Patty Cake

Patty Ann, or Patty Cake, as we sometimes call her now, has been at the Hound Hotel for almost a week now. She gets an A for her behavior so far. Patty is a superb greyhound. She is friendly, respectful, beautifully behaved, and such a pleasure to have around the house. We haven't had a track dog this easy for a while. She has been a little reserved for the first week, but is now integrating herself into the family. She loves people and loves pets, but has been a little nervous up until today. That is normal. She is now getting used to the idea of being in a home and is learning to enjoy all the benefits of that. She has spent plenty of time this evening sniffing the grass and just being with the family on the deck. She seems to like it a lot.
If you are a potential first time greyhound owner reading this blog, then you should consider looking at Patty Ann. Your first greyhound is always the toughest, as they have no hound role model. The secret to the Hound Hotel is that we have the resident greyhounds, and they most of the work for us. They teach the newbie what to do and when to do it. Patty has it all down already, and she didn't need much training anyway. She is a good one.
I'll let you in on another little greyhound secret too. Greyhounds are pretty big dogs and most people don't know much about them. They are very athletic and muscular, and look like they could tear people apart. You may walk down the street, as we have, and people cross to the other side of the street. People don't know that they are the friendliest dogs around. That isn't always a bad thing. You can take a nice walk with your dog and nobody will bother you.
Patty is an A+ dog, and she will make a great addition to any home. If you would like to meet Patty, please contact Denise Davis.
