Christmas house guest

It’s been a busy week and so the blog has been quieter than normal.  Then yesterday, on Christmas Eve, I got a text from another greyhound owner.  His kennel plans had fallen through and he wondered if I could take his dog, Sala, for a couple of days.

No worries!

Bed switching

To make a house guest feel welcome, you let them sleep in your bed. You sleep in theirs.

Izzy has enjoyed having a playmate today (Christmas Day).  We went for an off-leash run at the Groynes dog park.

And after a breakfast, it was time for a big rest.

Izzy never goes on the sofa (she prefers the queen-sized bed). Sala found it quite comfortable, however.

Then it was time to tuck into the pigs ears that Sala’s Dad brought:

Followed later by an afternoon walk, and some cooked liver over dog food.  We are once again settling in for the night and more play time tomorrow.
