This past fortnight has been one of lots of learning, specifically learning about greyhounds, who are, without a shadow of a doubt, quite unique and very very comical.
Luna doesn't like to walk, she really doesn't. I have been on forum after forum reading about this and all I can do is throw my hands in the air and say, when she is ready she will but in the meantime she keeps freezing. I have better luck than Lily as I just take my phone with me and give myself plenty P L E N T Y of time. When she freezes I read and then she gets bored so off we go, sometimes only 2 steps.
This was this morning. I think the entire neighbourood heard our laughter.
|Lily hid her face as if you wouldn't know it was her.|
|I can't even look without laughing. Don't you just love how Luna is all relaxed? Rosie is in her jammies as it was very early when we left but then the sun came up. oh my.|
This conversation was overheard by yours truly.
Child L: I'm going to check her for ticks.
Me: she is up to date on all her meds;
Child L: OMG I've found a tick, I've found a tick.
Child R: urghh That's not a tick that's her nipple!!!
Child L: oh, no wonder she was so resistant to me pulling it off.
Me: OMG you tried to pull her nipple off?
Child R: Yeap.
She wasn't injured, just her dignity. I gave child L an anatomy lesson and saved her from phantom tick scares.
Luna had her first vet visit this week and she is up to date on everything, they took out her dissolving stitches cos they hadn't dissolved and gave her a clean bill of health. She is much to skinny as she is still at her racing weight so at 4 yrs old she is on puppy chow as it is very high in calories.
She also had her her first bath and I can't say she was overly impressed.
Please excuse the old gate in the background I need to get to the tip
|Why are you doing this to me?|
|I repeat, why are you doing this?|
Oh my look at that fancy new gate that I BUILT...yes I did!
|those eyes melt hearts|
|She appears to be getting smaller by the second, maybe she shrank!|
|Lily is so good with her, Rosie too but Lily is bossy so Ro got to hold the lead|
|furry little toes|
|Lily calls her Pirate due to her snaggle toof|
|Nice and clean after her bath and looking playful|
|Those ears! I call them her play ears.|
Tonight the girls are at their dads and someone isn't going to bed, she is keeping a vigil, I fear this is going to be a VERY long night.
