There’s a technical term for almost everything – the zoomie

Did you know that the technical term for the zoomie is Frenetic Random Activity Period (or FRAP for short)?

Enjoy these videos of greyhound zoomies!

Zoomies

It’s been feeling a little warmer over the last couple of days; the clear days with sun make me think that spring isn’t far off.

Izzy is feeling it, too.  On Sunday, she got so warm after chasing her tennis balls at the dog park that she sat down in mud puddle to cool off (she wasn’t so keen on the bath that followed).

Yesterday, she did ‘zoomies’ in the back yard; something she hasn’t done for over a month since it has been so cold…
