Well I have now had Honey for ten days. It's like she's always been here. No accidents indoors and she's fitted in to Polly and my routine very well. As our routine involves a fair bit of down time, they are both very happy.
More than once Honey has tried to get Polly to play, which she does but then gets worried and growls, so Honey backs off. They'll get it sorted.
A couple of times I have taken Honey out for a pit stop on her own and when we've come back in Polly has come up to greet her.
Polly still won't let Honey up on my bed, but Honey seems happy enough in the dog bed. She usually comes to me before I get up and puts her front half on the bed and has a cuddle with me.
Honey seems to have realised now I don't want her trying to eat my food and she has a look and then goes and lays down.
Walks are getting better, as Honey isn't swapping sides and getting the leads all tied up as much. She tends to walk beside Polly now.
Honey is a tail wagger. Well actually it goes round and round. More than once she's hit something too hard and made herself scream. She then sits down and then lays down cowering. Think she thinks I have hurt her. The cowering is just pitiful, but as soon as I pat her and talk to her she's fine. Even Polly goes to her to check she's ok.
Looking on the Greyhound Database I found out Honey's birthday is 8th February, when she'll be 4. Polly's birthday is 1st March and she'll be 8. Honey's racing name was Zoos Samba Beat.
Well I hope you have a good week. Don't forget to hug your hound/s.
