Being the center of attention!
That her buddy Squeezie won't let her snuggle up next to her.
Long dog (who's missing most of his stuffing and his squeeker).
Tie between green beans, cheese and peanut butter.
Anywhere she can be oogled over by adoring fans :)
Running as fast as she can in a circle, in our bedroom.
We asked our local greyhound adoption organization to find us a special girl that could fill the void left by the passing of our first grey (Half A Minute). Lo and behold, LB Ebony arrived (now known as Cleo). She's a goofy, unlady like, knucklehead that always has us laughing.

I had a tumor the size of a golf ball removed from my throat on July 31st, 2009. It turned out to be cancerous :(
My owners decided not to put me through chemo because the tumor was encapsulated and my survival rate would not have been significantly increased due to the rarity of this type of cancer and its location.
I'm going to have chest x-rays every 6 months for a few years just to make sure nothing was missed during the orginal surgery. The lungs are the next place the cancer would show up.
I was laid up for a few weeks following my surgery, but my people spoiled me with soft food and my FAVORITE beverages.....tomato juice and chicken broth!
They even let me lay my head and neck on their electric heating pad, and rubbed my side 'till I dozed off.
When kids in the neighborhood saw me out walking r-e-a-l-l-y slow and asked about my shaved and swollen neck.....they said they would pray for me after they were told that I had a cancerous tumor removed.
After a few weeks I started to feel more like my old self. I regained my strength and resumed my role of making everybody laugh!
I even traveled to South Dakota in September with my people (and Squeezie) to watch the annual buffalo round-up in Custer State Park.
Okay.....Squeezie and I weren't allowed to "actually watch".....but we did get to take a nap in the rental van while our people watched the round-up.
I'm looking forward to doing more traveling this coming year because my people got Squeezie and me a 34 foot Class A R.V.
