I love dogs so much and I am so pleased to say that Aslan and I have committed to adopting a Greyhound! It’s been quite a long adoption process (because we wanted to do a lot of research), so I’m glad the time is finally here that we have a dog in our home! We decided to go with Tigger! It was such a hard choice because all of the dogs are so lovely, but I think things are going well. This week is more of a trial to see how the dog adapts to our home and lifestyle. He’s scared of a lot of things because this is his first time indoors! He was very intrigued by the TV.
One of the workers at the kennels advised us to change his name immediately if we’d like to. At first I thought it was a bit harsh to rename a dog, but she assured me that he has no idea what his name is and Tigger was in fact given to him at the kennel when he arrived. We really didn’t know what to name him, but we went with Reggi T. Yes. REGGI T. Thank you so much to @THEImaginista for suggesting it to us! Reverse of Tigger? Genius! Reggi suits him.
I’ve done a lot of research on ex-racers, but I was so concerned with him when he wouldn’t leave the kitchen for an entire day and night (except for walks). Luckily today he made his way to the living room and I think it’s a case of slow progress. Best to stay quiet around him and make sure he’s not too worried about anything. He’s such a good dog!
I’ll be sure to do another vlog at the end of the week to update you on his progress!
Any Greyhound owners out there with tips?
