I hate greyhound bone cancer more than bees.

I still hate bees and bugs but I hate bone cancer even more. Il mio cuore del levriero e triste e rotto. My greyhound heart is sad and broken because my sister Luna Petunia was diagnosed with the dreaded greyhound ailment - osteosarcoma. We thought maybe her old racing injury was acting up since she had been playing all week with a bunch of other greys, the only good news on that is that she didn't end up with a spontaneous fracture. My new goal is to be a real nice brother and not bite her on the head. Just 2 months ago I gave her a real shiner and stitches but she is all healed up and pretty again. I am staying out of the doghouse and sleeping in the sun with Luna and Susie.

Ouch !

Ow, ow, ow !! Ask me where Polaris is, and I can point to it.
The infamous greyhound happy tail. This is what happens when us greyhounds get happy :-) Our little bony tails slap anything within distance and - whacko - broken tails. At least I didn't break the skin, I'm just patched up with tape for the next few weeks.
The weather is nice and cool in the mornings, Luna, Susie and I are hanging out in the field today with the cats. The butterfly weed is true to its name - full of bees and butterflies and several Swallowtail chrysalises.

Heat Index 102.5

Questo cane e troppo caldo per parole. This dog is too hot for words. Woof.

Blog neglect, it oughta be a crime I tell Ya. My wading pool is in the garden and of course it's been pouring cats and dogs - so really - what's the point ?? My bi-ped might take me to Canine Ranch to their big pool to see if I REALLY like to swim, or if I'm just a beach bum playboy. Luna only dangles her tootsies ankle deep, while I prefer shoulder deep with a periscope head. Susie hates to get her feet wet at all ! Lots of blooming wildflowers and teensy frogs, I have to be careful or it's squish-squash between the toes. Ciao-ciao.

Il cane perfetto gentiluomo

Ciao, hello. Have you ever seen such a cool sit, don't I look like, il cane perfetto gentiluomo, the perfect gentleman hound ?? My tush was a bit chilly but I am Cool Coty, after all. Miss Jen would be so proud ! This is my snow picture but yesterday was a perfect March day. We went for a stroll in downtown Woodstock (GA) for the St. Patty's Day parade and good Irish cheer. Susie, Luna and I met Susan LaB and Dewey, Kane and Mr. Deeds. Susie and Luna were pooped at the end of the day. We got lots of pets and kisses and a little girl said she loved me ! ;-)) I like little girls, kind of scary, but girls are very smart :) Life is just darned weird sometimes. The kitten was sitting on the kitchen counter watching me eat last week, she is kind of uncoordinated I must say, and just slid off right into my bowls! I had to high-tail it out of the room like a whirling dervish. I AM NOT EATING IN THERE ANYMORE -who wants a plop of kitten feet in their food ? Until I re-calibrate my greyhound brain I am eating in a different spot. Hunh ! Piu tardi. Later. CC.

Too Cool For Words

Troppo Cool per le parole. That's me - Cool Coty, too cool for words ! Sometimes a picture IS worth a thousand words. The chicks dig me. Except for our new kitten Margherita, she is
nell' amore, in luv with Susie. I am jealous, I'm the handsome Dood in this joint. Margherita slinks in and out between Susie's legs, rubs under her chin, and takes a flying leap on her neck when Susie leaves the room. My bi-ped says "Not to worry, it's a kitty with raging hormones thing and it will be fixed in due time". I don't get it, but I'm a greyhound...
We went to pet therapy last Sunday, but it's still scary for me. Miss Luna Petunia and Jessie were the Belles of the Ball. Ciao, ciao.

The Trouble With Tigers

Un levriero nella grande difficoltà. 15 punti nel nuovo tigrotto. One greyhound in big trouble. 15 stitches in the new baby tiger. Now I'm not saying I did, or I didn't, but the human in this joint thinks I might have. I'm on the watch list. The cute kitty, that I love to look at and want to smell, suddenly came up with two chunks out of her backside. Suspiciously look like bite marks, but the Vet thinks they may have been old wounds that finally festered up from abscesses. I'm being good 'cuz I just want a little sniff of her. So far, no luck on that. Luna, Susie and I are playing in the yard today, it is such nice Fall weather and we are zip-zapping. Happy Thanksgiving to all of y'all. Ringraziamento felice. Cool Coty.
