This is George
The owner of retired greyhound George says _ George has settled in really well :-). He worked out how to get up and down stairs on his first night, loves my bed and the sofa (yes, he sleeps next to me all night), and most of all, really loves his food! He's put a little weight on (which the vet said was fine), and although he won't take food from my hand yet, he's learnt what the sound of the fridge door opening means and magically appears by my side when he hears it! He and Blaze are absolutely brilliant together - George likes to follow Blaze when we're out on walks, and Blaze is like a new dog since George came home, happy, waggy and energetic again! :-) George doesn't really understand the sea or tides yet, although he's had a couple of paddles. He's a bit too interesting in other dogs off the lead still, so he stays on the lead on the beach, but is doing really well off the lead on quieter countryside walks - he was off the lead for a whole hour yesterday and kept either waiting for me to catch up or coming back to check in with me. This also meant he got the chance to have a good run, which is so lovely to see! He's doing all his toileting outside as long as he has access to the garden, and he's getting better at holding it if the back door is closed (and if he really can't, he has a wee right by the back door, bless him!). He sleeps through the night (and the morning, most of the afternoon, and the evening!!) and absolutely loves being stroked and being close to people - he really is a champion leaner! So, we're all super happy, loving having him as one of the family, and get the feeling that he is quite enjoying his retirement too!
