  1. Petunia here. I am 12 today and I am too excited to wait for the old man to post it. Sing along everyone....Happy Birfday to meeeeeeeeee,,,,,,,
  2. Long story, but the condensed version is that Petunia was getting back at Kate for scooping her Slumber Ball. Petunia looks pretty proud of herself.
  3. The cable company pulled out up front to check an equipment box on the street this evening. Mrs. Kravitz 1 and Mrs. Kravitz 2 both jumped from their beds to go see what was going on in the neighborhood. It was the most excitement we've had here all day.
  4. One year ago today Petunia came to visit us while her Foster Mom "went to a meeting" (yeah, right...) She was here less than an hour when I told DW to "just write the check." This little old lady girl pulled both of us out of the funk of losing Rocket months earlier. We weren't ready for another dog. Petunia thought otherwise. Happy one year Gotcha Day to our bossy, foot-stomping, whining, talking broodie.
  5. Kate likes rolling in the leaves - the few we have. Petunia thinks the shady part of the yard is much better.
  6. I came home from running errands on Wednesday morning and DW was also gone for about an hour that overlapped my errands. On Tuesday night we grabbed fast food at Whataburger for dinner and found the next morning that Kate apparently also loves Whataburger. Notice how Petunia sells her out by stepping backward when I ask who made the mess. Also, listen right at the end for Kate's chattering when I compliment her work. Some of you may have seen this already as DW also posted it on Facebook. The new locking trash can arrived the next day, as it wasn't Kate's first adventure with the trash. https://youtu.be/dZMBUSnLqOM
  7. The girls are hard at work today being retired greyhounds. Classes are available for those needing instruction. Foster Kate - Champion Roacher Petunia - Party Hostess Trolley - Manning the office today. Snickers - "Who says the guest bed is only Trolley's?"
  8. Trolley is visiting for a night or three. I grabbed fast food for dinner tonight and Petunia has become as fry-obsessed as Rocket was. Trolley turned them down at first because Petunia was trying to horn-in on every fry instead of sharing. Eventually, Trolley came over for some fries. Note the stinkeye from Petunia who is no longer at the front of the line.
  9. Although the Golden Girls had their party on the 4th of July for all of their birthdays, Petunia officially turned 11 today - going on 4. You would never know this girl is anywhere near 11 years old. She will have another Birthday Sundae later to celebrate, and most likely some fries with her dinner. Happy Birthday to my girl!
  10. Does this Slumber Ball make my butt look big? She slept for about the past 15 hours, got up to eat and went back to bed. I think she's starting to figure out this retirement thing. A couple nights ago I realized that she had stolen one of my shoes and left a hedgehog in it's place. Seems like a fair trade.
  11. We are having our traditional 4th of July greyhound party but putting a new spin on it this year. In the past, Rocket hosted this party for his friends and those friends who couldn't handle the noise of fireworks. With Rocket's passing in October and the arrival of Petunia this year, we are instead having a birthday party for the Golden Girls, all of whom have birthdays in July. Our friends who usually come here to avoid fireworks can't be here today, but we are thinking about them and missing them, wishing they were able to be here too. (Conner and Val we miss you) So, the first picture is a teaser with more to come later. From left to right - Trolley who turned 12, Petunia who will be 11, and our friend Bella who will also be 11. To quote Petunia - "I ain't wearing no stinking tiara......oh hell no...." More to come later tonight.
  12. Petunia had a play date today with Bella, the hound we were taking care of when her owner broke a hip. The girls were excited to see each other although there wasn't enough "play" to take any pictures. We mostly watched them sleep on beds while we talked with Bella's owner. Bella's owner had the book with all of her records and we found that her racing name was Phoenix Chomper. Her daddy was none other than Dave The Dog! I'm thinking that Dave The Dog's owner either is or used to be here on GT but don't remember if it was his racing owner or retirement owner. I think it's cool that Bella is one of Dave The Dog's offspring. I seem to remember that Dave The Dog was pretty entertaining and was pretty popular here when his owner posted things about him . Just curious if his owner is still here on GT. (edited to fix typo) Bella looks a lot like her daddy.
  13. Petunia and Bella waited until the hottest part of the day to go sunbathing.
  14. ... Daddyman. Note the eye that is watching Daddyman from behind the blanket.
  15. This afternoon with the front door open enjoying the breeze. Tonight since dinner - 3.5 hours ago. Edited to add the bed fail in front of me at the moment. Occasionally there's a little growl of contentment.
  16. Note the really quick stinkeye when I tell her she can't tear the toy at about the 50 second mark.
  17. We are running into a repeated issue with Petunia deciding to statue for long periods of time on our walks. She was a fantastic walker on our first few walks, and only statued on those for a couple of minutes. I assumed that she was statuing to be able to stand in the sun since that's where it typically occurred, and she would eventually get moving. The problem is getting worse instead of better. I've had to call DW to bring the car on several occasions because she was still in same spot after 15-20 minutes and absolutely refuses to continue. Once we got home, she refused to get out of the car twice. (Do the words "stubborn old broodie" come to mind? ) We had to leave her in the car with the windows down for about 30 minutes before I finally picked up the seat sling and lifted it until she had no choice but to stand up and then get out. Today we tried our walk with a new 2 Hounds No Pull Harness which gave me much better control of her, but we still ended up calling for the car when she flat out refused to continue. There were workmen at the house where she stopped and she was determined to go see them instead of walking. She was not happy that I could move her along much better using the harness, but it also just made her dig in even harder. I've never had this much trouble walking any dog, and like I said, she is a great walker when she wants to be. She is excited when walk time comes around, but the freezing and statuing starts almost out the door and happens throughout the walk. I was looking at this thread from Victoria Stillwell and will try the approach to push her from behind to get her to walk instead of pulling her or circling, and treat her when she actually complies. I'm wondering if others agree that this is the way to break the problem. I can find no physical reason for the statuing like a corn or pain etc, and it often occurs in the same spots when she knows we are getting close to the end of our route, but also occurs at random spots. Thoughts? Tricks to outsmart a really smart broodie?
  18. Petunia is excited for the big game! (It's a gray, rainy day in Phoenix) Trolley is adjusting her antennas to make sure we have a clear picture.
