Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow

Which is foxtrot time, as anyone over a certain age knows.

But it’s also Greyhound Time. 

From this:

To this:

And back to this:

Ah, tis hard to be a greyhound. Such responsibility, to be always beautiful, shiny, winsome, adored and admired. To always be ready for the walkies, the ride in the car, any passing treats, the zoomies in the back yard. Such a hard life demands ample snoozing time. Eh, Mouse?

  1. Well, if you’re going to run that fast even once in a lifetime, you need a lot of sleep to prepare for the event and then to recover from it! The thing I noticed was that the cheetah was working hard for her dinner and the greyhound had a big grin on her face all they way – she was having fun!

  2. I like snoozy Mouse better 🤩

    Meanwhile, Miss Luna gave us a scare today by having what appeared to be a seizure. Unplanned trip to the vet, blood test, x-rays, then home with some steroids to take down whatever inflammation may have been the cause. At least no cancerous mass was found. And she’s just as perky and committed to getting every treat she feels entitled to as she was before the seizure. Whew.

    And Mouse has certainly perfected the art of snoozing (and smooching, I imagine!).

    • katechiconi says:

      Yes to both. He’s currently lying on his bed asleep, legs akimbo and a smile on silly furry face. I’d give him a treat but he’s not allowed anything right now due to his wobbly tummy.

  5. To be able to run. I remember that, maybe but never ever like a greyhound. 😉 He is just too sweet, even asleep.

    • katechiconi says:

      Asleep, he’s just a great big softie, but when he runs you can see the agile hunter, the predator and the sleek, heavily muscled beast he really is. And then he flops over and snoozes again!

    That’s a fun comparison.
    I love his silly face (top photo) and the fact that he looks as if you’ve tucked him up in bed.

    • katechiconi says:

      He does have a silly face when he’s asleep, showing his little teeth in a smile. The Husband flung the blanket over him when I got up to go to the loo, and when I came back His Imperial Mouseness had hijacked my spot… Since then, we’ve instituted a charcoal grey cotton bedspread for Mouse visitations; not so picturesque but it doesn’t go ‘grey’ quite so quickly!

    A dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  10. More and more I’m convince they’re super-souls packaged in a dog’s body. I still haven’t been able to watch the film A Dog’s Journey… I keep remembering sobbing my way through A Dog’s Purpose.

    • katechiconi says:

      And as for Red Dog (the original, not the spin-offs), we were both howling and the Husband still refuses to watch it again because he got so upset. Currently Mouse is following me around the house as I do my day’s jobs, lying down and supervising in each room. He doesn’t just *think* he’s the superior being, he *knows*!

  11. What joy to provide him with this life.

    Lovely to see the Marvellous Mouse!

    And thanks for the video, I hadn’t seen that before. Shinee is impressed.
