Over the years, shy Daphne and has become more doglike. Over Thanksgiving she surprised everyone. My in-laws came and brought their two puppies, (Special Guest Pups) Henry and Lucy. Henry is the little(er) one…
While Joey watched suspiciously and stayed out of the way (it’s hard to see exactly what those little things zipping around all the way down there are) and Phoebe slept, it was Daphne who bounced around and played – yes, played – with the puppies.
She chased ‘em, she dropped at ‘em, she even grabbed a toy and attacked it to show what she’s capable of.
Daphne. Played. With a toy.
It’s hard to believe this is the same dog I once had to pick up and carry (all 55 pounds of her) to the backyard to do her business.
Greyhounds carry baggage heavier than most dogs. It’s good to see Daphne leaving more and more of it behind.
