Its the end of the world as she knows it...

So my darling dear Sophie is getting a sissy or a brother today. Can you BELIEVE IT?! She is getting a greyhound. *gulp* If you did not know, a greyhound once bit the top of my ear off at the dog park. You can click here to read about it (You can also see very handsome photos of me when I was young and pics of a young cowboy pig - go ahead and look, I can wait...)

So now that you are all caught up, back to the subject at hand. What if this greyhound is a vicious ear eater like the one that bit me???? I decided to tell Tanner to do some research and get back to me. (younger siblings ARE good for something)

OK that JOE said tell him about those Greyhounds. OK This book says LOTS to know about dogs and stuff.

It totally must be GOOD because Dennis the Viszla dog wrote it!!

OK here is that greyhound page...

JOE it says GENTLE and SENSITIVE!!! NOT VICIOUS!! It also says DOCILE but I don't know WTF that means, must be like FRENCH or some crap. but I think Sophie will be OK Joey.

I wonder what that book says about BOSTON TERRIERS...

OMDOG Playful and very affectionate...

NOT! LOLOL. More like Grumpy! Joey must be some other breed or something.

OK can go back to whatever it was you were doing, your research is OVER.

So I guess I am a bit less worried about Sophie, I do hope she can adjust to having a sibling. and I really hope she doesn't get a DOOFUS.

Affectionate...that book is CRAZY...

Oh boy. Poor Sofie. Her days of only dogdom are coming to an end. And, you never know what you are going to get. I don't have to tell you about that, Joey. You and Gus know better than anybody.

Good luck to Sofie. Hope her new younger sibling is works out and is lots of fun.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Hi, Joey...

I hope Sophie likes her new brother or sister Greyhound...

I don't think they all like to bite ears off...You probably just ran into one that was having a bad day & his parents didn't know enough to keep him home...

Hi Joe and Tanner
I know some really nice greyhounds so she should be ok. Sorry to read about your ear. That must have been scary. I bet you are playful and affectionate when you wanna be.

Blogger Gus said... know how breed standards are set, don't ya? By the exceptions (Tanner, Teka, etc.) who prove the rule. So, while Sophie's new sib may be all the things the book says, he/she may also be like the one who bit off your ear.

Here's hopin' she gets one like my pal Raven

Did you miss the part that said you are also intelligent? We know a few greyhounds around here and they all seem very nice AND docile, whatever that means.

Joey! I went to Miss Sophie's bloggy and there were NO pictures of HER! Did that freaky greyhound scare her off?

Nice to see you during happier times with cowboy pig. Wonder what that book says about relentlessly huge doggies. Most likely that they are just the best and smartest and most handsome ever.

Joey! I am okay. But thanks so much for worrying about me and getting that Doofus to do that research. He's here and he's has freakishly long legs. Now I know how Wally feels.


P.S. I love that pic of you with the band aid on your ear. So cute.

Ohhh nooo.. yet another of my friend is subjected to having a younger sibling.. **sigh**

Greyhound sounds fun.. there's a greyhound in our neighbourhood and he's pretty friendly.

Good luck Joey, you have a new brother/ sister in-law

I am so nervous for SophieB. We know how horribly awry a new baby brudder can go. Mine has been following me around because he is afraid he is going to get left behind in our move. Maybe I shouldn't have told him he had to find a new family.

I looked at your old pictures and you were ham damnsome but I think that we both get better with age, right?

Love the vintage pictures and seeing you pre-Tanner! Wowowow. Can't wait to hear all about Sophie and the Greyhound!

And I bet that book also said Cockers were "sweet, family dogs". Yeah, as if!!!

That was nice of the Doofus to do the research. Maybe Sophie's greyhoundog won't be so dang nippy!

I don't think I would take as gospel any book written by Dennis the Vizsla dog and read by the Doofus. Somehow, the information and the interpretation could be alll wrong.
So I say, don't worry about Sophie, she can take care of herself and every greyhound I have know has been a nice dog. The one that bit your ear off was an exception!

Take it easy, Joe!

Hi Joe
We have always met really nice greyhounds and the book seems to agree so it should be OK!
Did you a look to see what it says about basset hounds?
We are both bassets but have completely different temperaments - a bit like you and Tanner!
We agree, the book is crazy!!
Does it say you are both adorable even if one is grumpy?

Hey Joey,
I bet Sophie feels much better hearing that her new sib will be docile enough for her to beat up.
And skinny enough to stuff under the couch when she gets sick of him.

Good thing he checked it out...Hey maybe when it rains Sophie can stand under the greyhound so she won't get wet...Love A+A

Ha ha, the bird books say cockatiels are affectionate and look at crabby old CC-man. Those books aren't always right :)

I hope Sophie gets along well with her new sibling.
