Blue & Cherry go to school

Sometimes it is just easier when you have extra paws in the classroom. Teaching genetics is always an interesting topic but even more so when it can be applied to a real situation. This was to illustrate selective breeding and pedigree charts. Cherry is rather proud of her racing stats and litter information, the students enjoyed trying to find out why if she is black and white why most of her puppies are black but there is one blue one. Blue didn't really care, he just did his thing (sleeping and accepting cuddles) while he was there.

The Adventures of Wizard & Lucy - The Various Means of Communication

There's nothing quite like a high five in the face from a roaching greyhound's hind leg to inform you in no uncertain terms that more room is required on the couch, please and thank you, would you mind just "bunching up€ a touch more? Then there's my personal favourite, the rolled up tongue in your ear at 6 in the morning, just to let you know that it might just about be time to get out of bed and do something constructive€¦I know, how about feeding and walking us!

Update on Jake

I'd always been a cat person, grew up with them, presently have two and was never a dog person. But I always liked Greyhounds, never dreamed you could actually own one. They are special, so special that even Bart Simpson got one way back in Episode ONE, Santa's little Helper. They are sleek and fast, very much like a Cheetah yet don't try and eat you when you attempt to put a leash on them and get them back in the car

Strange Bedfellows!

A couple of weeks ago this young seagull was discovered in the local park with a horribly broken leg. It had been in torrential rain and was very weak and cold. As I have had some experience with bird care over the years, it came my way.

At a vet visit, it was decided that an amputation was the only way of perhaps saving the gull as its chances were nil as things were, but gulls happily live with one leg, as we have all witnessed at the beach, it was worth trying.
