Introducing Anzi, our newest temporary member of the family:
Anzi is a greyhound, and as you can see from the pictures in this post, it is very difficult to get a picture of her with her eyes open 🙂
Greyhounds. Sleep. A. Lot. 16-18 hours a day, to be exact.
I fell in love with greyhounds when I was about 14 or so. JW and I were finally approved to be a foster home for Greyhound Pets of America this year, and so this is our first chance to welcome a grey into our home. And what a doll she is!
Anzi has beautiful manners in the house, and loves to be rubbed and petted. She lives for her walks and gets so excited when she sees the leash that she literally starts to prance. And of course, in her spare time (which is most of the time), she flops down on her big ol’ comfy bed and veges out.
She follows me around the house from room to room, and if I disappear around a corner, she comes to find me. And she sleeps soundly through the night on her own bed in our room – a huge blessing!
The cats are less than thrilled, but they’re warming up to her. They don’t go crazy over her, but they don’t run from her anymore either. It’s kind of like, “let’s mutually ignore each other, k?” Works for me.
We have Anzi for two weeks (about a week and a half now), so it will be interesting to get to know her and see her personality develop! It’s been lots of fun so far.
