Musings from Kylie:
"As winter approaches, us hounds like nothing more than to be warm. It's really important that after a brisk walk in the cold, or after eating our food in the hallway, or being made to go outside to do our business, that we do our utmost to get to the sofa as quickly as possible.
Why is it important to get a place on the sofa? Well, mainly because it's near to a radiator and when the heating is on it doesn't take long to warm our bellies. After food and sleep, keeping our bellies warm is the number one priority from November to March inclusive (it's a fairly high priority for the rest of the year too)
As you can see from the above picture, Lucy & I have reserved the best seats for ourselves on the sofa and are rather cosy. Unfortunately three into two doesn't go so at least one hound has the inconvenience of either taking one of the armchairs or in extreme cases, the floor.
Luckily, it's rare that we end up on the floor because the servants are often busy cleaning up after us outside or washing our food bowls or putting towels away after our paws have been dried, so they rarely get the best seats. Oh well, they have a great job already (taking care of us) so what more do they need? They don't have much time to sit down anyway, and as I write this they are in Wolverhampton buying us some more dog biscuits as we're down to our final 7 boxes. They do a good job to be fair, but we like to keep them on their toes so that complacency doesn't set in.
Winter is definitely upon us because our extra warm winter coats have appeared for the first time this week. It's never nice being out when it's windy and cold but at least we can feel snug in our fleece-lined garments. We do like this time of year though because we can crunch through the golden leaves and Ben loves to kick them everywhere, especially when one of us is standing behind him, or better still one of the servants.
There isn't much else to report this week so if you'll excuse me I'm going to turn over now and warm my back. I'll try to get another hound to write next week so I don't have to lift my head off this warm sofa.
Bye for now, Kylie (Ben & Lucy) xx"

We are occasionally lively greyhounds who live with two human servants. Sadly our house- mate Ben crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 23/09/18, just a few hours after writing his final blog. We miss him so much but we know he's running free and no longer in pain.
