  1. 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
  2. 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 :-)
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Those are amazing freeze-frame shots, congratulations on capturing them. Do they go at it like that often?
  6. 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
  7. Logan trances in those ornamental grass bushes. Not sure the variety, but there are probably a dozen houses on our walking routes that have them, they are belt-height to shoulder-height or so. He won't stop at them all, but occasionally does and may trance for a few minutes. He would probably go longer but I tend to get bored and urge him along (but he is stubborn about it). I don't recall Max ever trancing, so based on my huge database of two greyhounds about 50% of them trance occasionally :-)
  8. My old man Max, passed away in January 2018. He was a double-bounce, came to me at just over 10 years old and made it to almost 13.5 years. He was a wonderful buddy to me, and tolerated (maybe even liked?) by Logan. I actually did not think I would like a black greyhound, but he came as an overflow foster and ended up staying :-) Here is a time sequence from August 2017 (I may have it backwards in time, but I love the last shot).
  9. With almost any squeaky stuffed toy, you can just cut a small slit in it with a knife and pull out the squeaker. It will usually be a hard (or harder) plastic thingy inside the stuffed toy.
  10. These are from yesterday (Sunday Sept. 6). I just liked the way he was laying on his bed, with his weasel toy next to him. Logan is almost 10 1/2 now, but he can still roach as he showed off a bit later (at least, he can if he has some side support): ...and a side shot showing how he does it :-) Thanks for looking...
