Phone goes at 8.30am this morning, can we take an emergency greyhound gap dog immediatley!
Mum & Dad were due to visit, Mum brought me a lovely bunch of flowers having sensed as Mother's do that I was a bit down, then Vikki, Ben, Marc and Harvey unexpectantly arrived and we had a good time tea and scones for the adults and milkshake and swingball for the boys.
Quickly followed by emergency girl arriving, she's called Twizzle because that's what she does. Twizzle had been with a foster family about 20 miles from us, a lovely family who we've met and they had helped us out last year with the photo shoot of hounds for the publicity for the coast to coast walk. Sadly one of their hounds had taken against Twizzle and attacked her several times with each attack becoming worse to the point where it was decided late last night that it wasn't safe for Twizzle to stay. Most weekends this time of year see's the hardcore of greyhound gap members out fundraising so with no chance of getting a transport run put in place to take her up to the kennels in Stoke it was decided to bring her here. It may be just for a few days depending on how it goes. My pack are slowly settling but bringing in a 3rd young dog in under six months is a big ask of hounds and humans.
Twizzle we guess is around 2 years old and a mixture of greyhound,whippet and maybe staffi, she's not lacking in confidence and doesn't seem to have any agression but is annoying the heck out of Alfie and Mojo because she just hasn't stopped bouncing around since she arrived. So bang goes our quiet Sunday LOL.
So finally Mr T says I'll take them out for a walk and see if that tires her out and voila Mr T with a 6 pack once more! and no it didn't tire her out, so no nap for me or hounds, hope she crashes out soon.
This photo of Mr T and his 6 pack was 27 June 2009 how times goes almost 3 years since we last were at 6 dogs. Only Alfie and Gangley both to the left of Mr T are still with us, Lucky, Jim, Sandy and Ranger all gone, all taken by the bone cancer! how I hate that diease.
Anyway here's hoping for some sleep tonight pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
