    Hiking with my boyfriend Tyler and our almost 4 year old greyhound Max, snuggling up on the couch for a hardcore Netflix binge, writing, reading and blogging.

  1. Thank you so much for your response! It’s given me some direction on how to proceed and made me feel that it’s not a hopeless endeavor. I know I’ll refer back to it as well. Max is getting some nice pets right now during nap time rather than me trying to get 5000 chores done, which I can tell he appreciates. 😌
  2. This is a great idea. I heard from his adoption agency that he didn’t like being crated in the past, but in this situation it might make him feel safer.
  3. I think this might be best for safety. I agree with you that he’s not “misbehaving” through growling, it’s just scary to me because I don’t want him to reach his limit and he just seems to be getting grumpier and grumpier. Sometimes he’ll growl as soon as the toddler walks in the room, even if she’s nowhere near his space.
  4. I know - that would be ideal and we had it when the little one was not so active. We split the big living space in two with the gate, but kiddo needed more room to play and run, so the gate is typically open now and Max has our bedroom to go to which is safe and comfy, but isolated.
  5. Hi all, This is so tough to write about, and I’m a bit at my wit’s end! Needing some fresh perspectives. My hound Max is 7, we’ve had him for 4 years. My kiddo is one and a half. We’ve tried to teach good lessons about petting nicely and we always supervise their interactions. I feel like our house has become too small for them both (1500 sq feet, but 500 of it isn’t dog or toddler safe) and they are constantly vying for the same 1000 sq feet. The toddler LOVES Max, but this feels like a tough age where comprehension of how to be nice hasn’t really caught up. We had some issues
  6. Yikes. Thank you for your take on this, at least I’m not the only one going through this issue. We are putting up some temporary fencing ASAP.
  7. We’ve recently moved from an apartment in the city to a house in a more rural area. I’m used to limited space and leash laws, so is my greyhound Max. Our neighbors have three dogs and lately they’ve taken to letting them wander in the front yard, and whenever they see my dog they come running for us, until I yell and stomp and throw things to get them off my property. Not ideal. My boy is not good with non-greyhounds and would fight or bite a dog who ran up to him while he’s on leash. I’ve told the neighbor that he is not friendly to other dogs, but he doesn’t seem to care about his dogs possi
  8. OMG so happy that this story has a good ending. Fingers & paws crossed for Mercer, too. Wayne is such a handsome guy! Are you keeping the name?
  9. I guess he is another "better on the couch" greyhound! Thank you so much for the interpretation, this thread is such a fascinating read.
  10. I've looked at the track info for our boy KB's Atlas, but I'd love a more in-depth reading. When he runs with other greyhounds for fun at the dog park, he seems to have good stamina, but doesn't corner too well and tends to wait until everyone else is running, then puts on the speed to catch up to the pack. Is this indicative of his racing style at all? Thanks so much!
