One year on from getting our first greyhound - Gabby, we chipped & added Patrick to the pack.

 

Loughbeag Mower (AKA - Patrick), born in Ireland 2007 & had quite a good but short career. 34 races, 9 wins & 4 seconds.

Moved over to Hove in the UK for a year to race until he was retired.

 

He spent 10 months in a retired Greyhound Trust kennel where we met him, and after walking him a few times, decided to take the plunge and take him into the fold.

 

Patrick has been with us for a month now - had his first holiday & is slowly finding out the joys of being a pet.

 

Below are a few pics of my handsome boy!

 

I think he has settled in with my girl Gabby quite well!

Welcome, your pups are beautiful ! They really seem to be bonded already. :welcome2

 

Not sure they have bonded yet as Gabby had a growl at Patrick as he got on the bed. I think is more a case of both of them being stubborn!

 

Thanks for the welcome everybody (been on here before with Gabbys introduction a while back).

As i know you all like seeing photos i will post more at a later date. :D

Patrick is a cutie. And he seems to have figured out that his packmate can double as a pillow!

 

My boy Jack is also an Irish hound (we're up in the northern wilderness of Glasgow :P)

Hi, just an update on Patrick.

 

Two months on & he is getting on famously with our girl Gabby, a couple of minor space issues in the car, but otherwise well behaved,

Took him to our local enclosure a month back for an off leash run & found he still has quite a high prey drive - well, the owner who brought in their small white fluffy without thinking soon got the message, (once we saw this he was muzzled so he could continue his run).

Last weekend our local training club had an open dog show to raise money for cancer research, must of been over 100 dogs in attendance - we entered the following....

 

Gabby - Beautiful bitch over 3 years - placed 4th.

Gabby - Best re-homed bitch - placed 4th.

 

Patrick, as boys will felt he had to go better..

 

Patrick - Handsome dog over 3 years - placed 2nd.

Patrick - Best re-homed dog - placed 1st!

 

Well talk about surprised - thought Gabby would do well, but never thought my boy would show so well after 2 months.

 

As any proud parent would - i will add pictures once i've sorted out the camera.

 

Thanks for following!
