Winnebago checking in

So, what's been happening?

Well, thanks to Sarge's Nickname game I am Winnebago for the next week.

Secondly, the Lady Of The House has a truly STINKING cold and is coughing and sneezing EVERYWHERE! YUCK!

But she still took me to the greyhound walk that was organised by Perry Barr Retired Greyhound Trust in Burton-on-Trent yesterday.

I got to wear the Winnie the Pooh bandana she bought me at Crufts.

Now maybe it was that, or maybe it was the steroids I've been on since last autumn, but I got very feisty with the dogs gathered outside the library in town and barked at ANY hound that looked at me.

The LOTH was bundled up in a big grey waterproof and her pink scarf and got to talk croak to her friend Jane (in the green coat) who came along with her two greyhounds Jack and Sophie.

I got a bit friendlier when we started walking. The Man Of The House walked with me and the LOTH took charge of Jack. But a few of the hounds weren't too keen when the walk included a few steps.

Jack and one other greyhound had to be carried up. But I was fine.

We also met up with Rolo Hound - who the LOTH has tweeted with but never met before.

Rolo's dad and my MOTH were showing off their matching backpacks from Pedigree - part of the Play Again campaign for JointCare+

Rather than make this post too long I'll share my other news about the lovely Ann from Zoolatry and how she has helped us another day.

Love and licks, Winnebago

Hope your mum is over her cold soon.

Song wouldn't have the liked the steps either. She may have gone up, but she'd have to be carried down them:)

Winnebago... you should tell your mom that CHICKEN SOUP is good fur a Snot Nose.. She should open a can and watch you eat it all up... and that will make her feel FANGtastic.

Winnebago? Surely not someone as delicate as yourself Winnie - it is a funny nickname though.
You must all have had a fun day with all those Greyhounds - we see you have the flourescent yellow bag too, LOL.

Winnebago, love it! Hope the LOTH gets better soon.

Did every hound in Great Britain get one of those yellow bags? I'm awfully curious about all of that!

It looks and sounds like a lovely day! I'm so glad you got to go out and socialize with other hounds. Some of us are just more exuberant in our greetings is all!
