Guest greymaroon Posted March 1, 2012 Share Posted March 1, 2012 After 2.5 wks with a (live-in) pet sitter, I've come back to a super playful -- and super smelly -- greyhound! Our greyt is 2 years old, and we received her in mid-September. She's never been very playful, though she's always been pretty cuddly, and she does a happy jump-snap when it's time for her to lay down on her spot and wait for a meal to be served. Admittedly, she's been through a mini-trauma at the beginning of January, when her (human) daddy started his new job out of country. She listens (and recognizes!) his voice on Skype every evening, so, things proceeded as normal. After 18 days away, I returned to a very, very farty and very, very, VERY playful dog! She's eating well, and not getting up at night, she's just uber-energetic! I know that, while I was away, our pet-sitter introduced her to a few people, and she probably had more attention than usual. She was under strict instructions re: treats, though, and I don't think she ate anything out of the ordinary (aside from catching her first mouse!!!). Evidently, she was just farting all the time while I was gone, and that's actually subsided quite a bit since I returned. Aside from that, she's been quite a bit more frisky on the leash, but is "re-learning" her other good behaviors rather quickly (she knows she can't pull a whole lot over on mama). I'm glad my little girl seems to have gotten some puppy energy, but I'm just wondering about others' experiences. Could it be she's getting re-used to me again? And for goodness sake, why the farting?! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
