Petunia And Kate Had Visitors

Recommended Posts

Petunia and Kate had a visit yesterday from Snickers and Tiger, who was staying with Snickers this weekend. Tiger has ancestry on both sides very similar to Rocket, so there were lots of similarities between Tiger and my boy. It was great to have a new visitor for a few hours, and Tiger was adorable! Also, she's a rooer and rooed at me while I was making my coffee. I guess she hadn't had her morning cup yet either. :coffee

Petunia was KNOT great about maintaining her social distance, but Tiger took it in stride and gave her a warning. :lol

The morning consisted primarily of watching hounds sleep and telling Petunia to behave. 

Here's Tiger

Nice to see a brindle in your home again.  :)  

I thought Kate was one of the few dogs Petunia really got along with.  Is Tiger another, or was the social interaction from Petunia more on the assertive end of the spectrum?

 Bet she takes Bailey's Irish Cream in her coffee.

Sending cool thoughts to all you desert folks.

I wasn't sure how I was going to react to a brindle who looked a lot like Rocket but it was fine. It's been a long time since we've had a red brindle here.  

Petunia gets along fine with everyone,  but she is all broodie.  As soon as any hound comes in she tries to herd them, and follows them everywhere, basically riding herd on their every move.  it's strictly her being a broodie and wanting to be in charge - aka the fun police.   Once they are out in the yard she tries to get them all to run and play like she did with her puppies.  In Tiger's case, Petunia kept doing the typical greyhound butt sniff which Tiger did not like and she let Petunia know that she wasn't having any of it.  Everyone got along fine though and I had to just keep an eye on Petunia because she was getting in Tiger's space a little too much the whole time Tiger was here. Tiger stood her ground and gave a couple of warning growls when she had enough, and Petunia definitely had those coming. 

On the other hand, when Snickers is here they start playing bitey face with each other, and Kate and Petunia will both groom Snickers like she's one of their puppies.
