Another happy homing story
We love hearing from you about how your re-homed hounds are getting on and what they’ve been getting up to in their retirement.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Three months with Millie
Millie came to live with us on bonfire night, last year. In hindsight, that might have been risky, but in fact she took the fireworks in her stride, not in the least bit bothered. She settled in really quickly as the other hounds showed her the ropes.
Within a week she had learned the arrangements for feeding, how to open doors, towards her and away, and was chattering her teeth when she had a cuddle. She still needs to learn where the treats stop and my fingers start, but you can’t have everything!
It turned out that she is a bit nervous with non-greyhounds and she likes to put me in between them and her on a walk. We took a trip to the seaside just before Christmas and she enjoyed walking on the beach and padding a little in the sea – it was a bit nippy for too much.
She has become best of friends with Meggie (in the photos with her) and loves to snuggle up in bed with her. Meggie is very sweet and moves over to make room for her new friend to squeeze in. All in all she is a real sweetheart and I am very glad she came to live with us!
