  1. Happy Birthday, Petunia! Looks like you had a good celebration. 🎉
  2. No, not a broodie. She was one of our “two yutes” adopted right after they turned 3 yrs old. She was the baby of the family for over a decade, just following the other dogs’ lead. Those dogs have “aged out” ☹️ and Su is now an only dog. I think she is finally recognizing the power she has always had at her command. To paraphrase the song, “I am biotch; hear me whine!”
  3. Texts from boyfriend yesterday morning: 1) "Su is crying"; 2) "Su is crying again" First text today: "Su came into the bedroom crying" My office is upstairs and our bedroom is downstairs. BF always sleeps in very late, like 2-3 PM late, but likes to have the bedroom door open. Clearly Su has learned to use this to her advantage. If she doesn't feel like coming upstairs to let me know she wants something, she just goes into our bedroom downstairs and whines to BF. Sleepy BF, not wanting to come upstairs either, then texts me with Su's request. So my dog is sending me texts via dictation!
  4. Logan, you handsome devil! May you have many more years to investigate the yellow snow and it's greener versions.
  5. Am looking for ideas on waterproofing our existing dog beds. I've purchased waterproof outer covers and/or liners before, with limited success on those being truly waterproof. I've used shower curtains as the liner by just wrapping those around the inner foam. That worked better. Was just wondering if anyone had a better idea. Has anyone tried the wash-in waterproofing products meant for outdoor gear? If you're wondering why, it is because we have had repeat problems with dogs or a certain cat peeing on the beds. (Not Tasty Kitty. She's far too discerning for that.) We seem to always have at least one senior pet with intermittent accidents. I'm fine with frequently washing the covers, but don't want to deal with washing the whole bed that often. Nor am I up for purchasing expensive new beds that Sunita, "The Princess and the Pea" Greyhound, will refuse to use. "Oh, whoa is I. I must lay here on the uncomfortable carpet because the humans won't give me an acceptable bed. Pity me." She will seriously get up repeatedly, sigh, spin in a circle, lay down on carpet near the naked, uncovered bed, sigh some more, get up, stare at me, sigh yet again, spin again, lay down again with a harumph, and lather, rinse, repeat until her currently desired bed, always the one needing washing, is once again recovered and restored to an acceptable level. Ugh! If you think the dog bed issue sounds annoying, you should try feeding Miss Picky Pants. But good heavens, I adore this little girl! She's totally worth it.
  6. My dog goes with us when we travel. She isn’t a fan of riding in the car but does love the camper. When switching from the little Aliner to the new, little toy hauler, she made the switched with no problems. She loves strolling through the campground, schmoozing with her adoring public. We’ve traveled & camped with numerous dogs using tents, trailers or just the van. It’s more work than going without pets but the pros outweigh the cons. We do have to ensure we have electricity to run the AC in Summer. That changes the sites/campgrounds we can stay in. Greyhounds have been easy to travel & camp with, on the whole.
  7. In my experience, most Yorkies don’t need attack training. It send to be instinctive.
  8. As others have mentioned, it is part of our homeowners policy. In my case, we have unusually high level of coverage because I have horse. It’s so high they had to get special coverage the insurer termed “incidental farming”. What the heck is incidental farming? But the dogs are lumped into that, also.
  9. So were they intentionally going for a cartoon character look with the Greyhound? The Kew one looks like it wants a Scooby snack.
  10. Am so sorry it didn't work out and very, very sorry it was in such a spectacular way. Wishing Sadie good luck in quickly finding a wonderful new home. Get well quickly, Petunia!
  11. Please sir, may I have another! Such a cutie.
  12. He’s so adorable!! My smartest dogs have all been Greyhounds. The retrievers don’t hold an intellectual candle to the Greys. As you say though, they don’t learn commands to please me. They do it when it pleases them.
  13. Jeter has mastered my favorite motto, practice persistence. Good job, Jeter. Also, I’d have had to remove my hearing aid so I’d be hearing it in just one ear.
  14. Su applauds Buddy’s quickness. Always better to grab more & ask forgiveness later. However, it points out two basic unfairnesses. First, Bubby really should have gotten both the cone & the hose apple. Second, Su is no longer allowed in the pasture, meaning she can see those horse apples on the other side of the fence but never gets a chance to taste test.
