  1. Make them into doctors or nurses. Preferably nurses because they have had the brunt of everything in the last year. Scrubs, mask, and a superhero cape.
  2. Thank you! He was one of two who caught my eye the first time I went to their site. I'm hoping he's a good fit. We have a sometimes-reactive Dobie (when she feels another dog is going to hurt her), kids ages 3 and 6, two senior (9yo) cats, and chickens (securely fenced). So our house is asking a lot in a pup. But, yeah, I think he's stunning. He even has a white chest, white tail tip (looks bigger than some of the "few white" hairs a lot of greys have) and WHITE TOES (OMG, yay for being able to see quicks better!) Here's another photo of him:
  3. Hello! We are getting a foster with intent this weekend and I was wondering if anyone here had his ittermates. Our new pup's racing name is Pacific Storm (photo attached for tax). His litter mates are: Big Robie (Dark Brindle male) Code of Honor (Red Fawn male) Dark Guinness (Dark Brindle male) Deb Trickel (Red Fawn female) Mayluckbewithyou (Red Fawn male)
  4. I used to take an air horn and beep a few times to warn animals in the yard before letting my greys out. It seemed to help. Otherwise, it was survival of the fittest.
  5. Prey drive can't really be trained out. You aren't going to train out thousands of years of breeding. My Lulu (who was rescued from a coyote hunter when she was only a few months old and therefore never raced so never cultivated prey drive) caught and killed a rabbit with a muzzle with a stool guard--she literally caught it with her paws and beat it to death with her muzzle. She was fine with cats in the house (and even shared her bed with them) and actually loved them. Chase, my amazing Grade AA racer who was also great with cats in the house, caught a bird mid-air in the backyard and killed
  6. I've raised many puppies over my lifetime and I'll say this: a Greyhound puppy was the HARDEST (and shouting never helps anything). Sounds like your puppy may be trying to exert dominance. I use short sounds like "eh!" to get a dog to break focus of the negative things they are doing. Once they look at me (since it's an abrupt sound, it usually works), I praise them for focusing. All dogs and puppies in my house must sit (or at least back off and stay, in the case of Greys who can't sit) as I sit food dishes down. I use the "eh!" sound to stop them if they try to move before I give them the "o
  7. Mine is included in our Paw Plan. It's not insurance, but it covers all shots, one dental per year, wellness checks, CBC, spay/neuter, and at least a 20% discount on any other services. It's $65 a month, which is less than what one dental costs. ETA: I paid $1300 for Chase 10 years ago... he ended up needing seven extractions.
  8. I'm just itching to find out who our next pupper will be. It's looking like it'll be a brindle boy as the group mostly has them with one black boy. Since everything looks good on a black houndie, I'd love to see your BRINDLE photos with collars to see what I might like. My red fawn, Chase, was perfect in royal blue and my blue fawn, Lulu, was amazing in lilac. Red is currently what my Dobie girl wears.
  9. It's been about five years since I've had a Greyhound and I know dog food changes. We currently have a Doberman and she's on ProPlan Large Breed Sensitive Stomach. It's good to know I have a chance of this working with the incoming Greyhound.
  10. I have never heard of this! I hope it'll help my Doberman, too!
