Getting loved on. He also fancies himself as a guard dog, & loves to bark (he isn't aware greyhounds don't bark.)
When Maurice pesters him to play, while Jet's lying down (which is most of the time)
He doesn't really go for toys. But he loves to play with Polly.
He loves to lap up the milk & sugar in the bottom of my Cheerios!
He loves our new back yard, and also loves the dog park.
If I lie on the floor to cuddle with him, he puts his foreleg around me & hugs me!
When I knew that I wanted to add a retired racer to our family, I contacted Arizona Adopt-a-Greyhound (AAGI) online, and then went to their orientation program and met the AAGI folks. They initially set us up with a female named Missy, but she didn't work out because she didn't like other dogs. It was heartbreaking to have to give her up after only a few days, but we had to do so for everyone's safety & happiness. I decided to try one more time, and brought Jet (racing name Bailey Pepper) home on a Friday evening. He was fresh off the track, and had never been in a house before or met dogs other than greyhounds. We learned a lot together, as he settled in. Once he decided that being a pet was pretty neat, he REALLY went for the idea! I kept telling him that he didn't have to make up for 4 years of not being someone's baby, in just a few months! He really IS a big baby!
Jet has been with us for 4 years now, and he has won our hearts completely. He is sweet and silly and sensitive and funny. He grins and shows his fangs when he's really happy. He is a "natural" at PR appearances for AAGI, and loves meeting people. In fact, if he's at a PR event, he instinctively knows (from his very first time) that he's there to meet people, and he doesn't like it if anyone gets past him without being greeted!
UPDATE 11/03/07: Jet went over the Rainbow Bridge, this morning, after suffering terribly from a herniated disc in his neck. My heart is broken. He was my heart.
Jet black and fast as a jet plane!
