  1. Logan thanks everyone for the well-wishes!
  2. Logan turned 11 yesterday. I took off early afternoon and got him some treats, and walked him down in the park. But he was not too interested in walking as we were in the 80's for the first time this year. (He starts slowing down when it gets into the 70's :-) He also was not being very photogenic, these are the best pictures I got:
  3. Logan is closing in on 8 years with me, and has only had one collar, which I think goes well with his brindle. Here it is:
  4. Glad Abu is better, but my question is this. Buying sauerkraut in a tin? As a German household, I would have expected you to have homemade sauerkraut on hand, made with a secret family recipe :-)
  5. Part of dog ownership is learning about each other and learning how to compromise with each other - both ways. Some possibilities: Sleeping at night. Would it be possible to add a dog gate at your bedroom door, and put a dog bed just outside that gate? That way your greyhound can see you and sleep comfortably, but you still have your own space. May or may not work, but something to try. I would expect that he may still cry for a while since he is gated away, but should get tired and fall asleep. After a few nights he would likely get into the habit of just going to sleep on the provided d
  6. Congratulations on adopting a senior! This summer when Logan was 10.5 years he had a dental, no issues. I mentioned to the vet that I would probably not have another one done on him due to his age (i.e., 11 or 12 years old next time), and the vet said he would go entirely by how healthy the dog is at that time, and not by the age. I guess another consideration is whether the teeth are actually bothering her. Hard to tell of course, but is she unwilling to eat hard treats (like milkbones), or showing signs of pain when eating? If not, I might tend to lean against having a dental don
  7. On the other hand, Grace may be saying you need to spend more money on a second, lighter coat for these "warmer" -5C days -- the fleece-lined coat should only come out when gets below -10C :-)
  8. Logan rushes to the door when I get home. He sleeps in my bedroom at night. (Well, he does usually spend some of the night on his comfy couch or chair, but is in the bedroom by morning :-) He gets upset if I don't spend time with him in the evening after our walk and his dinner. He will usually come and lie down in whatever room I am in.
  9. A lot of pet stores allow well-behaved dogs inside nowadays. I think some other types of stores do as well, Home Depot comes to mind but not sure about them. So if you think Cleo will behave himself (not lifting his leg or getting into it with other dogs et cetera) then that could be a nice outing.
  10. Those are amazing freeze-frame shots, congratulations on capturing them. Do they go at it like that often?
  11. Given how old the last post in this thread is, I guess I'm one of the last still with a hound on HealthyPaws. Just got an email that in sixty days the monthly premium will go up from $57 to $102. I will be canceling when I get home tonight. What I'm kicking myself over is, I got Logan at just past 3 years old, and he just turned 10 1/2 two days ago. Never had a reimbursement from HP (thankfully, Logan has been healthy, the few expenses he has had were below the deductible). So, that is about 7 1/2 years or 90 months. Granted, the premium started out lower (I think around $30 or so initia
