Derek went to another foster home, but Marcie is staying with us till Thursday. She is an absolute sweetie and is totally cat safe. She broke her back hock at the track and they never repaired it so she does have a limp, but other than that she is in great shape. Anyone looking to adopt should check out Greyhound Outreach.
We are also dog sitting two 14 year old greyhounds, JR and Alexis. Their owners made reservations at Casa Lichtinger over 6 months ago. They are easy and settle in nicely. Lexy doesn't have a lot of teeth so her tongue often hangs out the side of her mouth and JR has the backend old man wobble and needs help getting up sometimes. So this makes 7 greyhounds in the house and two cats. On Tuesday, we get one of Trac's hounds, Cozmo. That will be 8 hounds and two cats. Hopefully my neighbors who are selling their house won't be having an open house this week. HA! Can't you picture it! You are looking out to check out the back yard, glance over and see 8 greyhounds come rushing out of the house next door! Hmmmmm....I should warn them. Anyhoo, Coz is great and he loves coming over. It will be one big greyhound party! I most definitely will take pictures this week.
I thought I post a photo collage of a daily occurance that happens around here. Maggie kicking me off the couch. She MUST have the end of the couch. Not the middle. It also must be the spot I am sitting in. She always starts with the stare down. Seriously, she will stand and just stare straight at you without blinking and do a small tail wag. There is no ignorning her or telling her to go away. She will always come back and just stare...stare...stare. You can practically hear her saying..."Are you going to move? You are going to move? That is my spot? Are you going to move?"
So it begins...
You are in my spot.Okay, now I am serious. Get off.
You can't ignore me!
Finally I can't take it anymore and move. She wins again. It is that I can't resist that face! Sigh.
