Hi Readers, a nice story from our sister group in NSW. In more exciting news, GAP Victoria will be advertising greyhound adoption on free to air TV soon. Talk about greyt news for us hounds. Bye for now - Murphy.
Hi Readers, a lot of people think that greyhounds require a heap of room if you want to keep one a a pet. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are very quiet dogs (read lazy/bone idle - editor) that are happiest just lounging around with our families.
We do like a short walk once a or twice a day if we are in a unit or have no access to a back yard but 5 - 10 minutes is more than enough for us.
Sister Jess demonstrates the minimal needs of the hound as regards a place to sleep (To bad its Mum's chair but you can't have everything).
Anyway Readers, I see Dad has gone into the kitchen and I must now decide if I should a) pinch his chair b) follow him and hope for a treat c) both of the above. I think we all know what choice I will make. "Coming Dad", bye for now - Murphy.
Hi Readers, let me introduce you to Eddie who is fostering with us at the house of hound.
Eddie is 11 months old and is expected to reach 40-45 kgs when he is fully filled out (thats 88-99 pounds for the non metrically inclined). He needs a good feed up at the moment and we have discovered he loves warm pasta with sardines mixed through it. Given his love of Pasta Con Sarde we suspect he may be an Italian greyhound with a thyroid condition!
As you can see, his interests include gardening and water conservation.
Oversized Iggy or not, he is a lovely boy who loves to cuddle and will make some two legger a great dog one day.
I think that I hear my chef preparing dinner so its bye for now - Murphy.
