Signature Dog Blog: A Quiet Plea for The Greyhounds

Is it tongue out Tuesday already?


A dear friend asked me to put this plea for Greyhounds on my blog. 

Here you go kid!

Just because a Greyhound's racing carer is over does not mean they are finished. 

They actually need your help. They need homes.  These sweet and calm beauties make wonderful pets.  

Even for the first time dog owner, they are great starter dogs.  No pun intended.

Signature Dog Blog: Puppy Puppy Puppy




This past week I had the privilege of taking care of a beautiful three-month old Scottish Terrier. She was adorable, fun, friendly, loved to chase around and play. This afternoon I will return her to her home and I know we will all miss her. I captured her playing by herself in my back yard - no staging just her in her puppy world. 

Puppies are a great deal of work (more than most people will admit) and I recommend anyone who is considering getting a puppy or who has a puppy to go to Dr. Ian Dunbar's website http://www.siriuspup.com/ where you can read and download free VERY HELPFUL pdf's that are excellent and easy to understand. When I was raising my own puppy - I followed Dr. Dunbar's house training schedule and Madeline had a very successful potty training.
