Did you choose the dog matching to your corridor? ;)

It sure looks that way, doesn't it?

I love that blue collar she's sporting. Cody has a glow-in-the-dark collar. Purplish blue. So I don't trip over him at night. lol

That's an extra martingale collar that I bought for Madison which she never got a chance to wear.  (The martingale collars are great for dogs like greyhounds and whippets because they can't slip out of them.)

He caused me to fall down the stairs... ALL the way down the stairs a few months ago, and I won't be having any more of THAT just now! :laugh:
:P

David, for your sake, I hope those stairs were carpeted.  Major ouch!

These are adorable pictures!  Thanks for sharing them! :)  She does look like a sweet dog. :)


Well, on a totally different topic...
I was coming here to this thread to share a really funny cat story.  Or at least funny to me!
 ;D

Vivien has discovered a new, goofy activity that she absolutely loves.  She has a large, wide cardboard box with low sides (kind of the perfect shape for a cat bed... it was an old shipping box at one time) that she likes to lounge in.  One day just to be silly I started gently pushing/ sliding the box along on the floor and occasionally slowly spinning it while she was lying in the box.  And, LOL... I discovered that she totally loves it.  Now, she'll sit in that box and let me scoot her all over the apartment that way.  It's like a cat amusement park ride.  At any point she'd be free to jump out (and she could do so easily), but she just sits there and goes along for the ride.  She'll even jump in and look at me on occasion as if thinking... come on, let's go!

 :laugh:



the world was asleep to our latent fuss - bowie

It sounds like Vivien is quite the thrill-seeker.

You've got to record this, if you haven't done so already.  I think it would make an awesome video.  Who knows, you just might have the next YouTube sensation here.  :)

I didn't see him laying at the top of the stairs at the time. So, I fell down and broke my crown but there was no Jill tumbling after! :laugh:

And my name is not JACK! :P

Awww! It looks so good on her, Fran! I'm glad Madison's collar was put to some good use!

Ember now weighs 19.4 pounds, up from 18.2 on January 20th.  The vet, who used to raise Afghan hounds, says that she's coming along nicely and that she has a nice temperament.  



Look at those pretty teeth!


Beautiful creature.  I love sighthounds.
