(Allie is nothing like Jack from The Shining, it's just that it's Halloween haha.)
Yesterday morning we were excited to meet up with Petey's sister, and actual littermate, Allie. She is a darling little, eight month old, ten pound, blue and white colored, Italian Greyhound. Now, not as rowdy as her brother, Allie, is slightly more subdued, and takes a slower approach to meeting and greeting with other canines. With her personality and tiny frame, we had Allie give it a go in our Little Roll Play Area. There, she was nervous to begin with, but then got comfortable with The Fort rather quickly, as other dogs showed up and the pack grew. More of an "observer", Allie pranced around the play area with her elegant gait, which alone, is a sight to see in this attractive yet quite slender breed. Their gait is very "regal" looking, high-stepping and free. It reminds one of some type of fancy-horse trotting for a show.
Even though Allie is dainty in appearance, it's clear that she is a hardy creature. Moreover, she puts up with Brother Petey's antics on the daily! Allie enjoyed her Assessment Day, and although she didn't play much, we're pretty sure she will eventually, and know that she does. If anything, it's just nice for her to spend some time at Dog Daycare, to socialize and hangout, without brother Petey in the mix. Ya know, to have a little "Allie only time". We've heard Petey can get a little domineering with her. Brother and sister stuff lol!
Swell job yesterday Allie, we look forward to seeing you again.
On behalf of all of us here at Fort Fido, have a fun, safe, and Happy Halloween!
