I’m Phoebe and I’m a happy dog!
I’m Phoebe and I arrived in Italy last night very very late. The weather was so bad in Amsterdam that our plane couldn’t leave and we had to wait and wait and wait forever…
I was in the hold with Prince and King and there was no ladies’ toilet, so when I arrived I was a bit yellow and smelly, but the humans who were waiting for us (and what a welcome that was, thank you!) didn’t seem to mind and cleaned me up as best they could.
Then we headed for home, my ‘foster’ home they call it, because on Saturday I’ll be going to my forever home with my new Mum, although I do rather like my foster Mum too…she’s not too bad.
At the house I met a greyhound called Rosden and a galgo called Rodrigo and I felt much better then, but what I didn’t know was that meanwhile the humans were preparing this thing for me called a ‘bath’. What a torture!
I did my best and soaked the humans as much as I could and turned the bathroom into a swimming pool, but in the end I have to admit my fur went back to being all white and sweet-smelling, so I was once more presentable!
Rosden the girl greyhound immediately decided to adapt to the Chinese time my body clock was still on which is 8 hours ahead of theirs, so even though it was two in the morning we jumped about and ran up and down the corridor until we were told off…
Rodrigo the galgo is an old lord set in his ways and he didn’t join in our games, but he did bark at me when I ran past him but I didn’t mind, I just changed route!
Then my foster Mum told me it was time to go to bed and I had a big green velvet cushion all to myself, it was so comfy! I slept like a queen all through the night, then this morning I went out and did all my business outside…they say I’m such a clever girl, but all that just seems normal to me…
Today I’m going to explore the whole house properly. I’ve already understood that the rubbish bin is off limits and that I musn’t put my paws on the table but hey, I’m only little and I have to see everything that’s going on!
I’ve eaten really well today and I am starting to like this Italian life.
Thank you Samantha Gauchat for having brought me here and thank you Pet Levrieri for having found me a forever Mum!
My tail is always wagging now, I’m a happy dog!
