Frito Settles In

It's been five days and Frito is settling in nicely.

She got along well over the weekend with Spike, my boarder.  Although she did seem to think the toys he came with were hers!

 She enjoys going for walks, rides in the car and being outside.  In other words, she's pretty normal.  She has not had one accident in the house since she's been here (knock on wood).  Though I must say, typically I find Greyhounds to be fairly easy to house train.  On the farms and race tracks, they are used to being crated and let outside to go so it kind of comes easy for them to make the transition to a home setting. 

She can be goofy too!

And quite the stinker!  Frito is barely two years old and still very much a youngster.  I've forgotten what it's like to have a toddler in the house!!  She likes to drag everything she can get her teeth around into the dining room by my computer.  I've also forgotten what it's like to have one that partakes of the cool and fresh water available in my bathroom.  

I am reminded every time I sit down to a wet seat!


  1. I'm so glad that Frito is settling in nicely. I'm sure that you won't have her for long, being young and pretty. No fun sitting on a wet chair though. Hugs. JB

  2. Glad to hear things are going well! Those 2 year olds remind us that not all greyhounds are created equal!

    So happy to hear that Frito is settling in! You need that after your trials with Lissa.
    Hugs :)

  4. See, Frito listened to me. I told her to be nice to you :). Great news!

  5. *snicker* I imagine the bathroom must be a shocker. We've never had that issue here, thank goodness! I actually love the "busyness" of the young hounds!

  6. You are doing good work for these wonderful dogs gal and I commend you. And ahhhh yes, I've had to put the toilet lid down with Ben even tho there is a water bowl in the bedroom as well as the kitchen....plenty enough at both ends of the house for a dog. But, hey.. I've seen Ben leave the house and walk outside and drink from a mud puddle ~ go figure.


I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
