The kids got a new bed from their Aunt Susan. A super cushy bed, but neither of her English Cockers felt comfortable as they sank in the middle of it. So I brought it home to test on my kids. I think it passed with flying colors.
As always, Stella is the first to claim a new bed.Stanley takes his turn.Jaime enjoys the bed and another treat from the visit. The bed is now in the bedroom, and Tristan and Jaime rush upstairs every night to claim it first.I picked up foot-long bully sticks at the Costco by Susan, as our local Costco only has chicken jerky. The kids thought it was Christmas.A couple of weeks ago, we heard from one of our volunteers that a greyhound was at a local shelter. After getting the tattoo numbers, we asked all the local groups if they knew anything about this dog.
We picked him up from the shelter, and he stayed with us for a couple of days. Kris called him Kip. He was quite dirty, so Kris gave him a bath. The brindle stripes help cover up the fact that he is skinny with a rough coat.Standing next to Sunny, who is a big girl, you can see the difference.He is a happy-go-lucky kinda guy. Got along with everyone, and fit right in. He’s a rooer too. I wasn’t able to get a shot of his smiling.He does his best meerkat impression. What a sweet face.Even though he was eating upwards of 8-10 cups of food plus treats a day, he’ll need a bit of time to fatten up.GPA-NoVA was kind enough to open up one of their foster homes to Kip. He still has his doodads, so he will be making a trip to the vet to get snipped along with an overall checkup. Usually greyhound groups are pretty independent, but it’s nice when they can come together to help out. In the end, it’s all about the dogs.
