It's Getting Cold Outside!

Weird things start to happen around here when the temperature drops....

Now, we are in Texas, so most of you will hear us complain about the cold and blow it off, roll your eyes and scoff.... but you must remember we are used to 100+ degree summers that last 9 months of the year (OK we may be exaggerating there...just a tiny bit) Me and Nelson were born, raised, raced and retired all in Houston so it is all we know.  Anyhow, when temps drop below 65 we bust out the jackets.  So deal with the whining and humor us ;)

Here is where the weird part comes in, you know me and Nelson snuggle, we share our beds all the time. But when Mr Extremely Grumpy and Mr Hyper Social Butterfly start sleeping on the same bed and TOUCHING it is something to gawk at.....


Yep, that is Streamer and Cabby keeping eachothers feet warm....



As you can see, Mr Extremely Grumpy (regularly known as Streamer) already has his jacket on, he lives in that thing if the weather even hints at being chilly.  He will find it, wherever it is, and actually bring it to The Momma, dragging it through the house in his mouth.  She holds it up and he will walk into it to put it on by himself.  He gets really upset if she takes it off too.... refusing to leave the porch to pee when she sends us all outside if he is "Naked"  :)

What can we say, he is an odd one, but he is our brother and we love him.


Well friends, we had a big day planned tomorrow but The Momma canceled it.  There is a Halloween party for hounds about an hour and a half away from us but since Daddyman has to work The Momma decided that she didn't feel comfortable driving by herself. Plus I get carsick if I am in the car for more than an hour. So tomorrow we will go for a trip to Petsmart to get dogfood and later have a photoshoot in the yard of us in our ACTUAL costumes! No photoshop! We will see how that goes.... So stay tuned!

And just in case you thought we were joking about Mr Extremely Grumpy's name.....

Named by the breeder, not by The Momma! But..... it fits him......

  1. That's interesting that Streamer will actually fetch his coat and bring it to your Mom! He and I would probably get along nicely, despite any grumpiness. I hate being cold too! Can't wait to see your costumes. Happy Halloween!

  3. I guess the lesson here is, be careful when choosing a name. ;o)

  4. Whoever named him must have really known him! Lilac does the same thing. She wants her coat on early and she does NOT like to take it off! Of course, she also expects Mom to know when she wants the fan blowing on her in the summer,too! And they say I'm spoiled!

  8. How funny that Steamer will carry his own coat for you to put it on him! How smart is he to know when to get a little bit warmer for his walks! I love greyhounds sooo much! I am your newest follower via the blog hop!
