The Greyhound learning curve

Alfie and Ollie came into our lives just over 3 months ago (through the FOTH Brisbane team).

We were new to greyhounds so it was a learning curve for both them, and us. I have always been a big believer that animals become part of the family, however I never quite expected how much these two gorgeous creatures would impact our lives! 

Trust me, it hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but the more we get to know them, the more we understand that most of the ‘bumps’ have not been from anything they have done wrong, but more from our lack of understanding. So we are learning!

We are learning their language, learning their unique personalities, and quirks. We have learnt greyhound-isms, such as roaching, chattering, derping, air snapping and certainly the occasional bench surfing (when they think we aren’t looking!)

Boundaries have been set and they are unbelievably well behaved …. but, if we take too long to come back downstairs (they do not come upstairs) … then Alfie and Ollie don’t hold back with a bark or a jump to let us know that they are impatiently waiting! 

It makes me smile every single time, as I know that’s a sign that they love us and need us just as much as we need them! 

Thank you for matching and bringing us all together … we can’t imagine life without them now!
