Dasher's Italian Greyhound blog 2019

This is the continued story of Italian Greyhound Dasher started in July 2009 - see old blogs. The latest "happenings" will be put on at the top at frequent intervals, so the story unfolds from the bottom and up! He lives with his nephew Solo.
I have videos of Lure Coursing and other doggy things on YouTube under my name: sighthounddotnet
Email me or go back at any time to my sighthound.net start page.
Happy reading! - Janet

"How much longer do I have to wait for my dinner?"

Thursday and Friday the 10th and 11th of January
I take my neighbour’s sweet dog for a lunch time walk a couple of days this week.
(They are tied up with some hospital appointments.)
She is an angel to walk. Keeps beside me and never pulls. She looks up at intervals as if to say: “Is this alright? You’re not my Mum!” So I bend down and pet her, which she loves and then she trips onwards with happy steps!
Below: Today, she stood in the weak sun and surveyed the area, enjoying the slight wind in her fur and sniffing the air, just relaxing standing there looking around in the distance.
So I waited twice for about 3-5 minutes! Much better than being stuck in the kitchen at home!
She walks beautifully beside me – until we turn to go back.
Then she is marching well ahead, already looking forward to getting back home again!!!
Unfortunately, Dasher and Solo do not like her as she does not look like a sighthound! They make a terrible barking scene to get her to move FAR away, preferably to leave this planet!! So they do not know what I do when I pop out and leave them for an hour after lunch.
But I let them carefully sniff my hands afterwards.

Tuesday the 1st of January
Wrestling in the new year after a tiring day yesterday, afraid of all the fireworks and loud bangs.
Good news! My little Robin is still here and survived the New Year's fireworks and terrific storm winds all yesterday - or is it a new bird just blown in???
