GIG 2012

We went to GIG!

And $105 dollars later, Ferguson now has his own more masculine raincoat (Winry essentially took the yellow one...fits her better anyway), Winry finally has a warm winter coat, and I have a replacement squawker, more Pawz boots, and a super cute sweatshirt that is my favorite color that has a greyhound on it. It was a successful trip.

Winry, I think, had the most fun out of anyone though. Her two-year-oldness isn't really that obvious most of the time, but it sure did establish itself at this event.  She was SO excited to see every greyhound and desperately wanted to greet each and every one of them.  Normally when we pass other dogs, she's moderately interested and while she'd like to say "hi" she is able to contain herself.  With greyhounds, this was much more difficult for her!  I think she missed her greyhound brethren.  I found this funny in contrast to Ferguson, who would occasionally go say "hi" to the other hounds, but never once made his leash taut in effort to get to another dog (when Winry did literally every time!).

The hours of walking and greeting has left them still sleepy, even two days after!  I think we'll have to take just a leisurely stroll in the park perhaps, instead of a dog park visit.

Sorry we missed you. Will be on the lookout for you next year. Glad you enjoyed GIG.

I have always found it fascinating how these greyhounds love other greyhounds. When they are together it's like a huge family reunion!

I had no idea you were going to GIG! I wish I'd known, we'd have looked for you!
