Nice to hear from you again Austin,well done for helping Paul with the digging, I'm sure he really appreciated it I'm sure you have got enough of your own toys rather than playing with girls dolls, I didn't think you had a feminine side Hope your tummy settles down soon, although if you carry on eating stuff you shouldn't you'll suffer for it, you should have learnt that after seeing Andy on boxing day after his cupboard raid Be a good boy,
::)well julie and i had a few words this morning on our walk. Everything was going really well until i spotted this half eaten Mars bar, which i promptly tried to chew. Next thing i know julies got her hands down my throat and its back on the floor, i was most put out i didn't talk to her for a good five mins. Julie kept muttering about not learning my lesson I HAVE! swallow first DON'T CHEW ;D my tummys a little better today, think i might give birds heads a miss from now on though ;D Played fetch this afternoon and i think we've got it CRACKED! Wev'e found this old piece of down pipe i can't hold on to (so tug of wars out) julie throws it and shouts fetch, i bring it back and throw it at her when she says leave(it seems to make her happy! BLESS) The boys and i have really hit it off, I've got them so well trained. Take this afternoon after school they left the downstairs loo door open (dog food store) and i popped in for a small snack ;D( i wonder if i can get them to sneak me a mars bar next?) Oh yes, Julie winning in the sofa wars, i now don't sit on any. ive got a very comfy floor cushion. But keep watching this space the odds WILL change ;D love Austin

Austin I told you ooman chocolate is bad for you Do as you are told!!!! Glad you've got the boys trained well, how is Jess coping with you? I'm a bit disappointed with you giving up on the sofas, all that training you had here has gone to waste Bye for now
::)well Ive had a busy few days Julie and Paul went away for the night over the weekend and auntie Karen and i did some kid sitting, although I'm much better at it than the auntie. ;D in fact I'm so good i even won a victory in the sofa wars i kept everybody up on Saturday night until about 1.00am with my story's (and barking) everyone was very tired so they gave up and draw straws to see who would have the pleasure of my company for the night. Luke won and had to sleep with me on the sofa bed (two birds with one stone and all that) so we had a very enjoyable night ;D ;D I'm also learning on the tummy front i found a packet of Tums today and ate them before i ate the co tact lens, toilet paper and the tissue paper GUESS WHAT THEY WORK! must find were Paul keeps the others ;D love Austin

Oops Julie, forgot to warn you about Austin and his liking for tissue. Didn't know he liked contact lenses either as we don't have any here Sounds like he's keeping you on your toes, can't help but love him tho' ;D Sue
::)well I'm not in anyones good books at the moment :(Ive knocked Julie over in my joy at seeing her again (she was gone for a whole ten Min's) shes got a lovely bruise on her leg and walks with the funniest list Ive ever see. Jessie's got a huge bump on her head too after i pinned her to the wall for some love n kisses after school yesterday and Ive pinched Luke's omelet and Ben's sandwich's (that wasn't my fault, i thought they were being kind and letting me join them for lunch) ;D and then to finish Julie off completely i bit her after she tried to stop me from eating a bowl full of smelly crunchy stuff ;D (i wish i hadn't my tummy's not been right since But i think they might be talking about forgiving me as i over heard Julie speaking to a lady about visiting and giving them some training lessons ;D heres hope'n ;D love from a VERY sorry boy Austin
Austin, you're humour never fails to make me giggle ..... but beware you don't go to far with your antics, you might be in TRUBBLE If Paul and Julie are talking about training lessons, your life might not be quite so much of a laugh So ...... I suggest you behave impeccably for a while and they might forget about the training person ;D ;D ;D
Austin, this is your final warning. You either start behaving yourself and stop knocking people over or Tara is packing her case and moving in with you. Now you know that Grandma Tara doesn't take any nonsense from silly youngsters, so get your act together or she will be on the next train into Leicester.
::)just a quick note to let you know ive been a very good boy the last few days.lisa and anna rang julie and gave her some good advice(for her NOT ME) :(and im not allowed coloured biscuits anymore it seems that the colours make me a very naughty boy ;D ive also got to stop eating chocolate bars so ive got a muzzle that lady is still coming tonight to give the family some training so hopefully things will get better and i can un pack my hankie and rip up the map of the M1 as i'll beable to stop and not have to go back to sue's and listen to all the telling off from Andy,willow,tara and joe (the dogs that live there) i'm going to try my best to be GOOD love Austin
::)well the lady (Marie) came, thought i was a very handsome dog ;D and agreed with Anna and Lisa that it was probably the coloured dog biscuits and my love of a mars bar off the side of the road (SO ALL HAVE BEEN BANNED) Marie said Ive got to go to basic training which doesn't sound good ( hope i don't have to wear combats) ;D Ive took up gardening again (to get back in Julies good books, its NOT working) she rang uncle rob and asked if i can start work for him on Monday digging footings??( hes a builder) something was said about payment in organic dog biscuits On a good point; went for a nice long walk with Paul and Julie by the canal W O W Paul and i went for a nice paddle (Paul wasn't as keen as me) perhaps it was to cold for him or he'd forgotten his swimming trunks ;D i promise i will try to be good this week as i think Lisa rehab sounds a little SCARY love Austin

peggy: Also a brand new greyhound owner, I love her already. It's hard to believe she is 4 years old, I have to keep reminding myself she was in a kennel and not a home. She is a beaut, but goes skits around food, I suppose it was the excieting time of day x

kiri07: I have been concerned with my 7 year old greyhound losing hair on her thighs, but it looks like it is a normal thing. She's losing a little in a few other places too. I saw someone say something about vetzyme condition tablets? I also heard organic oat

greylover68: Can I shout out advice re fireworks! Rock Rose which is a Bach’s Flower Remedy works fantastically! My great big big is petrified but a few drops of Rock Rose and he’s calm within minutes. It is for fear so would help with other things too.
