The Adventures of Wizard & Lucy - they're back!

Since I last wrote my parents have moved in to a caravan in our backyard while they wait for their villa at a local retirement village to be completed. They've been with us for a month and Wiz and Lucy have clearly been enjoying daytime company. In fact, I believe that their loyalties may slowly be shifting as I came home from work one night last week to find Lucy curled up on the couch with her head on my mother's lap.

Pippi (Core Power) - Young at Heart

Not everyone is keen to take on a slightly older hound so I thought I'd tell you a little bit about Pippi and hopefully dispel a few myths along the way.  Pippi is 7 years old and, like many black dogs her age, is going grey round her muzzle and even has cute little white eyebrows. She might looks her age but when it comes to her attitude to life and energy levels she definitely didn't get the memo about being 'mature'.

Greyhound inspired Art Exhibition is a hit

DEEP CHEST; DEEP HEART    by Sandy de Kock

Presented at Space Gallery, Wanganui, 16th January 2016.

An exhibition of oil paintings and digital works celebrating my passion and love for the Greyhound.

"Perhaps one central reason for loving dogs is that they take us away from this obsession with ourselves. When our thoughts start to go in circles, and we seem unable to break away, wondering what horrible event the future holds for us, the dog opens a window into the delight of the moment.€

Angels Come in Black - The Art Critic

Warning:   This article comes with a Government Health Warning and is not intended for the squeamish reader.

After a series of bizarre incidents I have come to the conclusion that a statement is being made about my garden seating arrangements, my plant selection and my garden art.  Lilo is bright, but would you say that expressing an opinion on such matters is beyond a dog ?  I think not.

Update on Sunny (Ibiza Fling)

Sunny (Ibiza Fling)  is settling in very nicely.  He and Penny (our Rottie) get on so well, they have not had one disagreement.  Sunny is now a Canine Friends dog (pet therapy) and has had 2 visits to the Rest Home.  He was very well behaved and the residents thought he was great.  He is sitting nicely and also does a "wait€ before he eats his food. He mastered the dog door within 4 days and was house trained within 2 days.

Angels Come in Black - Blog 2

a'ngel (-nj-) n.1. Lovely or innocent being;

You might be wondering where all this 'angel' stuff is coming from. Well, that is how Lilo's last trainer described her for the GAP adoption process.

"Lilo is an angel, she has no bad habits€¦€¦€¦a beautiful quiet girl€¦€¦€¦the perfect dog€.

And later she wrote to me€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦"beautiful looking - a credit to her first trainer,€¦€¦€¦..raced like a champ€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦if human, she would be described as the perfect child€.
