The North Texas Puppy Raiser group recently had an outing to visit a fire station. Electric did not get to go because she is in heat. So she had a quiet evening at home instead.
All of the pups did great and seemed to enjoy the firemen. Thanks to Melissa Leslie for all the pictures!
Electra, her brother Nick, and her buddy Doug, recently visited the State Fair of Texas. What an adventure! Crowds of people, all kinds of sounds, food on the ground, smells, and smells, and smells, farm animals, parades, fountains – Whew!!! All of the senses were stimulated! And all three pups were absolutely stellar!
100 years of Greyhounds!

Southeastern Guide Dogs asks that their puppies in training spend about 3 weeks away from their assigned puppy raiser home. This provides the pup with a whole new range of experiences. That means camp time for these 9 month olds! So, our Dallas group got together at the Allen Skate Park for some fun with skateboards and bikes and skates and then we traded pups. What a confusing time for pups and raisers alike! Adjusting to new personalities! Whew!!
Electra has gone to stay with Harrison’s family and Harrison is at our house learning to be a farm dog. He is a Goldador (Lab/Golden cross) about 2 weeks older than Electra.
