Home inspection went smoothly this morning and soon after midday I had a call from Fen Bank Greyhound Sanctuary to say I could collect Penny any time. Within the hour I was on my way. Most of the way home she lay quietly on the back seat but it was a good job Roy, a neighbour, went with me as she tried to climb through to the front a couple of times.
First thing was for her to make an inspection of the garden:
The tassel hanging from her house collar has a bell. This is to give any cats which wander in the garden a reasonable chance of escaping before Penny assumes they are rabbits.
After a couple of short walks and a few games of ball on the lawn followed by a welcome meal it was a case of a greyhound doing what greyhounds do best.
As racing greyhounds have never met any other types of dog she wears a muzzle for a few weeks when out for walkies until she learns they can be friends and not meals.
