I'm pretty sure she's not a breeder. She is or was the local greyhound rescue person and had a bunch of other sighthounds, too (sound familiar?).

I don't know all the out-of-state greyhound rescue people, either. It's getting hard enough to keep track of the ones here, now that you can't spit without hitting a GH group. I think there are something like 300 groups now.
If the kennel open early in the morning (I think they do) I'll be picking them up first thing because ... and Cinder and she was out front the whole time, tail flying and clearly glad to be running lead again.

Heh. How old is she? A reserved husky would be a first for me, but I don't take being ignored (too) personally.Mukluk is trying to get used to being a house dog. Since he wasn't cat safe and didn't get along with Zeke, he was always crated in the kennel room (which is part of the house, used to be an added-on screened porch, with a door off the living room) when not outside. After Zeke was gone, there was still the cat issue. I still don't trust him unsupervised with the cats, but they are all senior citizens and mostly hang out in 'their' room even when he's not around.

There have been other times when we tried to get him to stay in the house more, but he always preferred to return to his domain, maybe because it's cooler out there in the winter. But in the summer, the house stays cooler if the door to the kennel room is closed, and he will also stay cooler in the house which is an issue now that he doesn't have much undercoat. (Yes, Virginia, that double coat really does insulate against the heat.) So he's claimed the brand-new Kennel-Aire crate I bought for Gene that Gene hated and thankfully doesn't need.

Even after all these years, it only took him about 3 days to figure out the new routine, and he's starting to calm down and really enjoy hanging out with the people - he used to pace constantly whenever he was inside. The interesting thing is that he thinks he's the alpha male, and the other dogs think he is the alpha male only outside. He's telling them otherwise. He's also leaving short little tufts of undercoat around from his legs, tail and head, which are the only parts that weren't shaved.

Image is 11. Because of the Demodex we know there's something not right with her immune system after an awful lot of testing we still don't know what it is.

Well, there's certainly no shortage of more outgoing dogs around here if that's more appropriate.

That's pretty great. I've found older dogs mostly to be pretty flexible about their living situation, and it sounds like he's one of the accomodating ones.
Which dogs will you be bringing to Ithaca?

I'm still just not 100% sure he doesn't want to eat a cat as soon as no one's watching.

Just Music and Nick, a couple of boring greyhounds. Hopefully Music will be over his UTI by then.
