Stroller Time

When Mom came home from work last night, she took me out in my stroller while she walked Camie. Here I am seeing where we are going.
This was our eventual destination. We went to Papa's (Mom's dad's) house. Mom had to pick up mail from Papa, so she wheeled me up to the door, and then unzipped the stroller and picked me up and let me in. I was so surprised to be back in my old house. I got to explore and Papa pet me.


After we got done at Papa's, I got put back in my stroller and off we went home. Now, I am watching where we were instead of where we were going. Papa is only a couple of houses from Mom, so she and Camie get to go there all the time, but this is only the second time I've been back.

And, there is our destination ahead.. It is a weird angle because the wall and fence you see belong to our neighbor, but you see all of our house, and Mom's car in the driveway.

Once we got home and Mom put my stroller away, she let me out for a few seconds to do a bit of exploring. Not that I could do much, because as you can see, Camie stuck to me like glue to make sure I didn't go anywhere.
(Dumb sisters)

Here is Camie right before we went in. Mom is doing a no-no here. Camie should be on a leash. When a greyhound is walked, they should always be on a leash because if they see something fluttering at the end of the block, or from the corner of their eye, they could (potentially) take off after it, and be lost before they know it. Greys don't see details when they run, they only see the object they are chasing, so they could be a mile away quickly without any clue as to how they got there. That being said, Camie just doesn't give a darn about anything but Mom, us cats and her bed. She doesn't seem to notice anything while she is outside, except for where Mom is going, so Mom felt comfortable enough to take off her leash before we went in the door but it is only with Camie that Mom would do that. Our first Grey, Hunter, had his leash on before he left the house, and it wasn't until he was back safely inside that it was taken off.

And finally, here I am recovering from my big adventure.

That looks like strollering is fun. It must have been nice to go visiting.

How fun! My mom once knew a beautiful greyhound who'd been rescued-she was a lovely girl, so sweet, and all she wanted to do was run. She could never be out without a lead..she'd be gone in nothin' flat! Happy restin', Tavi!

What a fun adventure. We haven't been out in our stroller since the summer, but it makes a nice cat bed in the living room, MOL. We love the GHounds too, cuz they look like us!

Wow! That is some adventure. I wonder if mom would get me a stroller. I wonder if I would agree to sit in the stroller.

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Maybe you could get Camie her own stroller and then you could forget the leash all together!

Going out in your stroller sounds like a great adventure, Tavi. It's good of Camie to keep such a close eye on you.

What a lovely adventure. I don't have one of those strollers either. You are also lucky to have Camie to protect you outdoors. Altogether you must feel very safe.
