Greta is the luckiest dog! A friend from high school has decided to adopt Greta.
The Grub will go to live in the suburbs this weekend. She will get to sleep indoors, cuddle with two kitty-cats, play with two young boys...and never come in contact with a porcupine ever again. Her main duties will include being adorable, and loving her new family.
We are so happy for our Grubby. And we are so thankful to my friend and her family for giving Greta a wonderful new home.
I've had Greta since she was 5 weeks old. She is 7 now. That is a long time. But the whole family has talked about it and we agree that Greta would be better off...and we would be better off...if she had a home that could keep her from getting into porcupines. She refuses to learn her lesson. And I am tired of spending several days a month holding her down with my entire body weight while Clancy pulls quills.
Greta (with the exception of porcupines) is a remarkably low-maintenance dog. She does need brushing, of course. But she is totally low-key. She is the least demanding dog I have ever met. Food, water, a pat on the head...she's happy. She can be outside year-round, but she is completely house-trained and would not mind living in a house either. She never barks in the house. She sleeps with all four feet in the air. And of all our dogs she is the one that makes us LAUGH the most with her quirks.
Greta would be perfect for a person that just wants a quiet, undemanding companion. She never jumps on people, knows basic commands, comes when called, takes food from your hand with a delicate mouth. In short, she is just a calm, quiet, mild, relaxed, even-tempered dog. The kind that would be happy with a nice place to sleep and one or two slow walks a day. (She would not make a good jogging partner at all.) She's a dog that likes to amble comfortably through life...a path of least resistance dog.
Greta never ceases to amuse us with her cuteness.
And if we weren't tired of the porcupine issue...she wouldn't be going anywhere.
If someone out there just needs a quiet pal, please call for more information.
Be aware that I will be very picky about where Greta is placed.
