  1. My plan is to allow her back on the chair (she’s been exiled for several days) and if she has any more inappropriate reactions ask her to vacate each time, keeping her off the remainder of that day. Hopefully she’ll eventually understand that the snark/snap is a no-no.
  2. Try Cafe Press. They for sure have that oval sticker with ‘ROO’ on it. https://www.cafepress.com/
  3. Good observation. It’s only happened in the chair. Thank you.
  4. Well, this is a new one for me. Jenny is my third Greyhound and the only one I’ve owned who will snark/snap. She is muzzled when at the vet. Last night, she snarked/snapped at DH when he approached me and again when he reached over the back of the recliner I was sitting in. Both times, Jenny was in the other recliner next to me. I immediately gave her a strong ‘uh-uh’! and had her vacate the chair. Now, do I allow her back on the chair and make her get off if the behavior repeats or make the chair permanently (or temporarily) off limits? Or some other behavior modification? I wonder if she’s guarding me or the chair? Any guidance will be appreciated.
  5. Her vet actually brought it to my attention. I hadn’t noticed it. I’m keeping an eye on it, for now. I tend to think she may have overdone it on a chew and irritated her lips. Chews are off the menu for the time being.
  6. Can anyone think why Jenny’s ordinarily black lips would have turned pink?
  7. My second hound, Lola, had quite a strong, unpleasant odor. Like you, I thought it was ‘kennel’ smell. No amount of shampooing made it go away. She also had beautiful teeth but horrible breath. After I lost Lola suddenly, I began to wonder if the odor wasn’t linked to some underlying illness. The vet never could figure out what happened, but her blood work at the end was completely out of whack. My only suggestion is to get some blood work and urinalysis done just in case. I pray it’s nothing a good shampoo can take care of.
  8. I use Springtime Joint Chewables.
  9. I’m having a brain cramp and I need GT’s help. There’s a great article written by a woman who has performing Greys about how these dogs have never shared their space, never been in a home, etc. Some friends of my son’s are thinking of adopting and I want to share it with them. Is there a link to this article?
  10. Yes, I kept the name Jenny. JRo is one of her many nick names - JennyRoo, JenJen, RooRoo. 😊
  11. Awww...Smoochie seems to be settling in nicely. Thank you for sharing these photos and updates. BTW Jenny has the coldest, drippiest nose of any Grey I have owned and she knows how to use it to get your attention!
