Good morning my dears! Greyhound is hugged :-) Been on a very pleasant morning walk up to Heidelberg castle and letting Ailsa have a happy zoom around the castle gardens (a lot of squirrels to run after).
On a second thought after last week's show (and thank you again for the dedication - in fact, this word works in various ways), I found a better word to describe Ailsa's breed: sighthound mix? rather than greyhound? possibly.
Looking forward to today's show, Amanda and Jim, and hello all. x

Hi Heidee! That works, it's more general and greyhounds are a type of sighthound too :)

Russell is quite the character and his own man.Now he spends half the day alone under the couch and ignores me. He's a doof.

Their sense of hearing is about four times as sensitive as ours,

Most animals aren't the marrying kind. Less than five percent are believed to pair together for life, and even if they do stay together they do plenty of cheating.

Love magpies! We don't have them here, but they really appeal to me--their cheeky personalities and pretty looks.

that cheetahs tune just miraculously saved a wild bunny rabbit about to be overtaken by a coyote or brown fox in my backyard as i was walking onto my porch with my little portable. the drums was all i had heard till the cheetah kicked in at just right time to stun the coyote mix creature and look up at the radio and stop his pursuit. the rabbit rushed off into the brush (hedgegrove now i guess)

Rabbit will probably be fan of the show for life. Coyote not so much.

uh oh, i had radio in pocket. i am radio to coyote. he will probably be around longer than the rabbit, hmmm . guess its not about influencing the powerful friends though. last time i seen him 2 months ago him or his brother had gotten wild duck on pond. miracles only sometimes.
