Polly's 5th Gotcha Day - 15th September, 2017

I can't believe that on this day five years ago I got Polly.  

Two weeks previous I lost my previous Greyhound Song very suddenly.  When I got back from the vets, holding just her collar and lead, I phoned up the kennels where I had got her from and went the same day to look at dogs.

What better way could I honour Song than to give another Greyhound a home.

I was lucky that Polly chose me.  When they got her out of the kennel, she came over to me, leaned against me and looked up with those beautiful brown eyes.  In that instance my broken heart started to mend.




Just like Song, she was in season and so the kennels kept her for two weeks.  On Saturday 15th September, 2012 dad drove me back to the kennels to collect Polly.

My flat had been so empty, but as soon as she walked through the door, it felt like a home again.

My desk this morning.

No crafting of late, due to my back being really bad, so having to sit for a short time at the desk, then sit in my recliner with the heat pad.

Finally A Sofa

I have not had a sofa since having Greyhounds.  I know I am a terrible Greyhound owner.

My girls reckon there must be a clause in the adoption papers that states 'A sofa must be available to your Greyhound/s at all times.  If a human is on it and a Greyhound wants to get up, the human MUST move'.

There are various sized rigid dog beds in the flat.  The two in the bedroom have duvets in them.  The larger rigid bed in the living room has a memory foam pad in it.  There is also a memory foam pad on the floor in the living room.


Honey on the memory foam pad, whilst Polly waits for her to move.



Polly gave up and went and laid in the dog bed.


Then a couple of weeks ago this sofa arrived.   Thought Polly would be the one that used it the most, but for the first few days she wouldn't even get on it.  Honey needed no coaxing.

This was the first time Polly got on the sofa.



At last my girls are completely happy.

On my desk this morning are the gubbins for some birthday cards.  I have already finished a few, which are on my keyboard (and shown below).



These are the cards I have made so far.  The background papers are ones I have coloured in.
