All things to do with totally addictive greyhounds.

In which Cesar Milan 2 tries to encourage me to let my greyhound off the lead… kind of!

“Are you going to let her off then?” said Cesar 2. We – Cesar Milan 2, his two dogs, my dog – The Daisy Dog and I were idling our Saturday morning away in the field. A field that Cesar 2( my nickname for this…

In which I meet Cesar Milan… kind of!

I’m working on a commission, writing about cats. So I’m taking a break from cats and writing about greyhounds on here. In particular, one little lady and her mates. ********************************************************************************************************* So, it’s a Saturday morning and the Daisy Dog and I are on one of…

A fistful of sausages: training the Daisy dog.

  For a few sausages more I’m hoping my greyhound will be good, not bad and certainly not get us into an ugly situation. I’m out with the Daisy dog on a bright, late January afternoon. The birds are singing hopeful songs and a gentle,…

A teenage greyhound’s first blog post. Love from the Daisy Dog.

I want to like, wash my bottom on the sofa in the lounge and then I may have another little snooze. Before you’re sick ,mummy has a big fluffy throw on there and a waterproof cover:  and so my bottom will not make the…

Done racing: the early stages of re-homing a retired greyhound.

  Those of you who read this blog regularly may know that about two months ago we ( hubby and I) adopted our second retired greyhound, Daisy. She’s a blue brindle and will be four years old in May. In the two months we’ve…

Meet Daisy.

It’s all things greyhound again, at the moment for us. We’ve just adopted a three-year old brindle ( just a little puppy really!) called Daisy: and so it is back to the dog walks, training and having a home that feels complete again. I do think a…

R.I.P.Misty : the blogging greyhound.

This morning hubby and I had to make the heart-breaking decision to have Misty, our beloved greyhound, put to sleep. An X-ray had revealed a tumour on her hip and even if the damn and blasted thing hadn’t been cancerous, she would have needed her…
