Rocks is very comfortable. He’s really happy at home but is not confident when out and about.
Lettie spent most of yesterday evening relaxing like this. She really will spend entire evenings lying upsidedown with her legs in the air.
She’s now very relaxed when she’s at home with us, but sometimes has issues when out visiting, often needing to be put in her safe place (usually the car works well).
…and she is very fixated on it.
Once more in her favourite position
In the whole time Lettie has been here, she’s never used a dog bed, she’s very much at home on the sofa and is very relaxed with Raro
Lettie (Jinja Heart) is our latest foster, she’s been returned to GAP after about 6 months living with a family with children.
She’s smart, inquisitive, confident and fitted right into to home life with Raro immediately. She can be a bit vocal at times – unusual for a greyhound – but she seems to be calming down as there isn’t any one else barking around here.
She’s very interactive though still needs to make the transition to being more focused on what her humans want instead of being in her own world. I would imagine that after a few months in the right home her behaviour will have changed.
Walks well on the lead, great with other dogs and meeting people. Very well mannered and very trainable.
Unfortunately she seems to be very familiar with how couches work; she is happy to jump up and share a sofa with Raro if she feels like it. He’s very accommodating, but has no choice in the matter anyway.
On Sunday, Vulcan went to the GAP run in Upper Hutt. He was perfectly behaved (all the dogs were) and had a great time, though because it was quite sunny and hot there wasn’t much running involved. Sure can hold his tail high, though!
