Being a pest. I had to put something heavy in a box. Guess which fuzzy nuisance dropped his ball into it before the heavy item went in?

@Orange Glasses, I like how the article extended it to all animals. When my first dog, Leela, passed away, sometimes the only thing that really kept me going was these little birds that would come to a shelf I built outside my window. They kept me company for about two years before I started working as a dog walker and started to really come back to life after that, and now I have my own Rocky.

Every time you post a picture of Rocky, I show him to my Greyhounds. They start whimpering and their tails wag. I think they want Rocky to come live with them. He’s super cute!

Well, your greyhounds are a dream of mine! I’ve always wanted to have a greyhound, preferably two. It seems like my dogs usually find me, somehow, so maybe one day a couple of greys will find me.

When I show Rocky anything on my phone he just tries to lick it. :laughing:

Greyhounds are fabulous family members and I would be lost without mine. I have been blessed to have had nine dogs in my lifetime, six of them Greyhounds. I have always found that having at least two at a time makes my life so much easier. If I have to go out for a while, they completely entertain each other with zero separation anxiety.

Counter to what many are told, Greyhounds are easily trained to be off leash. I only have to spend about a week with an e-collar working on commands and they are trained. Occasionally I will have to do a ‘refresher course’ on one, but that is rare. If I had to walk them on leash it would take much joy out of it for them as well as me. Thankfully they have plenty of trails on our property to run as fast as they want and have the time of their lives. In fact they just got back from their morning walk and are cooling off.

We’re on vacation this week, so it’s important for Rocky to get his downtime :laughing:

When I look at this picture, I see the gray beard on my little guy emerging. He’s a rescue, so I’m not sure how old he is, but he’s gonna be an old gray hound soon!

One of my service dogs, Naaru, is celebrating getting his Triple Crown! He's a hard worker...most of the time:) The Triple Crown is for having a trick title, a stunt title and a canine fitness title. And yes, that's his little brother's bum photobombing from the side. I also have a rat terrier as my second service dog.

Stealing my midnight snacks. The little thief took them from me just by being so dang cute. He heard the rapper open and he looked at me with his sweet little eyes and suddenly my snack was gone :imp:
