Bracken settled in very well. She has grown
quite a bit and is now changing colour. She's lost her reddish tinge
but is still more brindled than grey although on her hind quarters
she has gone light. We took her to puppy socialisation and training
where they said she was the best sighthound they'd had.Though it's
different when she's out and she's found someone she wants to play
with! She loves to run and run. It is lovely to see her and Bramble
playing together as she is so much faster than him ,she torments
him by just keeping out of reach.
We took them to the lure coursing meeting but she prefers anything
live to chase. They both travelled beautifully as you can see in
the photo of them in a heap. She has managed to injure herself twice
this year. Firstly she spiked a hind leg which needed stapling.
She removed them,chewed the collar and when it had healed and the
collar off,chewed it open again. She then came in season and after
that has managed to split a pad badly, on a flint. All in all she
has had a boring few months. It has nearly healed and she is now
being walked again. During this time she has been gardening, much
to my husbands dismay. Deadheading flowers, digging up plants and
breaking off anything that's in her way!
She is great fun and wonderful company, she always wants to be with
you. It was a steep learning curve for us, in spite of having the
greyhounds. Thank you for letting us have her, she is much admired
