    Thank you Rog! :))

    He has a lovely soft duvet waiting for him to relax on, not too far from the radiator (not too close either!) with a cuddly teddy (no plastic eyes). Do you get the feeling this is gonna be one pampered pooch :D

    There is no such thing as a spoilt Greyhound :blink: its just an urban myth (w00t)

    I even take a blanket with me for Shadow to lay on when I go to the pub :teehee:

    Don't forget some nice chews and a brush (if your going to pamper him, you must do a proper job (w00t) )

    Greyhounds don't actually have owners but they do have human slaves. You are there to carry out their wishes and to pamper them to their hearts desire. My show greyhound William who is now at the bridge never ever lay on the floor he HAD to sit on his dad's knee nothing else was good enough for him.

    Morning all,

    Thank you for the lovely welcome! Thought I'd bring you up to date on Manny's first day with his new 'slaves' :teehee:

    He was as good as gold in the car. He is Sooooooo fussy :)) YAY! After a very sniffy visit around the garden, within the first 20 mins he had found his bed, lay down and took a deep sigh - bliss!

    Watching his reaction to seeing the tv for the first time ever was hilarious - he loves to give people little 'tickly' kisses - he tried to do it to the newsreader - then looked around the back of the tv for the person (we think)!

    His first day couldn't have gone any smoother - we put his 'housecoat' on at bedtime and as it's -9 here this morning (not inside though!) I'm glad we did. And he settled like a dream, wthout a peep all night.

    Fingers crossed it stays this way...........

    Here's a couple of photos you asked for! Plus an 'early days' one of him relaxing.

    We can tell he's more settled now (after nearly 3 weeks) as slippers are disappearing into his bed!
