Well 3 days in with us and Mildred has turned into a slob..
After being so impressed with how politely Midred eats her meals, this morning she somehow managed to lift her bowl out of it's stand, carry it through to the lounge and put it down in front of the TV!! ;D She looked most put out that none of her breakfast had actually made it that far (in a trail through the lounge and kitchen of course).
Can't think where she got the idea of TV dinners from ...??!
Helen - I am so sorry but I think Moose may have a case of unrequited love, whilst Mildred has definitely been missing you and your family, she seems to have forgotten all about her four-legged brother.. Definitely time for you to get Moose a companion who will appreciate his friendship Hope he's starting to feel a bit less sad
;D ;D ;D Am going give you a ring later today. xxx
If its any consellation Helen got sent home today with a wet looking limpy toeless greyhound who is feigning old age and iminent death even though she is only 6. I think after a week of tlc she is going to put Ms Mildred to shame ;D

Madame Mildred is now 100% part of the furniture... quite literally sometimes, we cannot get her off the sofa and out for a walk for love nor money (food) - although with the weather we've had recently we can't say we blame her!!
Mildred has started going to dog school to help with her socialisation and recall training and after being the dunce of the class in week 1, she is now doing really well (for a greyhound anyway!) and greets other dogs more politely in the street as well as coming to call more often than not!
Mildred has unfortunately also got a visit to dog hospital lined up, due to a lump that has appeared on her chin which has grown very quickly and been bleeding and troubling her greatly. She is having an operation to remove it on Tuesday 19th March and biopsies to test for what has caused it. (We've tried to upload a photo of it, but it's telling us the forum is over it's attachment limit).
Ah its lovely to read a new update on Mildred and she sounds like she is doing brilliantly, especially with the socialisation
Really sorry though to hear about the lump on her chin Fingers crossed the surgery goes well and its nothing to worry about
Keep us posted x
Oh and about photos, we don't know why that message comes up because there is no actual issue with the forum capacity - but it is a message others have had too Please try again.....I'd love to see some new photos of your lovely girl

missfleur2003: Hello. I am new to this site and noticed that the posts for available dogs seem to be quite old. Some seem to be years old. Are the dogs shown still available.

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

steeveet: Hi there, just had our home inspection by a lovely lady with her Greyhound Arthur, who I could have happily snaffled as he was sweet and at home with our girl Belle. Does anyone here know how we now get to meet any of the dogs who need a home?

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.
