Bowdoin Greyhound Crew

Bille has been compiling photos of the Bowdoin Greyhound Crew as they gradually pose for him. This is such a sweet project showing all of the buddies together as they all live within 16 miles of one another. There are three more pups to add before the project is complete;-) Thanks, Bille!

Rex Specs: Small Steps

We're taking baby steps in getting Toby used to his new safety goggles. Being blind, he could easily poke an eye with a twig while exploring the yard, or on a walk, so it is important that he wears eye protection. He is tolerating the Rex Specs for short periods of time (especially when distracted with treats), but it may take a while for him to wear them on a walk for extended periods of time.

Happy Easter, Peeps!

Toby got all decked out for Easter! He hopes that all his friends are having a blast chasing bunnies.
Oops, I mean eating Easter eggs...
Our Lady Flame is as pretty as a butterfly fluttering around on Easter day.
Speaking of buddies... Here's Trouble! He is so handsome and sweet.
And, here are Veronica's pups, Dennis and Queen Bettina, in their fancy new harnesses, just in time to celebrate the eating of the eggs!
Photo taken by Veronica.
Finally, Bille and Skyy. It pays to have a buddy who is a professional pet photographer (Axell photography). Thanks, Bille! Your work is superb... And, many thanks to Veronica for bringing all the props! Sadly, Sugaree was too shy to be photographed, but she was with us during the photo session.

Happy Easter, Peeps!

Whatsa hound to do on a cold winter's day?


Toby is easy to please. At 1pm, the outdoor temp. has climbed to a whopping 16F with a windchill of 6F. Heat Wave!!!!! Toby has decided to lounge on the sofa in front of the wood stove and let it all hang out;-)
He is incredibly relaxed and his lolling tongue is evidence of his laid back attitude.
Close-up...Toby says, "Hi Drew! I'm not planning on moving from this sofa any time soon!"

Colder than heck

Geez... It is colder than heck outside. The windchill over the last couple of days has been in the -13F to -6F range. Of course the pups got me up at 1 am to go outside for a potty break, and I wasn't happy about that! You see, with Toby being practically blind, we have to accompany him on leash for every potty break at night. And, of course, with both pups being poop eaters, we have to scoop the poop as soon as it hits the ground;-) So, I had to get dressed into my long underwear and warm outer clothing, down vest, and heavy coat. Then, I had to dress the dogs in a couple of layers each before we could all go out and trudge around with the wind in our faces and the windchill being -13F. Both dogs did their business rather rapidly, and then Lady Flame got the zoomies and tore around with a big grin on her face before retiring for the rest of the night.
