After Abby's death we got an Australian Shepherd mix, Star, to keep May company. Greyhounds do not do well alone. The companion can be a person or animal. Star will be that companion when we are not home.

Star is about 2 years old. The previous owner kept her in the back yard. They had too many dogs, and when there were noise complaints they took Star to a shelter. She was untrained, so Dianne busy.

Star is a bundle of energy. Somewhere in her keeping the back yard free of intruders (squirrels) she cut the pad on her paw. (If you click on the picture you can see her bandage better.)

Being a peg-leg hasn't slowed her down. She still jumps on her guard rounds, and clears the step to the deck when she comes in. She gallops around. When I was downstairs and she ran down the hall I heard br-dr-dr-RUMP br-dr-dr-RUMP all the way down the hall.

She has an Elizabethan collar to keep her from chewing the bandage. She doesn't know how lucky she is not to get the old plastic type. (Poor dog!)
She recognizes animals on TV. I tried to catch her sniffing the TV, but missed it.

What a cutie! Intelligent, too, if she can recognize animals on TV!
