  1. Rocket let us know when it was 8:15 PM every evening. That's when he had ice cream. Not that he was spoiled. Rocket would be proud to know that other hounds are going to get to eat things they shouldn't have in his honor.
  2. In our other house, Rocket had to walk by the washer and dryer to go out. He scared the crap out of me more than once with that wagging tail hitting the appliances at full wag. Fortunately, he never injured it, but not for lack of trying. Give that sweet girl a big hug from us.
  3. I'm so sorry for your sudden loss. Run-free, Honey.
  4. Seems like yesterday. No doubt in my mind that Seamie sent him.
  5. There are many here with no love for dog parks here due to lots of bad experiences, just like what you are dealing with. Greyhounds play rough, and it can lead to them being mis-labeled as aggressive or result in an injury that looks intentional but is simply a result of play biting. When greyhound groups get the hounds together to play, muzzles are required for this reason and due to the thin greyhound skin that can rip or tear easily. The nipping is play biting to them, but to other dog owners it looks like biting or fighting. Honestly, I would avoid the dog park at all costs before this situation escalates into something that gets blown out of proportion or ends up with your dog being labeled as aggressive. If you have other greyhound owners in the area, it may be better to get a play group together where everyone is muzzled to prevent injury. The problem with only your dog being muzzled at the park is that if a play incident escalates, your dog cannot defend itself and may end up being attacked by the other dogs that aren't muzzled. While there are a few people on GreyTalk who have positive experiences with dog parks, the majority do not, mostly due to the unique attributes of these dogs to play hard being mis-interpreted.
  6. Tricia and Burke, I am so sorry to see this. Holly was beautiful and I am so glad that I got to meet her and spend some time on the beach with her in past years. Your tribute to her was beautiful. This was another case of getting the hound that you need instead of finding the hound you are looking for. Holly was pure proof of that every single day. Run-free, sweet Holly.
  7. That was found in the window of a pet boutique while we were at GRTB. Kate uses it as a pillow. There is also a matching Vladimir doll to go with it. Those are just the ones she's in the process of reading.
  8. It was chilly this morning. We had a cold front go through a few days ago. When your body is acclimated to the dezzert, anything below 75 calls for a parka. Broodies are weird. Cute, but weird....
  9. Kate likes rolling in the leaves - the few we have. Petunia thinks the shady part of the yard is much better.
