Tiger has come to his forever home

This afternoon Tiger came to his forever home with us. I am sooooo happy! He looks pretty happy too. So far, we have played ball, taken a few romps around the yard, sniffed every inch of the house and yard, peed on the most likely bushes and did a nice poopiedoo in the far corner near the compost bin and right up against the fence. He's such a good boy, my Tiger.

C~ took quite a few pics of him, which I am going to post here just so I can gush some more about how wonderful he is. We don't have stairs, so I'm not really sure how he is with them, must try the front steps tomorrow. At our main house entrance (the garage side), we have a ramp which he seems to love as he gets going at a good clip when he goes up it.

He loves his stuffed plushie toys, especially the baby seal one, and we also have a squeaky rubber toy that he just adores. I have never seen a greyhound BOUNCE before. He just gallops and hops around like a little puppy, it's hilarious! Oh and the other funny thing he does is stare out through the security bars of our front window to the house across the street which has 4 cats roaming around.

Looks like the only thing we need to work on is whining, which he hasn't done much but I don't want him doing every time he sees a cat across the street. He hasn't been counter surfing yet, but he has stuck his nose over the counter so we will put a quick stop to that as well.

Ok, now for the piccies. Enjoy!

Almost there

Yes, Saturday is almost upon us, and I have to work tomorrow from 7:30-12:30. Who goes to the damn dentist on Saturday morning? No one I tells ya!

Anywho, tomorrow is the day that Tiger comes to his forever home. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm so excited I could just spit. (Say that with a southern accent*grin*) Also, C~ has bought tons of toys, plushies and balls and other stuff, a bed of those off the ground things that everyone here in OZ seems to have for poochies outside during the day. Honestly, I don't think it's big enough for him...we shall see. Tons to do tonight and am still waiting for C~ to call me to go pick him up from the train station...poor thing would have to walk over a Km to get home in this heat and wearing long sleeves too. Well, time to go...I need to make sure to have some piccies taken when Kirsty brings him home to us. I promise to post as man as I can.

Decisions, decisions....

How could I decide? I just did. That's how. C~ asked me which one this morning and I changed my mind again, but I've stuck to it.

We are going to get Tiger unless something wierd or bizarre happens. Hopefully Kirsty Bringer of Everlasting Joy & Dogs shall be delivering him on Saturday. We shall see. In the meantime, C~ must finish the fence on one side of the house. The gates are all painted and ready to we are just waiting for the rest of the lattice to go with it. It was supposed to be delivered two days ago at the very latest. Now they say it will be here on Tuesday at the latest. Sheesh, on Tuesday we have a Cricket match to go see, then it's off to work for me and for C~ off to new job in the city. I am working Saturday morning, but if all goes well, we can have the fence (all 6 feet of it in length, including gate) put up between the two of us Friday night and be all ready for newbie dog on Saturday arvo.

Wooooooohhhhhhhooooooooo *does happy dance*
Have no piccies of Tiger but will as soon as I have him.
