Happy New Year to all our friends in blog land. I haven’t had much time lately to follow all your lovely posts so I do apologise. I have been very involved with our rescue group – Amazing Greys – helping with the administration – answering emails, sending adoption and foster applications out, organising house checks, updating the website etc. So I’m afraid my blog has been a little neglected of late.
But we have some good news to start the new year – we have foster failed again and will be keeping Chelsea! Despite our best efforts, and my husband’s determination to prove that we can foster dogs without keeping them, she’ll be staying with us!
You may remember from the last post in September a few weeks after she’d arrived that she was a little CRAZY when out walking on seeing cats or other dogs, and jumps around like a lunatic when it’s walk time? Well, she’s still a bit like that, but she has settled down a lot at home and gets on really well with Billie and Rupie – they have all become pretty good friends.
She’s quite the goofy girl and is extremely affectionate and even quite smart. She’s learnt to sit when there’s food around (not an instinctive thing for a greyhound to do) and is no longer pushy when we sit down for our dinner. She happily sleeps in her bean bag, or beside our bed all night and only jumps up in the morning for a cuddle.
It’s definitely more work to have 3 dogs than 2 (lots more poo to pick up!!), but she’s brought a lot of laughs into the house and she seems so happy here that it would be a shame to uproot her and get her settled with someone else. (That’s our excuse anyway!)
So we’ve failed again – but it’s a good fail!! Welcome Home Chelsea xx
