It was kind of odd picking up his gear. For example, I have his muzzle (it's greeeen) and I have never used a muzzle before. It's nice to have it just in case, though. I'm going to need to cut his nails while he's here so I'll probably be making use of it at least once since he doesn't like having his paws messed with. I know it's a good idea to have a muzzle for your dog just in case, but I don't know...I've never felt the need with Ebon. I've been through a fair amount with him, including the whole seizure thing, but he's not a biter. He doesn't even nip. If he gets upset he do this startled look, but doesn't even try to bite. Anyway, it's easy to make a temporary muzzle out of a leash in a pinch so I'm not that worried about it.
I would really love to get a greyhound when I can (namely when I'm in a place with a fenced yard so the dog can run), so this is almost like a sort of trial run. It's such a contrast, especially when it comes to things like Siggy's counter surfing. If I tell Ebon no, he'll leave stuff alone. Siggy has to be pushed away before he'll consider leaving it. Pretty normal for retired racers, though.
Tomorrow, weather permitting, I plan to take the dogs to a park. We'll see how that goes.
