The hunt for the dog continues - thinking about a whippet or greyhound now. These are two of my favourite breeds - I love the paradox with them that they are capable of incredible speeds but are generally very lazy and laid back. And the way they look at you just melts you heart...
(Look at those eyes! Note that this pic is off the web and not one of my dogs.)
Many years ago I had a whippet and a greyhound - both rescued and both called Lady! They became Big Lady and Little Lady. Big Lady ran across a main road one day and was killed. Broke my heart. Little Lady moved to Scotland with my mom and lived until she was 17 years old. She hated people bending down to talk to her and had a habit of biting noses when they did! She even did this to my grandfather, breaking the skin on either side of his not inconsiderable nose!
Right, things are nice and quiet - time to break ground on my assignment! I have done enough reading to make a start!
