About me: I love reading doggie FB posts and watching YouTube videos. When I found out I was joining the SA GREYS family, I went straight to my laptop to check you out.
I LOVED DeeDee’s posts. She looks a lot like me, so she’s super cute. I also loved her “Bobbing for Hotdogs” video. At first I was surprised she won the hot dog contest…she’s such a little dog. Then I realized the contest wasn’t the number of hotdogs eaten, but the ability to get the hot dogs out of the water.
I practiced like crazy so I’d be prepared when I arrived in Arizona. It’s possible I have a tiny competitive streak. I ran 97 races before raising awesome puppies.
Fast forward to last weekend…we weren’t allowed to bring snacks or drinks on the hauler, so I was REALLY hungry when I arrived at Lazy Grey. I immediately spied the big buckets of water on the patio. HOTDOGS AHOY!!
When it was my turn, I practically ran up to that spa day station. Then the people took one of the buckets and dumped the water all over me! Now I’m no hotdog bobbing expert, but I don’t think that’s how you do it.
There were a couple buckets of water left, so I figured the hotdogs were in one of them. I looked and looked for those delicious morsels. Nada. Just water.
I’ve decided either DeeDee was pranking us in her video or Liesel ate all the hotdogs. Not to be unkind, but it looks like she hasn’t missed many meals.
Either way, I wasn’t able to prove my bobbing prowess or fill my grumbling belly. Fortunately, the last spa day station was having dinner in my new apartment at Lazy Grey.
I’ve messaged DeeDee to challenge her to a bobbing contest…we’ll see if she responds.
Future Bobbing Champ,
More Info and Foster Update: Pickles is a beautiful and very friendly girl. She has proven to be small dog tolerant, and possibly cat tolerant, if introduced slowly. She has successfully been around children as young as 4 years old. She currently lives in a quiet home with another female greyhound. She mostly loves her people, but is great with other dogs and sometimes plays with her toys. She loves walking, but also loves her sleep time. She loves to be brushed and has occasional zoomies.
She does not have accidents in the house and occasionally uses a dog door to come inside, but hasn't quite understood the concept yet. She is fine to stay home alone for up to 5 hours. She roams free in the house and is not crated or barricaded. She also does great in car rides! She eats well, she is being fed Acana Dry and Purina Beyond Ground Wet. She sometimes has loose stools, mostly likely from her panacur for her hookworms. She will be re-tested later in May.
She listens well and knows her name and basic commands. She is all around a social fun loving dog. She would do great hanging out at a Starbucks or walking around the neighborhood. She would like to have small or large dog sisters/brothers and possibly cat brother/sisters, but would probably be ok on her own too, as long as she gets lots of attention from her owners.
Pickles is an easy-keeper, no issues, no drama, sweet personality.
