUATION" issue. Houston is the 4th largest city in the U.S. No one could have known that parts of town that have never flooded in the last 100 years would flood now. So get off your high horse, roll up your sleebes and volunteer, open dat wallet, or just shut up and thank your lucky stars you are not in the thick of it. Sorry for the rant, but it just rubs my furs da wrong way sometimes. Me is gettin better at pottying in da rain. Eye still don't like it, but it could be worse. Da neighbors cows up da road, is bawlin and mooing and carryin on dis morning. Guess dey is unhappy dat der salad fixins is soggy in da dressin ob wadders. Oh, funny story. Anyone wants to hear??? Last night, dem froggies has decided to hold a concert to attract some girl froggies. Da racket dey made at times was so loud dat it drowned out da rainy rain and wind noises. Who would habs thunk dat froggies can make so much noise. Sheesh, how is a girl houndie sposed to get any beauty naps. Better send dis before we is cut off da interwebs again. Bye all, Dottie
  5. Morning to all my friends. Well, it is still kind ob dark, but me thinks it is morning. Da timer thingy on da wall is pointing da big hand to 12 and da liddle hand to 9. Da rainy rains is comin down in buckets now. Eye was a determined girlie last night and refused to go out in da deluge. And eye could just not bring myownself to potty in da house eben do momma said eye could. Me finally just runned out pottied and runned back in. Momma met me with a wonderful fluffy towel. Now eye is just chilaxzin listening to da storm rage. Momma is watchin da news when eber it is on between da signal disruption. Dem folks down in Houston is really floatin. Oh, der is a neighborhood down der called Friendswood. Some ob my group hounds libs der. Parts dem folks is up on der roofs cause da wadders is so deep. Da policemans boats habs runned out ob fuel a couple times, and now Texas proud peeps are wadin frew da watters bringin fibe gallon jugs ob fuel to da policemans so dey can keep pullin folks offa dem houses. It is just so nice to see da policemans and folks ob all races gettin along in peace and helpfulness for a change. We habs had about twelbe to fifteenlebenty inces ob rainy rain so far, and dey is now talkin dat der will be maybe that much more just today. There is a possible chance dat der will be eben more dan dat. Dat is lots ob waders. We is drainin pretty good. Da highway folks must habs got da drain open at da bottom ob da hill cause da lake der is not berry high rite now. Da lights is flickerin once in a while, but mostly dey is stayin on. Momma is happy bout dat. This PM we is to be expectin funderboomers and more whirly freats ob wind. Dat is just not fun for my nerbes. Oh oh, da lights if lickerin pretty good, so better send dis before da lectricty goes out for good. Fanks for da lubs and good wishes. We is habbin da bestest ob friends in you all. Dottie trying to be brabe so JJ will be proud ob me
  6. Well it did not last, da bad stuffs is here now. Eye and momma are mobin into da indoor cabe. Whirly winds and seber funderboomers is here now. So momma says eye can hide in dignity.
  7. Checkin in from soggy souf east Texas. Der habs been no more funder boomers since dat one boom last night. But da drip drip drippity drip outside keeps comin down. Der is no urgency here yet. Eye ate my breakie and now eye is tucked in on my snuggly bed. Da tv keeps comin and goin out. Da cell coverage is going off and on. Da piccies from Rockport and Ft. Bend County areas looks so bad. But dat is a more dan hundred and fifftylebeen miles from here. We is just getting dem feeder bands as da storm rotates around so far. Bye for now Dottie so far A-OK.
  8. First feeder band is coming through right now, Just before it started, Momma tried to make me go potty but eye showed herbs. No way, no how me gonna get my furs damp. Oh da windy stuffs is blowin way down where da old kennel used to be. So glad da houndies don't libes down der anymore. Dis gonna be a long PM and ebening. Oh, da neighbor man came ober and brought another 5 gallon ob gas for da generator. he said hims would be abailable to lift da big jug when it was needed to keep da generator ready to go wheneber momma pushes da button. Me lubs my neighbors. Momma keeps watchin da weaver stuff to see da progress. Herbs is saying dat some peeps isso stupid. On one ob da barrier islands, da people is complainin dat da mayors did not order a bacuation. And now it is too late, der is no gas for dem to puts in der cars to leabes. Duh. You libs right smack in da danger zone, and you habs to be told tomake preppies or leabes? Just not da brightest bulb in dat gene pool. Oh, der is a funder boomer, gotta run and hide. Dottie da chicken
  9. Well, momma habs done eberythin she can think ob. Dis misser harvey storm is blowing up big and fast. Hims is gonna be a meany pants to dis part ob Texas. Eye will try to be brabe, but a storm dat will last for days and days and days. Dey is now talking about up to firtysixlebenty inches ob rain before it is moving on. Eye gonna need water wings me thinks. Momma called da state highway folks to report dat da wader culbert dat goes under da highway is clogged, and hopefully dey will get it unclogged so da waders will not back up too high on da south side. Da good news on dat side ob my yard is dat ifn it clog stays and da wadder backs up, den da altitude ob da highway is lower than where da house sits. So no back up to da house, but da state highway will be oberrunned with wadders and possible wash out ob da highway. Dat means no body will go wizzing past. All da moldy carpet was remobed yesterday so we is down to just da bare concrete. Ifn eye habs an accident it will be easy to clean up. Whew!!! Also momma will puts down lots ob pee pee pads, just in case. Eye is afeared ob storms so much. She has put up lots ob baby gates and hexpen pannels to keeps me out ob most ob da house. Herbs puts my sole surbibing huge bed in da big closet so ifn da whirly winds happen, we can habs a safe room dat is in da center ob da house. Momma also got herbs a weaver radio dat you got to crank for juice to keep abreast ob da storm status. And she gots a portable battery for da cell phone to plug in and get more juice. Eye sure hopes da lectricity don't die, but da last hurrycane da lectricity was out almost a week. On da house issue, more damage was uncobered . So puttin my house back together is gonna take months now. Da UnServePro peeps lefted wet insulation sit for almost a month in da walls dey refused to open up and it ruint da outside wall OhEssBee sheeting, it is just coming all unglued. Dey will habs to remobe da rocks from da outside ob da house to fix it. We are talking about maybe fortylebentyfoots worth ob rock siding. That is gonna be tough. Dey habs to fix da outside ob da house before dey will fix da inside ob da house. Momma is trying to crawl into a hole and pull it in behind herbs rite now, and eye gots my pawsies full holding herbs back. Eye may not habs a putor to talk much during da storm, but will try as long as eye can to stay in touch. All my friends are just da best in der suggestions. Fanks from da bottom ob my gynormous heart to each ob you. See you all on da other side! Dottie gonna bite dat harvey guy Eye may not habs a putor to talk, but will try as long as eye can to stay in touch. All my friends are just da best in der suggestions. Fanks from da bottom ob my gynormous heart to each ob you.
  10. Dottie momma here. Question to all the techno experts.... What should I buy to run my cell phone when the power goes out. We are expecting a tropical storm beginning Friday. I have a generator, but since the storm is expected to last up to 5 days with up to 16" of rain, I may not be able to keep it running that long. Suggestions appreciated.
  11. Runnin frew dis humid day. It is so hot and humid dat eye fink da reader ob da temmpy is on strike. It goes to 99.99 and den it went ------ Guess when it is dat hot it don't make no difference. Momma says eye am being a really pesto today. She habs yelled at me seberal times today. Snifffff. Momma lefted herbs breakie drink on da side table while she was watchin tb. Eye snuck up behind herbs and rolled my tungue into a roll and stuck it down da neck bottle top and sampled herbs liquid. Eye was goin down da bottle for another taste when she catched me, and stole my fun. She called me a thief. Harrumph! Den when she was sweepin dem lubbugs offn da back porch so eye would not bring der carcusse in as eye was runnin in and out, she told me to mob. Me, mob? Well eye just stood der and she swatted me with da broom. That was beneath eben human behavior. So eye pouted a liddle while. Eye contimplated gettin eben. Den eye tooks my chance. Momma made soop for lunch. Made it a liddle too hot, so she sat it on da side table to cool. Eye snuck around da backside again when it was da rite temmypchur and proceeded to lap lap lap it up. Oh did she come unglooded dat time. And to top off all da theivery, eye frew in seberal situations today where eye stuck my face in herbs business and demanded lots ob ear nuggies and massagge ob me own neck and face. Ahhhhh! Me lubs nuggies and massagge. Oh, eye did knock herbs papers and pen on da floor to get herbs to realize eye was serious. Dat should teach herbs to treat me in a manner dat is not how eye should be treated. Momma is tellin me to get off da putoer. Guess eye will habs to get more eben somemore. Eye finks ob you all often. Someday, will get to catch up. Bye for now, Dottie da sneeky
  12. Just the human running through. Evicted from hospital this pm. Dottie was very put out with me. She ignored me the entire trip home. She did not even care for a snuggle after her p.m.cookie. Guess will need major sucking up to the hound. Lots of pain that is expected. Better living through chemistry. I feel another nap coming on. Dottie will be back when she gets over her snit. Hugs to the WFUBCC.

  14. Oh deer, da abuse I habs to puts up with. It is my human again, as usual. I is again behind, so just jumpin in. Dis is getting redunkulous. I miss my friends. Here is da abuse ob dis week: Abondoned for hours and hours. Sometimes twice in one day. Mommy said she is shoppin. But she neber brings home nuthin. Den, dis lady that I thought was my friend showed up and stole my momma. Dey was gone foreber, and me thinks we is starbin. Breakfast was not at a leisurly pace, and momma put da bowl away so me and sissy could not snak as we felt. Den we see dat our motorhoundiehome mobile is parked back in it's special spot. But did we get to go see ifn it was OK? Noooooo! We was thrown out inda yard, told to hurry up, neber gibben a cookie, and off momma and dat un-friended lady went again. What the??????? Our dinner was due in an hour. We almost starbed to death. Neither me nor sissy could drag ourselbes to da door to greet herbs when she showed up. Taught herb a thing or two. Wait, what was that??? Der was a noise in da yard. Me and sissy ran and ran frew da house to see what was in da yard. Den I spied it. What was momma think about??? She is plumb loco and off herbs rocker this time. Der was a berry young liddle girlie houndie in da yard. Momma put our lectors on our faces and let us out one at a time. We sniffed and sniffed, and sniffed. She is just a liddle slip ob a thing and bery shy. Herbs is not eatin much and it has now been twoleben days. We is tryin to help herbs, but she don't wants much to do with us. We is perfect, just ask us. Harrump. Off to ignore my momma for not lubbin us no more. Oh, I gots eben a liddle. I jumped up on da big bed this morning cause momma was tryin to be a slug and sleepin late. I landed rite on herbs and lik lik herbs face cause she could not get herbs arms out from under da cobers. . Felt goo to pin herbs down! There was an emergency foster required. Her dad passed away the middle week of August. Her momma then tripped and had to be hospitalized. The neighbor was trying to take care of the greyhound but did not have time to spend with her so she was beginning to get destructive and causing messes. The neighbor finally called GPAH to see if they could take her back, and the owner tried to leave the hospital because she thought her dog was being taken away from her. I have known her for years socially, and when she found out I would foster her until she could think straight, she agreed to stay in the hospital, and go to rehab when released. So, our group got a GUR going, and transported her the 100 miles or so to my area. She really is a spook. My first spook to care for. So the little girl has been through a lot, and needs so much quiet and patience time. The group will work with the owner to see if she will ever recover enough to go home. Very sad situation. I promised Betsy, I would try harder to let her tic tic with her friends, and now I bring home another houndie. Betsy and Dottie are not pleased at all, but they are trying. The foster is just a little over two years old. The warranty repairs for the motorhome are all completed now, and the modifications so I can handle the heavy and stiff power cords are all done. I was starting to shop for a new vehicle \ that I can tow behind the motorhome when the emergency happened. Sigh, that first voyage alone will have to wait now. Thanks for letting me vent. S
  15. Happy Labor Day! Does dat include all us broodies???? We done labored real hard in our times....... I habs been absynth again lately, but momma needed me so dat is OK. I spent most ob da ebening last night on da big bed with herbs watchin da harry podder mobie. Momma cuddled me and tickled my tummy. It was real good. Dottie is actin like she is gonna be losted again. She don't eben sleeps on herbs bed, but rite beside momma and she is neber leabin momma alone anywhere. Sheesh, that is just too close. We habs missed way too much again. So will just jumps back in. I was da mighty huntress this mornin. Der was dis dumb bunny dat been hangin in my yard. It liked to come up and taunt me frew da winnows. Well, I grabs it this morning, and was tottin it all ober da yard. Dottie wanted to play tug with it, but I said no and kept tottin in around. Den momma come out and told me to drop it, and I done it. Dottie made another grab, and momma had to use herbs outside voice. Man that was loud. But not as loud as dat bun bun was yellin at us all. Den da policeman come and tooks da bun bun away. Somethin about wildlife control. Mayhaps they will teach some control to dat bunny so it don't come back to dis yard with it's impertanence! While momma was watchin it waitin for da policeman, der was a naughty kitty dat made a grab for da bun bun. Momma yelled at it too! It snuck away out into da creeksbed. Maybe I was not da greyt hungress. Perhaps dat kitty got to it first and hurted it. Sigh. Hopes all my friends is healfy and happy as this new week gets underway. Bye for now, Betsy (not so good a hunter me thinks)
