Annie. *cough* Stop tormenting the fosters.
|Please forgive the "stock footage" of Annie. I simply cannot get many pictures that show her eyes.|
Maera even bypassed the sack containing ground beef, which NEVER happens, because she saw these collars in another bag. She went right for it.
Argos was pleased with his as well. He let me put it on him, and then preened and arched his neck and wagged his tail.
The special occasion? Actually, we'd intended to get collars like this for some time now, but either didn't have the money to drop on them, or didn't see any designs that we liked in that moment in time, whatever. We purchased them at the Golden Bone Pet Resort here in Pittsburgh - the money benefits Steel City Greyhounds, but they are Silk Road collars. You can buy them on the Web as well if you don't live near here.
There WAS a special occasion, though. Last night Argos and I went to the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show to "work" the Steel City Greyhounds booth for a few hours. He always has a great time meeting people, and did very well.
Maera, who is still timid around strangers, stayed home with Jeff. Apparently, she was completely heart-broken and cried most of the night. We are going to start taking her to meet and greets next month - maybe for shorter durations than normal in the beginning. But the home show was going to be far too much too soon. It's quite the event, but not one for a dog with some fear of people.
I'm hoping for a quiet week. Argos has to go to the vet on Tuesday, for a dental cleaning. The poor guy just had to have one last year, but his teeth are phenomenally bad, despite the work that I put into keeping them up this year. It will take him at least a day to recover from that, so I'm hoping that Maera can entertain herself for awhile. I guess we'll see!
