Today was our greyhound reunion. My pups knew something was up. This morning, they had their nails done, teeth brushed and bath wipes were used to make them smell nice. If I would have just done one thing then they would not have been suspicious, but when you do all three...it means "WE ARE GOING SOMEWHERE!" My pups get very excited when they get to leave their rural home. Jack gets almost out of control. He is bouncing around on 2 legs. He is constantly told "four on the floor, Jack". Scout gets excited, too, but she remains very calm. Her teeth chatter to show her excitement.
The pups enjoyed the reunion. Jack saw his foster mom. He lived with her for about three months before we adopted her. The lady who rescued Scout was even there. She is from Oklahoma. They had a lot of fun greeting other pups and getting love from other attendees.
I purchased a sweatshirt, magnet, Celebrating Greyhounds wall calendar and desk calendar. (My Scout is in the desk calendar this year.) The purchase that got me the most excited probably wouldn't matter to most people, but it made my day. It's a clasp that you place the dog's tags on and it can easily be moved from collar to collar. I don't know the official name for it. I have looked all over for one of these. My pups have several collars and moving their tags has always been a problem for me. The problem is now solved. It's a little thing, but it is so exciting to me.
